Nintendo extends deadline for redeeming 3DS and Wii U eShop codes
Posted on 3 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in 3DS eShop, News, Wii U eShop | 0 comments
The 3DS and Wii U eShops are no longer allowing purchases or downloads of free items like demos, but it turns out that you can actually still redeem codes on both stores following a deadline extension.
This feature was originally intended to end alongside the normal shutdown time of the stores. However, due to a mistake, Nintendo actually ended things a few hours early. Some users who were looking to redeem some last-minute codes were unable to do so, and were obviously unhappy about the situation.

That’s officially a wrap on the 3DS and Wii U eShops – both stores are now closed for business. The two shops have been updated so that purchasing content is no longer possible. Also, if you were hoping to download free content like demos, you’ll be out of luck as well.
When Nintendo announced the closure of the 3DS and Wii U eShops, the company merely stated: “This is part of the natural lifecycle for any product line as it becomes less used by consumers over time.” It did not provide any other explanations about the decision to end purchases and free downloads.

20 3DS JRPGs to grab before the eShop closes
Posted on 1 week ago by Tom in 3DS, 3DS eShop, Features, Videos | 0 comments
With only a few days remaining before the day the eShop closes its doors on the 3DS, I wanted to make a video to help folks make a choice on what to grab before the final curtain call.
I decided to tailor my list to the thing I most cherished about the system, its catalogue of Japanese role-playing games. It was with the 3DS that I fell in love with the genre as it became a haven for some of the most generous, polished, classic titles in the genre.
