Reminder regarding the Wii Shop Channel closure


16/03/2018

As previously announced, in 2019, we plan to close the Wii Shop Channel on Wii and Wii U, which has been available since December 2006.

In preparation for the closure of the Wii Shop Channel, we would like to remind consumers of the following points:

  • It will no longer be possible to add Nintendo Points with either a credit card, a Nintendo Points Card or a Nintendo eShop Card after 20:59 UK time on 26th March 2018. If you’d like to purchase Nintendo Points or redeem a Nintendo Points Card or Nintendo eShop Card, please do so before this time.
  • It will no longer be possible to purchase WiiWare, Virtual Console software and Wii Channels (including free software)* in the Wii Shop from 05:59 UK time on 31st January 2019.

For more information, please see here.

*With some exceptions, it is possible to re-download previously downloaded WiiWare, Virtual Console and Wii Channel software until further notice.
