Nintendo Badge Arcade pushed out its last update today. The app was two-and-a-half years old.

A free download on Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Badge Arcade gave players a new way to decorate their system’s home menu. The arcade’s crane game had a slew of badges based on Nintendo franchises to collect that would update on a weekly basis.

Nintendo fans appreciated the various, well-designed badges, which required buying game credits to win. But it was the game’s host, the Arcade Bunny, who left the strongest impression. Players will remember him for his pink, smiling face, wit and inquisitive nature.

In honor of Badge Arcade’s final update, the Arcade Bunny pulled back the curtain on the staff that helped him run the show.

The Arcade Bunny and the new badges will be dearly missed. Badge Arcade remains available to download and play on 3DS, but completionists who have milked this game for all its worth must now put it out to pasture.
