Nintendo has confirmed that it will be shutting down the Devil's Third multiplayer servers at the end of 2016 - a year after they went live.

The servers will shut on December 29th at 1PM local time in Japan. However, things are going to be winding down sooner than that; players will no longer be able to purchase Golden Eggs - in-game currency - from June 27th.

Nintendo has also revealed that it will be reducing the price of Devil's Third on the Japanese Wii U eShop from 7,236 Yen to 3,618 Yen from tomorrow.

All of this news relates to the Japanese version of the game, but we'd imagine that Nintendo will also be closing the western servers around the same time.
