It is developed by Capcom and has a number of playable characters in the application that have had appearances in fighting games.

The games-as-a-service graveyard grew one larger this week, as Capcom's Puzzle Fighter reboot received an official "sunset" announcement on Friday.

Capcom is shutting down its tile-matching multiplayer mobile game Puzzle Fighter. In a post on Capcom's blog, the company announced that they will be sunsetting the game come 31st of July. Regina and Dr. Wily can be downloaded today, while Ada Wong and the new stages, Darminor and Uroboros Laboratory, will be available on Monday, April 23. Unfortunately, this will render the game unplayable as it relies on being connected online due to the timers and loot boxes tied to the game. As an added apology on top of the 10,000 in-game gem currency all players will be receiving, upcoming characters Dr. Capcom's announcement did not in any way hint to a patch that would let the game work in a wholly offline mode, nor did it hint to any open-sourcing of its content so that dedicated players could, say, prop the game's bones up via DIY servers.

We appreciate the fans who have supported Puzzle Fighter until this point. In addition, the previous Classic Mode special limited event will be available at all times up until the server closure. If nothing else, maybe this news can go in the "good" column for Dead Rising fans, as it will now apparently receive the full attention of Studio Vancouver.
