After launching in June 2019 for mobiles, Nintendo’s Dr. Mario World will be ending its service on November 1st, 6 AM UTC. The recent notice revealed that diamonds, the game’s premium currency, would be unavailable to purchase from today onwards. Once the service has ended, players will receive a notification for the same in-game.
One can still look back on their playtime with Dr. Mario World Memories, a website that will go live after the service ends. Nintendo didn’t provide a reason for the game’s service ending but it may have to do with its overall revenue. Despite having two million downloads within 72 hours of launch, it only generated $100,000 in revenue.
Considering how successful the company’s other ventures have been – like Mario Kart Tour which had 20 million downloads and $1 million in revenue on its first day alone – the title’s end of service is understandable. What’s next for Nintendo’s mobile ventures? Stay tuned for any news and details in the coming months.
