Nintendo’s Wii Shop Channel Can’t Be Accessed Right Now

If you’ve tried accessing the Wii Shop Channel over the past few days, you might not have had much luck. According to Nintendo Everything, the digital store has been “experiencing major issues” and has now been down for a few days.

It’s supposedly impossible to access the storefront at all – and you’ll instead be presented with a “blank screen” on startup which eventually follows with an error code. Nintendo’s online maintenance page does not mention any issues, either (thanks, GoNintendo).

Although Nintendo stopped game sales on the store in 2019, this current error means anyone who wants to access previous downloads and purchases is unable to right now. Nintendo previously said it would stop downloads “at some point”, but never specified exactly when users will no longer be able to re-download games.

More recently, Nintendo announced it would be closing down the 3DS eShop and Wii U eShop. While users will no longer be able to buy games, they’ll still be able to download previous purchases.
