Today however, as spotted by GameXplain, there’s good news. Both the Wii Shop Channel and DSi Shop are back available to access. Nintendo has yet to comment on their return, or the reason for their extended absence. As before, these stores are accessible only for existing content owners to redownload past purchases. Both stores have been closed to new purchases for some time.
The Wii Shop Channel and the DSi Shop are now again accessible after several months of being unavailable. Back in March, both digital marketplaces were covertly made inaccessible. Nintendo later responded to Eurogamer’s inquiry regarding the outlets’ condition by saying they were “undergoing repair,” without providing a timeline for their restoration.
