Nintendo Wii Shop channel to close January 31st 2019

Nintendo has announced that the Wii Shop Channel will close down on January 21st, 2019.

You’ll still be able to purchase games and add credit right up until Tuesday, March 27th, 2018.

The Wii Shop channel was launched alongside the Wii on November 19, 2006, so when it closes the Wii Shop Channel will be 12 years, 2 months, 12 days old.

This means access to WiiWare and Wii Virtual Console games will no longer be available after this date, you’ll want to make sure you have everything downloaded to your Wii or Wii U before this date.

RIP Wii Shop channel music.
