More on Madoka Magica
Meanwhile, you have the spinoff game Magia Record still ongoing on mobile in Japan. The game was first launched in Japan in August 2017. It was later released in USA on June 25, 2019 but ended up unceremoniously closing on September 28, 2020. This most notably triggered angry responses from fans who spent money to buy gems in-game, as the shut down announcement was made right after a big event.
The game is still pretty popular in Japan. A season 2 for its anime adaptation is coming soon.
