Nintendo announces the closure of one of its mobile games | Digital Trends Spanish

Nintendo announced that Dr. Mario World It will be closed on November 1, 2021, after just over two years since its launch. And from the moment of announcing the closure, it is no longer possible to make new purchases of items for the game.

Likewise, when the indicated date arrives, it will no longer be possible to continue playing. Dr. Mario World, Although Nintendo ensures that the game history can be reviewed on a special page that will be made available once the game servers are disconnected.

The reasons for the end of the game were not made official, but everything indicates that it is the least played and lucrative title of all that Nintendo launched on mobile phones in recent years. A study of Sensor Tower revealed that, six months after its premiere in July 2019, Dr. Mario World it was last on the list having generated just $ 4.8 million, less than one percent of total earnings.

However, Fire emblem heroes had generated more than $ 650 million to date, while Super Mario Run –game that is not free, but must be bought – it made $ 76 million.
