Select Wii Channels and WiiConnect24 to end on June 28th


With Nintendo soon to center their focus on reinvigorating Wii U sales, they have announced the closure of previously available Wii services.

From June 28th Wii owners across Europe will no longer see any further updates select Wii Channels, which includes the Nintendo Channel, News Channel, Forecast Channel, Everybody Votes Channel, and Mii Contest Channel.

Similarly Nintendo will deactivate WiiConnect24, a key feature of the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, which has since been succeeded by SpotPass across both Nintendo 3DS and its home console successor.
