About 16 minutes ago, the Wii Shop officially shut down worldwide, rendering it inaccessible to all Wii users.
Although Japanese users will be able to receive a refund on unused Wii Points, users living in North America (and probably the rest of the world) will not have the option to receive a refund. Here’s what the official Nintendo website says regarding this matter:
- We encourage people to spend any unused Wii Points before January 30, 2019, after which it will no longer be possible to purchase content from the Wii Shop Channel.
- Refunds of Wii Points are not possible.
- Wii Points cannot be used to fund a Nintendo eShop account or Nintendo Account.
