    Anyone know when Brain Age will stop selling on the store or when the Wii U shop is going belly up?

    So here's a scenario. A while down the road I get myself a Wii U and decide that I want to play the good old games. Problem is that the eshop is closed. Cant get Brain Age. How can I get a cold boot going? If the loadiine site is down at that time too then I'm royally screwed because I never learned to self host. Am I missing something? Or is this really a possibility when the wii u shop closes and the loadiine site is gone we can say bye to wii u hacking?

    I think the Wii U eShop still has a couple of years. The Wii Shop still didn't shut down, but it only has a handful of downloads on it.

    I'm pretty sure a proper cold boot hack (likely boot1) will be out by that time, which doesn't require anything.

    It will also likely be a long time before the eshop closes or loadiine.ovh closes
