Nintendo specified the closing date of the eShop digital store for Wii U and 3DS

Japan's publisher and developer Nintendo disclosed the exact date of the end of the sale of games and other products at the Nintendo eShop digital store for Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS consoles.

It was announced in February that the eShop would soon not be able to shop for Wii U and 3DS, but the specific day of deactivation had not been discovered until recently: the platform holder was limited.

It is known that this will happen on March 27, 2023. On the scheduled date, users will not be able to purchase on Nintendo eShop a fee-paying content for Wii U and 3DS and download free content.

What Nintendo users Wii U and 3DS will have after March 27, 2023, is an option to reload games and download content, receive software updates and play online.

Finally, Nintendo thanked the community for supporting Nintendo eShop for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, and invited gamers to a special page with game statistics on these platforms.
