Nintendo has announced that they will be ending a service that launched two console generations prior to Switch, the Wii Shop Channel on Thursday, January 31st, 2019 at 2:59 p.m. Japan Standard Time. Furthermore, in 2018 the ability to add points to your balance will come to a halt on Tuesday, March 27th at 4:59 a.m. The Wii was Nintendo’s first console to introduce a dedicated program of replaying classic games across many past consoles, both their own and other companies, known as Virtual Console. Newly developed digital download games belonged to the service WiiWare. Be sure to stock up on enough points before the deadline to purchase titles you’ve missed out on.
