Published 11/02/2021, 2:01 PM EDT


After approximately two years from the release on mobile, Nintendo has permanently discontinued Dr. Mario World’s game server. The company was not happy with the low number of in-app purchases and has been shut down on November 1, 2021. Now if you boot up the game, you’ll get the end of service notification. According to other reports, Nintendo is currently working on making a dedicated webpage for the game’s memories titled “Dr. Mario World Memories.”

Basically, this will allow players to look at all the beautiful memories they have of the game. The page will be available after the game’s end of service.

Few Nintendo mobile games were a huge hit. This includes Super Mario Run released way back in 2016, Emblem Hero released in 2017, and of course, how can we forget Pokemon GO (2016).

Pokemon GO was a great hit back then and recently surpassed the $5 billion revenue mark (approximately five years after the release). Now, Nintendo is trying its hands on other mobile games as well. Just a few months ago, Nintendo released Pokemon Unite that received decent reviews from players.

Back then, Nintendo released an official blog post to announce this news. The company wrote, “Thank you for playing the Dr. Mario World game,” Nintendo noted. “The Dr. Mario World game’s service will end on November 1, 2021 (Mon). We would like to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who has played the game since it began service on July 10, 2019.”
