Cygames announced that the Japanese version of World Flipper will have a major change to its development and operation structure going forward. From June 2023, game updates will not be as frequent as before, though it doesn’t mean that the game is ending service in no time.
Also, the main story of World Flipper will conclude in Chapter 12, which will be updated within this month. And the last story events will be updated on May 31.
The addition of characters and equipment items will continue, but character additions will be reduced to two to four per month starting in June, and character voices will be omitted from episodic conversations. As for the addition of equipment items through events, one item will be added every month or two.
Furthermore, other content such as the addition of new bosses, Boss Pickup Events, and Treasure Hunt Events will continue to be held in the future, with Haniwa Carnival and Senjin no Banquet after the next event. A rerun of the previous events will be held.
In addition, the developers have also detailed the campaigns that will be held to commemorate the 3.5th anniversary of the Japanese version of World Flipper, including free gacha pulls, the final story chapter, and more.
