Konosuba Fantastic Days launched last week, to plenty of fans eagerly awaiting to see the smartphone adaptation of the disaster quartet. We gave our quick first impressions of the game here, but rest assured, even after a short while, the wackiness seeps through its every being.
The game, however, does have a little issue for those not residing in Japan. You see, most overseas players will be requiring a VPN to access and to continue playing the game. The official Twitter has acknowledged the global fanbase, with the message getting across even through Google Translate:
— 『このファン』この素晴らしい世界に祝福を！ファンタスティックデイズ《公式》このすばスマホゲーム (@konosubafd) March 2, 2020
The Tweet mentions the aforementioned “plans to increase number of distribution countries”. With the game only just starting out, we won’t be expecting a release in other territories so soon. However, with official acknowledgement of interest, perhaps it could head over to China and Korea first, maybe even without the IP restriction so that people can play it more easily.
Who would you hope to pick up the localized versions of Konosuba Fantastic Days? In the mean time, the rest of us will have to stick to using VPNs to access. We certainly hope you’ve been enjoying the game even with the added troubles, while we all cross our fingers for a more international release sooner than later.
