The Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile End of Service Announcement Is The Worst Holiday Gift!

Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile did not survive the holidays and has released an End of Service notice on their Twitter. Maybe the game didn’t behave and ended up on Santa’s naughty list hence this dampening announcement.

Chances are you can find more information on the game’s Official Website over the coming days which will likely announce the End of Service, plus detail further the reason. FMA is a great anime if you’re after recommendations, and perhaps after your watch, you’ll understand why this EoS is rather shocking!

The FMA fandom is alive and thriving, so how this game slipped under the radar and eventually fell to the EoS is bizarre. After the game’s launch, it felt like only a matter of time until a potential Global release…
