Nintendo is closing several of the original Wii’s online channels and services in June.
From June 28th, Nintendo will shut down the following channels:
- Nintendo Channel
- News Channel
- Forecast Channel
- Everybody Votes Channel
- Mii Contest Channel
- Data exchange with Wii Friends
Data exchange with Wii Friends will specifically close down the ability to send messages to friends, and will end Mii data exchange in some games, not all.
Said Nintendo in a statement:
We at Nintendo sincerely thank you for your continued patronage of our company’s products. We apologise to those of you currently using these services.
