Bandai Namco has decided to shutting down the services worldwide for Digimon Links, the turn-based 3v3 “Digimon Training Battle” smartphone game on July 30, 2019. Sales of its micro-transaction DigiStones already ended in the English version but will remain available in Japan until June 27, 2019.
The game first released in Japan as Digimon Linkz in March 2016, followed by a worldwide release on October 2017.
Here’s a message from the English version of the game:
