Everyone, I'm afraid a sad time is upon us. May 20, 2014, Nintendo ends its DS and Wii wifi service.
I'm surprised it's ending so soon, with Pokemon White 2 and Black 2 being relatively new and both systems having many popular games that connect over wifi! I knew it would happen eventually, but so soon kind of hits me hard. I know the Nintendo wifi was not good at the best of times, but to hear about the shutdown of Nintendo's first wifi attempt makes me a bit sad. I was hoping the games would still be able to be played online through the 3DS and Wii U, but now I won't be able to recreate all the good times I've had over wifi. Animal Crossing (both of them) and Mariokart (both of them) were both great games to play online and I'll miss the option to do that. I will just have to remember the good times by myself from now on.
