Nintendo discontinues third mobile game

Nintendo is discontinuing another of its mobile titles, having announced that the service for Dragalia Lost will be ending sometime after the release of the final campaign chapter in July this year.

“Dragalia Lost’s main campaign is set to conclude in July 2022 with part two of Chapter 26, the final and culminating addition to its long-running story,” reads the official announcement. “After the conclusion of the main campaign, service for the game itself will be discontinued at a later date. More details on the end of service schedule will be provided in a future notification.”

Dragalia Lost was a new IP released specifically for mobile devices. It’s an action RPG set in the kingdom of Alberia, where humans and dragons once lived together. The game weaved elements of popular mobile games into its RPG systems, most notably with a gacha system. By 2020, the game had grossed $123 million, behind only Fire Emblem Heroes and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

Nintendo entered the mobile space in 2016 with the launch of Miitomo; a gamified social media app featuring Nintendo Mii characters. Prominent Nintendo franchises eventually made the jump to mobile, including Super Mario, Fire Emblem, Animal Crossing, Mario Kart, and Pikmin.

Miitomo was the first mobile game that Nintendo shut down, ending the service in 2018. Then, in 2020, reports surfaced that Nintendo was pulling out of mobile gaming. Since then, Nintendo has also introduced Dr. Mario World shut down, a match-three variant of the Dr. Mario puzzle formula.

It seems that Nintendo’s family-friendly side has been unhappy with the microtransaction side of mobile gaming. According to one report, Nintendo was more interested in using the mobile space to promote its core console business than as a primary source of cash flow.

In other Nintendo shutdown news recently, we learned that the Wii U and 3DS eShops will close in 2023. Before that happens, here are 100 Wii U and 3DS games worth buying before the stores close.
