The Nintendo online game selection database no longer includes "seventh generation" Wii or DS software.
Wii Shop Channel
Nintendo Wii Shop Channel - gateway to the Virtual Console and Wii Ware indies - Wii salute you!
Time's up! While you can still buy and download items, the window to add funds to Wii Shop Channel or redeem Wii Points cards has now passed.
You need Wii Points to buy games on the Virtual Console or WiiWare - but that Nintendo currency will vanish long before the Wii Shop Channel closes next year.
Nintendo has another batch of Wii U games coming to Switch. This is a good thing.
The Wii’s groundbreaking Virtual Console is home to around 200 classic games, many of which are currently not available anywhere else.
With a little planning, the Wii Virtual Console can still help fill those holes in your gaming library, even as the Wii Shop Channel prepares to shut down.
The Wii Shop Channel will shut down forever in early 2019, Nintendo says.
