Japanese gaming product maker Nintendo has announced “end of service” for the Dr. Mario World game on iOS, as per a report by Apple Insider. The game will be unavailable on the iOS platform from November 1. Nintendo has also suspended the in-app purchases for the game.
Nintendo confirmed about discontinuing the game in a statement:”We would like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who has played the game. The Dr. Mario World game’s service will end on November 1, 2021 (Mon). Furthermore, diamonds will no longer be available for purchase from July 28, 2021 (Wed).”
The game has been on the App Store for over two years now. The company has not divulged the reason behind shutting down the game. It has said that if players start up the Dr. Mario World game after November 1, they will see an “end-of-service” message on the screen and won’t be able to gain access to the game. The player history however will be preserved in Dr. Mario World Memories, a web page that will be made available after the game service stops.
The report adds that “a portion” of the users’ player history will be saved and “referenced in Dr. Mario World Memories.” If someone doesn’t want to save their game history, they can expunge the saved data in the app.
