Yes, it’s finally time. Nintendo is pulling the plug on the eShop.
From March 2023, you will not be able to buy any more games from the Nintendo 3DS eShop and the Wii U eShop.
Can I still add credit to the eShop?
Yes, but only until 08/29/2022. So, if you still want to buy some games with store credit, you better add some funds before it’s too late.
You only have until 03/27/2023 to buy stuff in the eShop.
Or just buy physical games. It’s better for Nintendo 3DS anyway…
Can I still download purchased games?
Yes, even after 03/27/2023 and in the foreseeable future you will be able to download your purchased games and to play online and download system updates.
