One of the most common realities in the mobile gaming market is its very striking volatility.
This is especially in a space like Japan, where you often see a rotation of entrances and exits of games based on current anime, which do not last too long. This is the case of BOFURI and its game Line Wars.
Officially known by his full name, Itai no wa Iya nano from Bōgyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu. ~ Line Wars ~ is the mobile game adaptation of the story of Maple and his friends in the VRMMO New World Online.
A very nice game that is ideal for fans of this work, but that, with the passage of time, could not offer more content to stay current in this competitive market. Besides having no more anime seasons or productions in the future to draw from, it was a matter of time before the inevitable happened.
This Friday, July 23, it was announced that Line Wars will definitively close its service on September 21, with a period of time so that fans who invested in the internal currency of the game can have a fine profit before its final closure.
Written by Yuumikan with illustrations by Koin, the light novel that wraps an Isekai with everyday events, BOFURI, has been owned by Kadokawa Books since September 2017.
To date the work has 9 compilation volumes of which the anime has adapted from 1 to 4, leaving space for its second edition to continue the original story from 5 to 9.
In the story, Kaede is an ordinary high school girl who tries out a VRMMO video game, New World Online, for the first time at the request of her best friend, Risa Shironine.
Because Kaede does not want to feel pain, she forges a completely tangy character by leaving all her points in vitality, an unusual strategy that will unknowingly make her one of the most powerful players in the game.
Last year a new season of BOFURI was scheduled to premiere, but delays in the industry took its production as a victim.
