Wii shop coming to a close ☹️

On January 30th 2019, the Wii shop will come to a close. Before then, this coming March, Nintendo will disable the ability to add Wii points, which effectively means that in a little under 2 months, purchasing Virtual Console games will no longer be possible. This is a huge shame as there are some absolute gems on the platform; PC Engine titles such as Ninja Spirit and Rondo of Blood, two examples of games I would not have had the pleasure of experiencing if it wasn’t for the Wii Shop model. In addition, Konami’s ‘Rebirth’ series offered new takes on classic titles such as Castlevania, Gradius and Contra. I suggest saving up and scouring the Wii Shop for titles that you may wish to add to your collection before March.
