    Sounds like DSiWare the games will still be safe to buy from 3DS at least

    Why would Nintendo shut down something they can still make money from? I’d hate to see the 3DS eShop get shut down in a few years before I have enough $$$ to buy everything on it 😛

      Because 1. DSi has been out since 2009 so it isn’t “a few years” 2. Some of the software you can pretty much get on the 3DS anyway.

    What was even on there? All I remember are clock apps for 3€ (not even kidding)…

    Well shoot, I better use up my DSi Point cards I have laying around.

    I thought they already have closed it. Does it mean that DSi Shop is still available from DSi and if i get one i will be able to buy Shantae and other?

      Yeah, DSiWare will still be available through a DSi up until the end of next march although you wont be able to add money starting in October.

    Every DSi game is on the eShop of the 3DS, so no big deal.

      Except Four Swords

        Four Swords is on the 3DS. They gave it out for free for a limited time.
