    Its because they are removing features from the game. In a good few countries it becomes illegal to remove features and still sell the game. The 3ds version doesn't have anything removed from it that it had when it first came out. Remember that Sony got sued by a number of people when they removed the ability to install Linux on the PS3 many years ago.

    Mario Maker 2 is much better, but it woulda been nice if there was some kind of upgrade path to migrate original Mario Maker account stuff into Mario Maker 2 accounts... Also the costumes and event courses... too bad they werent still available in 2 somehow..

    ahh, I'm not to in touch with non us legal stuff so I guess fair point. on one hand they could repackage/brand it as being what it will be after the service goes down of just being a super mario player...basically what the 3ds game is...on the other hand that would actually involve some level of effort for a dead system

    I see you Nintendo, slowly removing all the evidence that the Wii U ever existed.

    Okay. I'd rather they offer some sort of alternative instead of saying "sorry, you're SOL"... But, this isn't a surprise move. With MM2 on their newest hardware, you really should have seen this coming. I feel they're trying to get people to shift into the Switch rather than stay on the WiiU.

    It's the end of the financial year so I guess it's something to do with that.

    simple, you just play them...why won't people read that the levels that are still on the servers will remain available to play after the disable uploading of levels and the book mark page

    I don't think people get that the whole online service isn't going down? It's essentially just going read-only. Which, for a game on a dead system, doesn't seem like the end of the world. I can't imagine many people are still uploading courses. In which regard, the 3DS version should be fine too.

    now watch them attack custom servers (that only results cause official goes offline) i know nothing last forever but attacking custom servers would be the final nail in nintendo's coffin (btw thought there was a dmca provision protecting custom servers if a) no copyrighted code is used and b) the official servers go offline

    I really don't want to hate Nintendo. But they still someone do it, they manage.

    3D All Stars might be "time exclusive" but Nintendo has history with "time exclusive" digital content - just like with Lost Levels on Wii, they'll no-doubt make it available again in the future, with no explanation whatsoever. Even if they don't, I'm sure the three games will be available separately.

    Imo 3D All Stars is a BS release because it only includes 3 of the 4 games it should include.

    Buying it digital or physical doesn't change anything. If you bought it digital, you still can download the game even if it's unlisted.

    Don't worry, I did.
    I hope u are aware, that Nintendo is always keeping only a few levels online at the same time?
    Mine for example always got deleated after a few month. That was a fact from the very beginning.
    Also still the online functionality is taken away, even if there's still 10000 levels "frozen" in the cloud. That's not the point. Especially not in general.

    What are you all over reacting for? are you all really uploading courses actively still despite the player base for the game being dead?
