Servers for the online portion of the Wii U title Devil’s Third are getting shut down later this year, Nintendo announced.

The official shutdown for the multiplayer feature of the game will officially occur on December 28th, 2016 despite the game only launching on December 11th, 2015 (on the Wii U platform).

However, even sooner than that comes the discontinuation of the selling of Golden Eggs in the game, which comes as soon as Monday, June 27th at 9:00 AM PT.

Additionally, the price of the downloadable version of the game is getting a price cut likely in preparation for the end of these services, jumping from $59.99 to $29.99 on the Nintendo eShop.

“We are deeply thankful for all the players who have enjoyed Devil’s Third online multiplayer service, and thank you for your understanding regarding this decision,” Nintendo wrote in the announcement.

There will be no changes to the online portions of the single-player mode, and while Golden Eggs will no longer be sold after next Monday, those that have already been purchased will be functional until December 28th, 2016.

Devil’s Third originally launched on Wii U last year and received almost universally negative reviews upon release with multiple sites criticizing the controls, graphics, and an inconsistent frame rate.
