    Or buy it now, and be able to download it in the future. Isn't that how it works with de-listed games one's purchased before said de-listing occurs? Like, I can still install MK9 to my PC in spite of it being de-listed on Steam.

    Another good reason for me to don't like digital only games. (Yes, I know it was released as a physical game, actually I own a copy of it).

    Wow! That's sad news. That's why I never trust digital from shop on any consoles like Nintendo, Sony, etc. Physical copies of games are solid and not to worry about future when company kill servers off that affect digital only. We learn that digital games are trash means we can't get our digital games back. Avoid digital now and in the future. Digital is true death means can't come back again anymore. RIP digital.

    We can resell our physical copies of games to young people to make money when we finish beat all games before we get older (health problems come up later).

    I'm old school game fans always stick with physical copies of games only. I glad with my non-digital games on my all Nintendo and PS4. :)

    In a perfect world, physical copies would still be the standard. With the full, complete package. No Day 1 patch, adding in, like, 20+ characters/stages/optional story content via DLC, etc..

    Unfortunately, the world you and I inhabit is imperfect.

    This is the real issue with games as a service. I can go along with not owning what you have bought, only owning a license to access, but only if I can actually use that license.

    There'll be differing opinions, but I feel if a product is sold with online as a big contributing factor to the experience, contingencies should be made to allow customers to continue using this.

    On the 3DS the course upload was never possible anyway and the bookmark website didn't exist there either.

    If I'm not mistaken, there are already homebrew tools that allow you to download courses independently of Nintendo's servers.

    Well more less ... but I cant imagine this is really hurting them in keeping it available.They just dont seem to want to ... which is a damn right shame.

    If you bought it digitally you can still redownload the game if you need to. They just aren't going to allow anyone new to purchase digitally

    The 3DS version doesn't have online servers. All you can do is make levels and trade with people locally in the same room as you

    I wouldn't be too worried about it being delisted if you bought it digitally. tickets remain on the system, even if you format it. I checked with NUS with wii content. the content is still there to download, but downloading the ticket causes a 404 error, so as long as you bought it beforehand, you should be okay. I don't know what to do if your system dies or something though. then, it could be a problem unless Nintendo can transfer over content ownership.

    Funny how servers for xbox live games are still up , way way older as compared to mario maker. I still don't get why everyone keeps defending Nintendo so much when they're basically the most anti consumer out of all 3

    Remember that the WiiU is the same gen as PS4/XBOX1? Remember when Nintendo also shut down the whole Wii shop permanently? Remember that PS3/360 digital storefronts are still online to this day? Nintendo makes so much profit yet screw their customers on a daily basis so hard. I modded my 3ds but still bought games for it. I got no regrets going full pirate on switch!

    Well on the bright side, it lasted longer than Mario 3D All Stars (assuming Nintendo was actually serious about it, which I doubt). I probably should play the game again on my Wii U but I am still trying to justify that I bought Mario Maker 2 a few days ago.

    You may want to hack your Wii U then.

    Retroarch can turn the Wii U into a machine that can run q whole lot of games from older machines.

    Same old song. This is the problem with games that rely on servers.

    its delisted, not removed, meaning you'll still be able to download the game if previously purchased, buying physical makes no difference here as online is shut down no matter what
