Nintendo Preps For DSi Launch With Shopping Channel Update

This article is over 15 years old and may contain outdated information

Not sure if this update is coming out for North American Wiis now, but overnight the Wii’s Shopping Channel got a minor update. The interface has been updated so Wii Points are now referred to as Nintendo Points, but as we mentioned before Nintendo’s currency is tied to a console. The DSi comes out next week and you’ll be able to use Nintendo Points to purchase software, unannounced launch software, when the system arrives in Japan.

The other change is a button to check out which controllers/peripherals are required to play a game. If you’re in Japan, here are the ways you can get Nintendo Points.
