Wii Shop Closing Next Year, Complete Shutdown in 2019

The Wii is officially dead next year

By Grayshadow, Posted 30 Sep 2017

The Wii was one of Nintendo's most successful consoles and now its days are numbered, Nintendo has announced that the Wii Shop is closing down.


This should be expected as Nintendo has been moving towards the future with the Nintendo Switch and a new online system. On the Nintendo site, an official quote was given:

"You can still add Wii Points until March 26, 2018, and purchase content on the Wii Shop Channel until January 30, 2019. In the future, we will be closing all services related to the Wii Shop Channel, including redownloading purchased WiiWare, Virtual Console titles, and Wii Channel, as well as Wii System Transfer Tool, which transfers data from Wii to the Wii U system."

Nintendo has advised anyone with points to use them before the date above or risk losing everything.
