    WiiU online funcionality is still here but what will happen when Nintendo shutdown the service?

    Switch online is free now however It will be a paid service on 2018


    The WiiU scene is ready for this? Play MK8 online, share and backup Mario Maker Levels...

    I don't think the servers will shut down just yet. That's way too soon.

    Servers will go down the same time when 3DS servers are officially killed.
    In other words, it's going to be shutdown 500 years from now.

    If you can still buy shit from the Wii Shop Channel on the OG Wii then the Wii U servers will last till the end of times.

    Last time I tried playing Mario Kart 8 online there was nobody else to get matched up with. Seems like majority of gamers have upgraded to Mario Kart 8: Deluxe Edition. When there's nobody else to play with the online service is effectively dead.

    That someone should develop a patch for Xenoblade X to remove the blinking offline warning... that is all

    I'd say maybe 5 or so years if we're lucky, who knows. I just want custom servers already.

    Even after Splatoon 2 launches, there will still be TONS of Splatoon 1 players because of tournaments, kids, and the hardcore fans who can't afford a Switch yet.

    When the Wii U got released people wearn't expecting the original Nintendo Wii's Wifi Connection service to go down as soon as it did.
    But that happened because of that service's financing. The PS2 and the Wii shared the same service so that was the end of PA2 onling gaming too excpet for sellect titles.
    Hopefully with this different service the Wii U will last untill the next Smash Bros game at least.

    hackers should be capturing decrypted packets of all games now before the servers are gone. specially monster hunter 3U since that one uses capcom servers.
