10 games to download before the Wii U and 3DS eShop closes

The 3DS and Wii U have hosted many brilliant titles in their lifetime. They bought us Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Super Smash Bros, and hours of competitive fun. But as the countdown begins for their eShop to shut down, gamers are frantically revisiting whatever nostalgia they can. As much as we love roaming around our own island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons or visiting the ancient land of Hisui in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, sitting down with an older console takes any Nintendo fanatic back to their very first experience.

The Wii U and 3DS eShops will close at the end of March 2023, and until then you can buy and download games from these digital stores. However, you only have until August 29, 2022 to redeem your eShop cards.
