Last chance to purchase games on the DSi Shop

Posted on March 26, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in DSiWare, News

The DSi Shop’s end is further coming to a close. On March 31, the ability to purchase content on the store will end.

Nintendo already closed off the ability to add DSi Points at the end of last September. You’ll be unable to re-download DSiWare games at some point, but Nintendo hasn’t said when.

    good glad to see Nintendo is taking the 1st steps to end the 3DS line….

    • TheGoomba

      The DSi isn’t the 3DS.

    • Will Harvey

      The DS line came out 7 years before the 3DS. It’s gonna be a long time before we see that online service shut down.

    Can you still buy DSiware on the 3DS eShop?

    • Fatalframe4

      Yes. Any DSiWare games on the 3DS eShop won’t be affected. Just the DSi Shop on the DSi.

      • Jimmy Boy

        DSiWare is the DSi Shop on the 3DS, same software

    • TruExtent

      Yes, but there’s a few games/apps that aren’t on 3DS. For whatever reason, I wasn’t allowed to transfer Asphalt 4 or the original Flipnote Studio.

    • ibo

      • Roto Prime

        It has been a long time, they where making pop island for the 3DS…but I guess they canceled it ;____;

    WOW! I completely forgot it existed! Anyone know if the Wii Shop Channel will follow soon after?

    • Vinicius

      As of now, there is no date for the Wii Store to close.

  • Any noteworthy games I should get on the DSi I only have that weird fighting game where you take pictures of yourself and Shantae.

    • Fatalframe4

      Depends. How much DSi Points do you have left?

  • Josh Warren

    All I buy are physical copies, so that’s ok. Physical copies hold value, downloads don’t.

    • Mihael Keehl

      k.

    • Will Harvey

      Some DSiWare games were never available on cartridge

    FYI for those of you looking here: Below is the list of DSiWare games and apps that are non transferable to 3DS. If you have any points left to spend, consider these titles as this might be the last chance you can get them. Via http://en-americas-support.nintendo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/438/p/430 :

    This sort of thing is why piracy will always have a reason to exist. Seeing works of art going to waste for financial reasons is too sad.
