Today, Bushiroad International announced the global release date for Love live! School Idol Festival 2 Miracle Live via Twitter. That same post announcing the news. also revealed that the game will be shutting down in just a few months in what might be the strangest game announcement I’ve seen in a long time.
Love live! School Idol Festival 2 Miracle Live is an anime-themed “rhythmic action-adventure” game and the sequel to Love live! School idol festival. Before the original game was shut down in March 2023, players could transfer their songs and cards to the Japanese version of Love live! School Idol Festival 2 Miracle Live which was released in April 2023. However, the international version of the rhythm game sequel was delayed, according Arcade Touch.
But there’s good news: it’s finally coming out in February for everyone else. Bad news: he will be dead and gone by the end of May.
January 25the official Love live! The series’ Twitter/X/whatever account posted an announcement that the global version of the sequel would be released in February, although no specific date was provided. And in that same tweet, just a few sentences after announcing the big launch window, the company also confirmed that the game will be permanently shut down on May 31. This is the same day. LLSIF2ML is Also closing in Japan. But there he will have existed for about a year before the Grim Reaper arrives in search of his digital soul.
Reaction to the news was divided between frustration and confusion. Many people wondered why the company behind this upcoming sequel was still planning to release it in such a short time. Even stranger, the game will still support microtransactions, so you can invest your money in a game that will be gone in a few months. Why would anyone do that? I don’t know.
On the one hand, this is very strange and frustrating for fans who waited months to play this game. On the other hand, it is very efficient for game companies to start announcing release dates and closing dates in a tweet. Saves us all some time..
