So far, it is not clear whether it is a technical mistake and the shops may come online again. In this case, Nintendo would certainly have reported to speak. And there is radio styles so far.

What is bad at the switched-off eShops?

Since 2017, owners of the DSI could not buy any games in the online shop. Since 2019, the Scots for new purchases have also been dense in the Wii shop. Nevertheless, it was important for the renewed download already bought games that the consoles will continue to hang on the network. This is currently currently and if Nintendo does not fix it, in the future not the case.

Especially at valuable gaming beads of the two systems, for which it is scary difficult to get to physical specimens, the sudden shutdown is a large disaster. So if you could not supply yourself with a download of the digital favorite game, now looks into the tube.
