Wii Shop Channel closing on Jan 31, 2019

Post by chaoadventures » Sun Oct 01, 2017 9:53 am

Yes, they're really taking it down. This time it's actually them closing it, and not the consequences of outsourcing of their online services.

You won't be able to add points anymore March 26th, 2018.

This is relevant if you want some of the few actually worthwhile WiiWare games on the channel (Mega Man 9 + 10), VC exclusives (Pulseman), or just something that's there and easy to get your hands
on right now (there's an official translation of Monster World 4 on there).

Top priority is probably games like Pulseman, but I can't think of any others.

Shucks, Dolphin just incorporated it too.
Anyway, I think we can all agree that My Pokémon Ranch is the most worthwhile Wiiware title.

It'd be better if it didn't have that stupid restriction where only the save that deposited a Pokemon can withdraw it and if the international versions got the Platinum update, but it's definitely convenient for storing excess Pokemon from DP and getting a Mew.

At least they gave us a year and a bit to get some games, that's nice of them.

It's sad to see services from the last gen finally shut, DS wifi shut off three years ago, and Xbox Live Indies shut off around a week and a half ago.
