Nintendo DSi Shop Closing in 2017

Post by Winters Thief Zero on Thu Mar 31, 2016 4:32 pm

Nintendo has announced that the Nintendo DSiWare shop will be closing in 2017. You can continue to add DSiWare points until September 30th, 2016, and use them to purchase DSiWare games until March 31st, 2017. You will also no longer be able to redownload these titles. However, they will all still be available on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, so those with a 3DS can continue to download them. Their reasoning for the closure is that people have shifted to 3DS and most no longer use the DSi.

I'm honestly surprised this didn't happen like a year or two ago. I'm not really disappointed at all, especially considering they're still available on 3DS.

I was never able to even load the shop and it could have been removed a few years ago since it had no exclusive games. I also think that the Wii shop channel will be closing in a few years once every game is available on the eShop.

They will probably close the Wii Shop Channel next. I wouldn't be very surprised to hear that announcement.

Unfortunate for any DSi owners but the 3DS eshop will always have everything that the DSi Shop had at least. That stuff can be transferred, right?

^ Yeah you can transfer them over to 3DS too. So really there's no complaints that could be had about this, it was bound to close eventually when barely any people are going to buy anything. I haven't seen a points card for Wii/DSi in years anyway. I don't think I've seen one since at least 2012, maybe early 2013.
