    • Nintendo are doing maintenaince (sorry if I mispelled that) because Bill came and attacked everyone to stop them from purchasing eshop titles then downloaded everything he could to make da eshop slow down.


  1. For Pokemon do you think they mean you won’t be able to play online or do they mean it is impossible to play the game on the system during those times because if so that’s strange.


  2. For people saying that it says just “Wii U” on one of the bullet points, I believe that the format got all jacked up. I think “Nintendo DS”, “Wii U”, “Wii U”, “Nintendo 3DS”, “Wii”, and “Nintendo DS”, are all supposed to be subcategories.


  3. im Hoping they put Ds Retail titles in 3DS eshop And Have Dsi And Wii Connected to Eshop now Also NNID and Miiverse for 3ds Maybe a Change how eshop looks hmmm,…


    • I honestly dont think they’ll put the last system stuff as downloads. i mean, there’s a chance, but there’s no point. if you REALLY want the titles, go to the shop, they still sell them afterall. i only really see it needed once the games go off retail, once the next handheld is out.
