Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to close

Nintendo has announced the upcoming termination of Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, the DS and Wii’s online network service suite.

What this means for users of these devices is that online play, matchmaking and leaderboards will be terminated. 

While this is a blow, some services will still be active, such as:

- Internet Channel
- Nintendo DS Browser
- Nintendo DSi Browser
- Nintendo DSi Shop
- Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Pay & Play
- Wii Shop Channel
- YouTube
- Hulu (where available)

The 3DS and Wii U will be unaffected, although the Nintendo Video service for 3DS is closing.

Closures will begin in May for the Far East. There is no word on a date for Europe as of yet.
