The five titles in the Anne’s Doll Studio (Atelier Deco la Doll) series were initially delisted from the Nintendo DSi Shop on March 31st, 2017 when the marketplace was shut down on that platform. The games were then delisted from the Nintendo 3DS eShop in Europe and North America no later than Late 2020. This is when a reader of the site first noticed that they were no longer available although they could have been delisted earlier.
The content from these five games was later compiled in the Nintendo 3DS title Doll Fashion Atelier (Atelier Deco la Doll Collection), released in 2015 (JP) and 2016 (EU, NA). A retail version of the game was also released in Japan. The five individual titles and their regional release dates follow:
|Title||JP Release||EU, NA Release|
|Tokyo Collection (Pretty)||December 2009||April 2012 (NA)|
|Gothic Collection||April 2010||January 2012 (NA)|
|Lolita Collection (Victorian)||December 2010||June 2014 (EU, NA)|
|Princess Collection||April 2011||June 2014 (EU, NA)|
|Antique Collection||December 2012||June 2014 (EU, NA)|
As all of the titles remain available in Japan, where the developer Starfish also served as publisher, the delistings in the West are most likely related to publisher Gamebridge. The compilation title, Doll Fashion Atelier, is published in the West by Teyon.
