Wii Shopping Channel to end
The Wii Shopping Channel (Wii Shop Channel) will be terminated on 31 January 2019 (not a typo) with all WiiWare and Wii Virtual Console games unable to be purchased from that date on both Wii and Wii U. Purchase of Wii Points will end on 27 March 2018.
There will be a program to refund unused Points in the future. System transfers from Wii to Wii U will continue for the time being but is also set to end. You will be able to continue to play purchased WiiWare and Wii Virtual Console games as long as you don’t erase from the main unit.
