The Wii Mini's lack of online capability certainly makes a ton of sense now. It's the end of the road. =(

I need to hurry up and start snagging stuff off the Wii Shop. Who knows how much longer it has in comparison.

That's a shame if it's true. The novelty of the weather channel wore off almost immediately but looking at it now, I'll miss it.

The end of WiiConnect 24 will have serious implications with Metroid Prime Trilogy among other games as well, although MPT is the only one that will affect me.

this is why i hate modern online consoles. any console should behave the same way it did on day one, even 20 years down the line. like my PS2. Gamecube, NES, SNES, PS1, N64, Genesis, etc. if it can't stand up years later, it's inferior.

That was quite quick to see the gimping of services begin, not even a whole year after the WiiU's release. Really puts the PS3/360's rental game purchases into more rental perspective now.

I translated the announcement from Nintendo and contacted them about whether this was the same for other regions (still no reply on that yet): http://whattheycallgames.blogspot.com/2013/04/nintendo-ending-various-wii-channels.html

I actually kind of enjoy Everybody Votes. Especially comparing the results to the map.

The list of games affected isn't that big thankfully. The Metroid Prime games are probably the only ones that will really suffer from any problems, but I imagine people could upload saves to GameFAQs with the credits already there. Their saves can be copied.

The Dr. Mario demo will no longer be available. Animal Crossing item distribution's officially ending. Image sharing in various games will stop. Big Brain's data sharing will kinda suck to lose. I can't think of any other features WC24 gave us in the games.
