Nintendo To Permanently Close Down it’s Wi-Fi Connection Services

Nintendo has declared that it is going to terminate its Nintendo Wi-Fi connection services worldwide within a few months.

This means certain online services across the Nintendo DS, DSi and Wii consoles will now not be there after May 20, including online play, leader boards and match making. The closure, set to take place on May 20 will have an effect on all regions.

While Wii U and 3DS software won’t be affected due to their use of the Nintendo Network, Wii games accessed via Wii Mode on the Wii U will lose their online features following the termination.

Some on-line options, listed below, will still be out there:

-Internet Channel
-Nintendo DS Browser
-Nintendo DSi Browser
-Nintendo DSi Shop
-Nintendo Wi-Fi connection Pay & Play
-Wii shop Channel
-YouTube

A full list of affected titles and features can be looked up on the Nintendo website.
