The DSi Shop is on its way out. As previously mentioned, users will be unable to add DSi Points after September 30, and you’ll be unable to purchase titles after March 31.

At least in Japan, Nintendo is going to be refunding unused points. Between April 3, 2017 and September 29, 2017, Nintendo will be offering customers three different options:

1. Convert to eShop balance for 3DS / Wii U
2. Transfer money to the user’s specified bank account
3. Receive cash from convenience stores like Lawson

It’s a ways off, but Nintendo has scheduled more shop maintenance for later in the month. The Wii U and 3DS eShops, Wii Shopping Channel, and DSi Shop will be affected.

Here’s when it’ll be taking place:

– 1 PM PT (September 12) – 7 PM PT (September 12)
– 4 PM ET (September 12) – 10 PM ET (September 12)
– 9 PM in the UK (September 12) – 3 AM in the UK (September 13)
– 10 PM in Europe (September 12) – 4 AM in Europe (September 13)
