If you’ve been trying to access the Wii Shop Channel over the past few days, you might not have had much luck. According to Nintendo Everything, the digital store has “big problems”.
It’s reportedly impossible to access the storefront in the first place – and instead you’ll see a “blank screen” on launch, eventually followed by an error code. Nintendo’s online maintenance page doesn’t mention any issues either (thanks, GoNintendo).
Although Nintendo stopped selling games on this digital store in 2019, the current bug means that anyone who wants to access past downloads and purchases can’t right now. Nintendo previously said it would stop downloads on the Wii “eventually,” but never specified when users will no longer be able to re-download games.
Nintendo recently announced that it would close the 3DS eShop and Wii U eShop by March 2023. While users can no longer purchase games, they can still download previous purchases.
