Nintendo removes Wii, WiiWare, DS, and DSiWare games from their website, Wii U page removed as well

End of an era

Nintendo has done a bit of housecleaning on their official website. If you're looking for listings on Wii, WiiWare, DS, and DSiWare games, you'll have to look elsewhere. Nintendo has removed all pages for those games. On top of that, Nintendo has taken down the info page for the Wii U as well. I guess Nintendo had to make some room for all the recent Switch games!

"And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain

I've lived a life that's full
I've traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Regrets, I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption

I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside
I find it all, all so amusing

To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way
Oh no, no, not me
I did it my way

For what is man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

And did it my way"

The final curtain has fallen. But guess what?

Obviously its fine that they took down the Wii U page, the console is dead, it doesn't get to sit on their site... but I'm not sure about taking down those listings, it was a good way to keep track of their prior line ups that we just lost.

Not gonna lie, a part of me is going to miss the Apple-ish branding of the Wii and DS era dearly

Without Iwata and Reggie current Nintendo has little to connect it to the Wii and DS line. May it rest in our memories to those who were there.

Keeping Wiiware on their website post-Wii Shop Channel would be false advertising.

Whereas the japanese website still has their official and unaltered pages for N64 games or Dream World expos from the late nineties ...

Nintendo of Japan and Nintendo of America and Europe might as well be on different planets.

You can still get DSi games on the 3ds.
