Not in the cards
Developer Granzella has announced that they will no longer be continuing or supporting the service of their game Hototogisu Tairan. Hototogisu Tairan is a strategic card battling game only released in Japan on the Nintendo Switch (there’s also a mobile version).
Service for the game will end on June 30, 2023. In-game purchases have also been disabled, and the game itself will be unlisted from digital stores beginning on June 8th. However, if you already have the game downloaded, you’ll be able to make use of it until the closing date at the end of the month.
See below for the developer’s statement regarding the closure (translated from Japanese).
We apologize for the inconvenience, but we will be terminating the service for “Hototogisu Tairan” at 12:00 on Friday, June 30, 2023.
We sincerely apologize for the sudden news to our customers who have been patronizing us.
Since the service started on April 26, 2018, we have continued the service so that customers can enjoy it.
It is thanks to the support of our customers that we were able to operate the service for about five years. We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to our customers for their patronage.
