Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service for Nintendo DS and Wii to end in May -Nintendo.com (http://www.nintendo.com/whatsnew/detail/vyWpoM6CBIe6FjW8NIY7bvzOrgBURhzw)

MotoHeroz is not mentioned on compelete list of games losing online.
Or did they forget to put MotoHeroz on the list?

Hi Moto, thanks for letting us know about this. I will find out and get an update here when I learn more.

I'm still waiting for more info.

In the meanwhile. I tried today Motoheroz time trials and the game said "Could not connect to game server. Please try again later"

Nevermind, that was just a temporary glitch, it's working again.

I don't think a confirmation is required about MotoHeroz time trials' fate. When choosing Online in the main menu, the game states clearly:
Connecting to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection...
Please wait a moment...
Nintendo just forgot to put MotoHeroz to their death list.

I'll play MotoHeroz time trials until the server gets exploded. :p

By the way. I received a copy of Sinivalkoinen pelikirja book, which tells about history of Finnish video games. MotoHeroz was mentioned in the book and was praised.

:) I'm pleasantly surprised that MotoHeroz time trials is still working! I checked Smash Bros also and it had gone offline.
Only explanation is that MotoHeroz is running from Red Lynx' own server, that doesn't need Nintendo Wi-Fi.

That's correct. The game server is running on our own hardware and currently there are no plans to discontinue hosting the game.

Hi. I noticed that the MotoHeroz server is down when I tried it today from my Wii.

I'm hoping that this is temporary - maybe something to do with the pandemic - but expecting that after all these years it's perhaps permanent.

Can anybody confirm the status of the MotoHeroz server?

Thanks and I wish you all well.
