Wii Karaoke U

Service for Wii Karaoke U is coming to a close in Europe. Announced through a Miiverse post, the app will be discontinued at the end of March.

Players are advised to use any remaining tickets before we enter the month of April. My Nintendo will be removing the 1-hour Ticket, 2-hour Ticket, and 24-hour Ticket just before April begins as well. Also, beginning on March 1, the 30-day Ticket will no longer be available to purchase or validate.

The full Miiverse announcement post is as follows:

Splatoon’s final Splatfest is coming up and Nintendo are celebrating it in a variety of ways. European Wii U owners will soon be able to prove whether or not they’re as good as Callie and Marie. Wii Karaoke U, a karaoke game that’s free to download on the European Wii U eShop, will add three Squid Sisters songs on July 28th: “City of Colour”, “Ink Me Up” and “Calamari Inkantation”.

If you don’t want to pay actual money to try to your hand at these songs, remember that you can get a 1 hour Wii Karaoke U ticket on My Nintendo for 100 Platinum Points once per month.
