Mario purge day is coming, and now to add to the list of things getting taken down at the end of this month, we’ve got Disney Art Academy, which will be discontinued on 30th March.
Nintendo’s Japanese customer support shared this information on Twitter. Any user who has access to a digital copy will still be able to download the title from the 3DS eShop after this date. Here’s the Google translation of the below tweet:
“The download version of the Nintendo 3DS software “Disney Art Academy” will be discontinued on March 30, 2021 (Tuesday) at 23:59.”
This appears to apply to other regions as well – with the game page in the UK displaying the following message:
“From 23:59 (UK time) on 30th March, 2021, Disney Art Academy for Nintendo 3DS family systems will no longer be available on Nintendo eShop.”
Mickey’s departure on 30th March lines up with Mario’s own increasingly depressing day. As noted in our previous post, Super Mario 3D All-Stars will be pulled at the end of this month alongside Super Mario Bros. 35 and the Super Mario Game & Watch.
In addition to this, Netflix is removing an old Super Mario Bros. 3 cartoon series, Nintendo’s original Super Mario Maker online services are shutting down, and other games like Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light will no longer be available to purchase.
Nintendo of America also issued a reminder earlier before to grab the Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection before it’s gone.
