Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShops Will Be Discontinued In 2023

The Wii U and Nintendo 3DS eShops will be discontinued in “late March 2023,” Nintendo announced today, effectively closing off access to a host of content that can only be found on those platforms.

The shutdown will be a multi-stage process that will last through 2022 and until 2023. The specific dates are as follows:

May 23, 2022: It will no longer be possible to add funds using a credit card to a 3DS/Wii U eShop account.

August 29, 2022: It will no longer be possible to use an eShop card to add funds. However, it will still be possible to redeem download codes.

Late March 2023: It will no longer be possible to make purchases, download demos or themes, redeem a download code, or add funds.
