    Nearly a year ago, Nintendo put out a blog post, mentioning that the DSi shop would be closing early in 2017. Though you can no longer add points to an account, you can still download previously purchased items on your DSi, or buy titles if you have remaining funds, that is, until March 31, 2017. Nintendo claims that "most" DSiware will be available to download unhindered on the 3DS's e-Shop, but in the case of the DSi, you will no longer be allowed to re-download DSiware, even if you purchased it. This is a reminder for those that still use a DSi to grab their purchases before it's too late and make peace with the service being ended.

    Rest in pieces.

    ...I don't think I've ever actually been to the DSi Store, and I do own two DSis.

    not far from a computer
    Art style games were the best, especially picopict with one of the best Zelda 1 dungeon remix ever.

    RIP DSi . The Nintendo DSi could've had a great potential for hacking, but unfortunately even the 3DS was hacked before. As for the DSi Shop, it was straight up useless. Not putting retail games on the shop was kinda stupid, at least Wii Shop has VC.

    Never owned a DSi. It was one of the most pointless Nintendo devices.

    The article on nintendo.com states that "The ability to re-download Nintendo DSiWare games will also stop at some point," implying that the ability to re-download purchases will not stop on March 31st, but instead at a later date.

    So sad to hear the official death of any console... and we still cant install games on it. Will be happy when a freeshop kinda thing will be released for dsi which will pull from private servers. Games are pretty small so the only problem will be to collect them all...

    Got a dsi because I only had an original DS. It was a nice upgrade. Of course they announced the dsi xl the next day, but that's how my luck goes. Never did use the store except for that four swords.

    See that's what I don't get about anyone going digital vs physical purchases. When stuff like this happens, you say goodbye to your money? Not to mention account bans, etc

    Didn't know it was even alive.

    A very small amount of users would actually use it at that point. :P
