Capcom Shutting Puzzle Fighter Down Less Than Six Months After Launch

Dead Rising 4 Safe House Keys

Puzzle Fighter Will Be Removed From App Stores, Servers Shut Down This July

The publisher announced that it will remove the puzzle game from app stores on July 1, while the option to spend money on in-app purchases will be disabled on April 23. Players will still be able to play until that date, and Capcom just gifted all participants with 10,000 in-game gems, so go wild until then!

"As the studio is dedicating its focus to our flagship Dead Rising franchise, we have chose to sunset Puzzle Fighter", Capcom explained in a post on the Capcom Unity blog.

Capcom is shutting down its tile-matching multiplayer mobile game Puzzle Fighter.

Segovia is scheduled to appear for a hearing before 185th District Court Judge Susan Brown on Tuesday. Precinct 7 officers found Segovia trying to drag her 9-year-old toward a bayou, investigators said.

In a recent blog post, Capcom revealed the closure of one of its mobile games called Puzzle Fighter.

Later today the game's soundtrack will also be available to stream online for free via SoundCloud. What is sad, however, is that the game launched in November 2017. It allowed players to play as iconic characters like Ryu, Ken, E. Honda and Chun-Li from Street Fighter, X from Mega Man, Morrigan from Darkstalkers, Frank West from Dead Rising, Mike Haggar from Final Fight and Jill from Resident Evil.

Friday's announcement also didn't reference the fact that this game's reboot recently received PEGI ratings (Europe's equivalent of the ESRB) for PC and consoles. You just have to look at the scores of zombie-slaughtering games that are now in development, like OverKill's The Walking Dead and Saber Interactive's World War Z, to name but a few. In the meantime, feel free to head on down to the comments section and let us know if you're interested in seeing another outing from the franchise.
