Wii Shop Channel will not add Wii Points to accounts from March, ahead of 2019 closure

Nintendo service entering twilight year

Nintendo have announced that the Wii Shop Channel will cease to be on January 31 2019.

As of March 27 2018, users will no longer be able to add Wii Points to their account, ahead of the channel's eventual shut down at the start of the following year.

Previously purchased WiiWare and Virtual Console titles will remain re-downloadable, and the Wii-to-WiiU transfer software will still be functional. This is only temporary however, as the ability to re-download purchased content will stop at an undisclosed future date. When that happens, removing WiiWare and VC content from your console will delete it permanently.
