Better update your Android device!

Super Mario Run will be updated to Version 3.0.14 on June 9th, 2019. This update will include bug fixes, but it also will remove from support for Android devices. From June 9th onward, only Android devices running operating system 4.4 and later will be supported.

Didn't the same happen to Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp?

Well, um... Android 4.4 is quite a few years old. I don't really see a problem here.

Yeah that’s what I was thinking. Anybody who still has 4.4 probably doesn’t use their phone for gaming.

I can imagine young kids who get the old phones of their parents and siblings, or people who simply cannot afford a new one. They're out of luck and that is unfortunate.
On the other hand, there are lots of smartphones on the market with current Android versions for less than a hundred dollars. Or maybe just used ones.

Oh well, I'm not judging. Not everyone has that privilege and I don't want to make them feel bad.

I get that. I dunno there’s lots of affordable phones that have much more recent versions of Android at a very reasonable price. Unfortunately you can’t expect an old phone to be able to run newer apps for forever. Plus, if a phone can’t be updated past 4.4, most likely that phone is at least 7+ years old. Phones have come such a long way. Can’t expect to support old hardware forever.

That's correct. Making sure an app works on older software requires resources as well, so I can't blame the publisher in this case.

Someone has to update Magikarp Run... I have not been able to play it in sometime... keeps crashing...
