Nintendo has announced that mobile version of Nintendo’s puzzle game Dr. Mario World released in 2019, will be unplayable after November 1, 2021. Dr. Mario World’s official website has announced the news. Nintendo announced that the service for the Dr. Mario World game will end on November 1, 2021. Having begun operating the game in 2019, the company applauded the players for their efforts.

In addition to the closure of Miitomo, Nintendo is also shutting down the game that launched a little over two years ago. Back in May 2018, Nintendo first mobile app Miitomo was shut down, Nintendo has now shuttered Dr. Mario World, which was Mario’s second app to be shut down.

The video game company also confirmed that Diamonds, the game’s virtual currency, which are currently purchased through the app store for real money, “will no longer be sold” starting July 28, 2021.

The game was developed by Nintendo in collaboration with Line, one of Japan’s most popular mobile messaging applications. In a little more than two years, it was launched on July 10th, 2019. Despite the ending of the service, Nintendo will keep a legacy for Dr. Mario World Memories, a web page featuring all the memories of the game once it ends.

Early in 2020, Nintendo launched Mario Kart Tour, another mobile game with multiplayer capabilities. Reports indicate that 200 million copies of that title were downloaded, and that its publisher saw relatively high earnings due to it. Nintendo hasn’t given a reason for shutting down Dr. Mario World, but a SensorTower report from early 2020 said it wasn’t doing as well as compared to other titles.

Nintendo has continued to expand its mobile game portfolio since the release of Dr. Mario World in July 2019. In September 2019, Nintendo released Mario Kart Tour for mobile devices, a mobile take on the Mario Kart series. It has seemed to be more successful than Dr. Mario World. Reports indicate that in April 2021, the racing app had surpassed 200 million downloads as well as generated $200 million in lifetime revenue.
