dsishop The last call for the Nintendo DSi Shop is upon us. On March 31, 2017, people with Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL systems will no longer be able to purchase DSiWare from the handhelds’ online store.


This follows an announcement Nintendo made last year. On March 31, 2016, the company announced the digital distribution service’s closure. On September 30, 2016, the ability to add Nintendo DSi Points to an account was removed.

The Nintendo DSi originally launched in Japan in November 2008 and in the rest of the world in April 2009.
