Final Fantasy Record Keeper, Square Enix’s longest-lived Final Fantasy-themed gacha title, will be ending service for its global client on September 29, 2022. In an announcement posted in-game, the team shares that they are “incredibly thankful to have enjoyeed the support of so many of you over the almost seven and a half years.. We make this announcement with a heavy heart, but hope you will be left with fond memories of adventure once the journey comes to an end.
Developed in partnership with DeNa, Record Keeper puts you in the titular role, delving through “records” of key moments in the Final Fantasy franchise history. In doing so, the Record Keeper can recruit various characters from many titles, all represented by a unified 2D pixel aesthetic similar to Final Fantasy VI. Combat sequences were built on an Active Time Battle system, with abilities that could be deployed with a button press.
As the game approaches the end of service, it will no longer sell its premium currency called “Gems” as of August 30, but any Gems you’ve purchased previously will be retained until the official end of service on September 29.
