Gamers in Latin America and the Caribbean are about to see a major Nintendo-related closure later this year. Nintendo has announced that, starting July 31st, 2020, they will be closing down the Wii U and 3DS eShops in the region. On July 31st, players in 42 countries will no longer be able redeem download codes, redownload software, or update software. Nintendo is encouraging players to redeem any codes they have before the date arrives. Nintendo explained that these countries have “limited Nintendo eShops for the Wii U system and Nintendo 3DS family of systems” that have “provided a few basic functions, such as game code redemption”. Mexico has a full Nintendo eShop, so they are not affected by this closure. As for Brazil, Nintendo says that “Brazil has a full Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems and has neither a full nor limited Nintendo eShop for the Wii U system”.
