RUMOR: Wii U and 3DS will stop receiving new games starting from 2022

It seems that Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Wii U are destined not to officially receive new games starting from 2022 , with the closure of the certification process of new titles on Nintendo eShop for these platforms starting from next year.

It is not yet official news from Nintendo, but it is certainly likely that the company intends to close support for the two consoles through a definitive end of software support, although to be honest Nintendo 3DS may still have a certain market. , also given the ongoing sales.

The YouTube channel Impact Game Station seems to have received an email, sent by a developer, in which Nintendo reports that all entries to Nintendo eShop for Wii U and 3DS will be rejected starting from April 2022, so in fact it will no longer be possible to publish. new digital games starting from that date on the two platforms in question, certifying the definitive disposal of the machines.

It remains to be seen whether the total closure of the eShop service is also planned for this period, which would bring out the same problem that arose with Sony’s announcement on the closure of the PlayStation Store on PS3, PS Vita and PSP , which triggered a controversy capable of making the company retrace its steps and decide to keep the services open .

There is no information on this yet, with the alleged email that speaks only of the conclusion of the service for entering new games, but in the meantime as regards Nintendo 3DS we already know that official support has ended in Japan , with the closure of the service of repair.
