Reminder: Wii Shop Channel closes Thursday, 31st January, 2019 at 06:00 UK time

As Nintendo announced above about Wii Shop Channel, which will be closed on January 31st, 2019 at 6:00 AM GMT. I remember that I used that channel on my old Wii (which I don't have my old console anymore, unfortunate!) to play some games like Pokemon Rumble from years ago. To be honest, I'll miss this channel that I like some games I've bought from the channel. Will you miss Wii Shop Channel? And have you used it before?

I honestly won’t miss it. It was a good idea, but the way you bought the games on it was kind of cliche in my opinion. It would’ve worked better for me on a console with a touch screen.

I never used it, so I wont miss it.
Plus you can access most of the same games on the WiiU eShop? so I dont see the huge lose in this.

But what about any WiiWare game like Pokemon Rumble? I'm not sure if Wii U still have them that I haven't checked it yet.

There's a couple titles exclusive to Wii Shop that will no longer be available because of it, so hopefully those titles will get a port to the Switch. Outside of that, I'll just miss the old days of looking through the Wii Shop Channel back in 2010 and begging my mom to use her credit card to buy me games on there loool

:sweat::sweat::sweat:Didn’t realize it was so close

Also, what’ll happen to the Non-CTGP Wiimmfi method that uses the Wii Shop Channel?

I'm pretty sure there's another way to get access to Wiimmfi without CTGP or SD card if they close Wii Shop Channel.

I'm pretty impressed how long it existed, even after first party discontinuation. Tbf, I will miss the feeling when scrolling through the menu as a kid while listening to the iconic theme.
I only bought one game from the Wii Shop, being Super Mario Kart in 2010, never tried the other games out tho, except the free channels.

I never really used the Wii Shop Channel sadly, but it's still sad to see things like this come to an end when lots of players still use the Wii to this day. Of course, it also means Nintendo are focusing on new things, which is exciting nonetheless!

Nintendo just closed a piece of history without saving anything. This means you won't be able to re download software you bought. This is why many say buying digital games is not actually buying them. Personally, I think Nintendo should've kept it open, they one hundred percent could've maintained it.

Thankfully you can directly download the .wad ‘s of games no longer available but I will miss the loading screen, music, and Mario jumping at the blocks of the Wii Shop Channel.

Hopefully it will be you will be able to use it again soon, as the creators of RiiConnect24 have brought the Weather, News, and Everybody Votes Channel back to life, in similar fashion to how Wiimmfi brought Nintendo WFC back to life.
