March 31st 2018 they're shutting down the ability to add Wii points to the shop. January 2019 all Wii Shop functionality is shutting down.

Actually, you'll still be able to download previously purchased games after January 2019, you just won't be able to buy new ones. They announced that they will be shutting down past game purchase downloads as well at some point in the future, but they did not put a date on it.

I call that Nintendo creating false hope to increase sales, nothing more. It will all go down eventually. Before 2020, I am sure.

Wii U shop won't be much longer. Anything to keep Switch sales up.

GameXplain just answered to my call.

That only tells me the VC games. What else is in the shop that isn't VC?

Which of these can't be played elsewhere? I know Pokemon Rumble, but I already have it.

I'm pretty sure "My Life as a King" has never been released elsewhere. I'd kill for a PC version. They did a kind of successor too IIRC "My Life as a Dark Lord" but never got around to that one.

The choose to me would be FFIV and Chrono Trigger, among some other like the Turbografx games.

Rondo of Blood is the most essential VC Purchase IMO. Zombies ate my Neighbors is another big one.
