Square Enix’s Free-To-Play PS Vita Game Deadman’s Cross Ending Service on September 30, 2015

Released this past February on PlayStation Vita, free-to-play zombie card battle RPG Deadman’s Cross will be going offline on September 30 at 12am PT/3am ET/7am GMT.

Here’s what the development team had to say about the shutdown:

Thank you for playing Deadman’s Cross (PlayStation Vita version).

After careful consideration, service for the PlayStation Vita version of Deadman’s Cross will come to an end on Sept. 30, 2015. As the Deadman’s Cross dev team and staff, we would like to express our deepest gratitude for your patronage of our game.

The smartphone version of Deadman’s Cross continues to enjoy popularity, and service will continue for that version. Since it is possible to transfer the save data from your PlayStation Vita version over to the smartphone version, it is our hope that you will continue to enjoy playing Deadman’s Cross, this time on a smartphone. Therefore, in appreciation of our PlayStation Vita version players, we have prepared a Migrate to Smartphone Version Campaign.

If you’re looking to transfer your data from PlayStation Vita to the smartphone version, you need to have played Deadman’s Cross before July 30, 2015, and must follow these steps:

  1. Press the “Date Transfer” button on the lower part of the “Info” screen in-game.
  2. Enter a password of your choosing in the Password field, and set the password.
  3. Activate the smartphone you wish to migrate the save data to, and select “Trabsfer Gane Data”.
  4. Enter your player name and password, and start the game.

Deadman’s Coins can’t be carried over, so Square Enix says, “Please be sure to check for any unused coins in your PlayStation Vita version account before migrating your data.”

Once the migration is complete and your start of gameplay on the smartphone version is confirmed, Square Enix will send you some bonus items (Elite Hunt Permit x 10, Energy Drink x 10) the following week.
