It has already been two years since programming education became compulsory in elementary schools.
Since it is a subject that is difficult to teach at home, programming classes for children have been held in various places, and the number of places where children can learn programming outside of school has been increasing.
In particular, "games" are a good match for children's interests, and it is well known that " REDEE, " one of Japan's largest digital education facilities in Suita City, Osaka Prefecture, also offers a game-based curriculum.
In fact, many game titles with programming as the theme have been released, and parents can learn programming while playing games at home, which is a win-win situation because parents can relax and children can play games with the excuse of learning programming.
Various manufacturers are now releasing programming games, and one of the pioneers is " Solomon Program, " which was released by Konami in February 2021.
The "Solomon Program" has been played by a wide range of people, not only children, because it is free to play, but it has been announced that the online service will end in 2022.
Offline play is still possible even though the online service will end!
It has been announced that the "Solomon Program" online service will end on December 31, 2022 (Sat.) at 23:59.
Along with the announcement, the sale of "roulette chips" will also end on June 30, 2022 (Thursday ).
Since the online service will end, "Instant Roulette" and "Tag Battle" will no longer be available, and "Hack Battle" and "Password Match" will no longer be playable.
Roulette chips will no longer be available and will not be refunded, so be sure to use them up before the online service ends.
Although the online service is ending You can continue to play offline! The online service will end, but the starter (free) and booster (paid) games will still be available after January 1, 2023.
The " Solomon Program" is not over yet, as there are still days left until the end of the online service, with the " Coded Destiny " story mode scheduled to be added in July 2022.
If you are new to the "Solomon Program", download the free starter from the My Nintendo Store or the Nintendo eShop on your Nintendo Switch and play!
Konami recently announced that the "Super Bomberman R Online" service will end on December 1, 2021 (Thursday ), making this the second announcement in a row.
Since Bomberman has been working on a new project, we believe that the termination of the "Solomon Program" online service is also in preparation for a new project, so we will be keeping an eye on the future developments!
Please check the official website of the "Solomon Program" for more information about the process of service termination.
