One extremely devoted Nintendo user has been able to remain on the screen of the 3DS and Wii U eShops for several days after the complete shutdown of the service. The 3DS and Wii U eShops were both permanently shut down by Nintendo on March 27. This meant that players could no longer purchase digital content for use on either of those platforms. Pokemon handlers were particularly agitated as a result of this, as it caused them to rush to download Pokemon Bank and Poke Transporter before the applications were taken offline.
In spite of the fact that the eShop was shut down, one user left the page for the service open after it was terminated. Unfortunately, as a consequence of a weak connection signal, their Wii U’s eShop was forced to close.
Wii U consoles owned by Nintendo fans lost connection due to the typhoon
A Reddit user named Gold_Poptart bragged about his accomplishment on the 3DS subreddit, demonstrating that they could remain on the eShop for the 3DS and Wii U after the company had officially shut down. However, a recent thunderstorm caused the Wii U to lose its internet connection. And by the time the console was able to reconnect, the eShop had already been deleted.
Gamers argued back and forth in the section for comments about whether or not this qualified as a victory. However, X_Parasite noted that your connection had been severed completely. “Because everything you try to do relies on their computer, you are stuck staring at the same screen that hasn’t been refreshed since yesterday. This is a very straightforward invitation to “take a photograph. It is possible that it will keep going for longer.
Others have voiced concern that the user’s Nintendo 3DS may have suffered from screen damage. Gold_Poptart responded, “Nah, all I have to do is push scroll left or right, and the screens will rearrange themselves.” “As long as I don’t choose anything, we should be fine,” she said. The user omgzphil talked about how some individuals are attempting to offer consoles like this at a high price. According to what the user wrote, “The API is defunct, so it will not work.”
During the shutdown, Nintendo prolonged the period during which 3DS and Wii U game download codes could be redeemed. The announcement was made after the eShops shut down before their scheduled time. Even though Nintendo’s 3DS and Wii U game libraries have been discontinued, supporters of the company can still hold out hope that some of their favorite games will be ported over to the Switch.
