SINoAlice has been working on starting from the end of the year, where we plan to release this game on July 18, 2021.
As the opening ladder draws near, we’ve done a final maintenance and double-checked the global server. However, we are forced to conclude that the quality of the localization of SINoAlice is far from perfect at the development stage.
In this case, we had a lot of discussions with the developer team from Japan and as a result we had to reschedule the release on a large scale. We decided to maximize the localization of this game to provide high satisfaction from the players.
Due to this schedule being pushed back, we are aware that many have been disappointed, and we sincerely apologize for the sudden announcement.
With hype As high as the global version of SINoAlice, our priority is to provide an experience that exceeds expectations. We hope you all understand the difficult decision we made by delaying the global release of the game.

Your interest is high regarding the release charts, we will try our best to bring to all of you the localized version of SINoAlice as soon as possible.
Furthermore, the compensation reward for this delay is being discussed. We will immediately notify you of the announcement of the global version release ladder and compensation in detail one day.
Once again, we sincerely apologize to all of you who have given your love and care to SINoAlice.
