Nintendo To Shut Down Some Wi-Fi Connection Services in May

Nintendo announced today that it will eliminate some Wi-Fi Connection services worldwide in a few months. Certain online services across the Nintendo DS, DSi and Wii consoles will no longer be available after May 20, including online play, leaderboards and matchmaking. The shutdown is set to take place on May 20, and will affect all regions.

While Wii U and 3DS will remain mostly unaffected by these changes, online play functionality when using Wii Mode will not be available. Features that will remain include the Internet Channel, Nintendo DS Browser, Nintendo DSi Browser, Nintendo DSi Shop, Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Pay & Play, Wii Shop Channel, and YouTube.
