Nintendo has restored most of the DSi games that were deactivated on the 3DS eShop
Update (1/9): The good news continues, as we’re now hearing reports that almost all of the games that were recently said to have been deactivated are now restored. The primary releases still missing in action include 5 in 1 Solitaire, Digger Dan & Kaboom, Face Pilot: Fly With Your Nintendo DSi Camera!, Match Up!, and Word Searcher 3. In other words, pretty much all of the big games are back.
Original (1/8): A few days ago, it was discovered that a ton of different DSi games were pulled from the 3DS eShop. For whatever reason, they simply couldn’t be purchased any longer, and Nintendo hadn’t commented on the situation.
We’re still unsure what took place, but we can now say that some of these delisted titles have returned – including Shantae: Risky’s Revenge. You can now purchase the following games once again:
101 MiniGolf World
Little Red Riding Hood’s Zombie BBQ
Plants vs Zombies
Shantae: Risky’s Revenge
Spot the Difference
Telegraph Sudoku & Kakuro
Will the other delisted games be restored as well? Hopefully that’ll be the case, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
