 Nintendo Will Shutter The Wii U And 3DS eShops In 2023

Nintendo does mention that even after the eShop goes defunct in March 2023, “and for the foreseeable future,” users will be able to redownload the games that they have already purchased and even get DLCs to games as well as software updates to the Nintendo Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS family of consoles. The company also claims that online play will continue to function until further notice.

While the shutdown was expected, it does limit many fans who have been holding on to classic titles. In this regard, eagle-eyed Kotaku managed to capture an FAQ about the availability of classic titles and Nintendo’s “obligation” to keep these titles alive on older platforms.

The response to this question said, “over 130 classic games are currently available in growing libraries for various legacy systems” through Nintendo Switch Online memberships. The response continued saying that Nintendo currently has “no plans to offer classic content in other ways.”

Nintendo’s plans to make consumers pay subscriptions just to be able to retain classic games may not sit right with many. But what’s worse is that the part about its “obligation to preserve” these classic games has since been removed from the FAQ section under the blog post. Whether that means Nintendo has backtracked on its plans to limit patrons to a subscription model or if it has plans to offer some other alternative is something we will learn in the coming months.
