Do you remember how you played this game when growing up, Dr. Mario, a mobile take on the puzzle game series? It was everyone’s favorite game. Unfortunately, it is shutting down.
Nintendo has announced that Dr. Mario World, will go out of service on November 1st, with sales of its in-app “diamond” currency ended yesterday, July 28, 2021.
The company announced that “Thank you for your continued patronage of “Dr. Mario World”.
We are pleased to announce that the service of “Dr. Mario World” will be terminated on November 1, 2021 (Monday).”
The game was launched a little over two years ago and is the first of Nintendo’s mobile games to be shut down.
According to report, Dr. Mario World was by far the worst-performing Nintendo smartphone game in terms of revenue performance. That includes Super Mario Run, whose disappointing sales prompted Nintendo to pursue freemium models in the first place. Fire Emblem Heroes remains the company’s biggest mobile hit by a huge distance, generating more revenue than its other games combined.
You’ll no longer be able to play the game after the service end as a screen notifying you that the service has ended will be displayed.
