"Effectively killing the series" he says.

That's pretty click baity. This writer is extremely presumptuous.
The worst monsters are human.

Glad I decided not to bother with this.  Make an actual game or sell the franchise and go away, Konami.

The guy seemed to have missed the memo that the franchise has been practically dead since 2009. If anything, this is the final nail in the coffin.

They should just work on a  full-fledged new game. Using mobile games like this as a litmus test for interest in the franchise won't get them anywhere.

I agree. I’m happy for the last true ‘nail’ to have been Ecclesia, because it’s still the apex of the series in my heart.

Well that sucks, and is stupid. Another cancelled game to throw on the pile. Ugh.

DAMN I spent at least 30 hours on it and I really wanted to see where they were heading with the story. There are so many questions left unanswered...
I found the game enjoyable (with mouse + keyboard), especially when I was one-shotting bosses with Simon's Red Scorpion.
On the other hand certain lore bits and mechanics were meh but I liked how the game gave life back to the original continuity. Now I really wonder what's in konami's mind with this decision

Can't say as I'm surprised by all this.
But then again, I'm a crotchety old bastard with faith left for that company.
I hope they sell the rights.
