Nintendo Support has recently announced about a confirmed closure of of the limited Nintendo eShop for the 3DS and Wii U systems across 42 countries.
The statement was passed via the official Nintendo Support page for the Americas.
The limited e Shops for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U systems that were the source of all the major updates and downloads will be completely closed in 42 countries across Latin America and the Caribbean till July 31st.
The Nintendo Support’s statement was : –
“users in the affected regions will no longer be able to access the eShops to redeem a download code, redownload software, or update software, so we encourage users to take any such actions before the closure date.”
“Also, any software that requires the limited Nintendo eShops to operate may cease to function,”
In the list of the 42 countries Mexico and Brazil have been exempted from the closure. This is because of the availability of full eShops in these countries.
However, Nintendo along with the announcement of the shop’s closure has also let the user’s know about the ways they can make use of their existing un redeemed codes.
Moreover, information was granted with sufficient time in hand, so there wouldn’t be much losses for the users who are residents of the listed 42 countries.
