Nintendo ending online services for 3DS and Wii U software

Early next year, online play and other functionality will end

Posted on

Nintendo has announced that in early April 2024, online play and other functionality that uses online communication will end for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U software. This also includes online co-operative play, internet rankings, and data distribution.

With some exceptions, online services will end for all Nintendo 3DS and Wii U software. Players will still be able to use features and game modes that do not require online communication. For the foreseeable future, it will still be possible to download update data and redownload purchased software and downloadable content from Nintendo eShop.

The news follows 2022 announcement that it's no longer possible to make purchases in Nintendo eShop for the Wii U system and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

Nintendo will announce a specific end date and time at a later date.
