A few months ago, it was announced that Nintendo would at last be pulling the plug on its Nintendo DSi Shop. Considering that NX is mere months away from release, this is something that didn't come as much of a surprise, but it's no doubt still disappointing news for many. There's still time to continue using the shop as per usual, but bear in mind that the service will begin winding down next month.

While the shop doesn't actually go down until 31st March (conveniently around the launch of NX), Nintendo was keen to put out a reminder that points cannot be added to your DSi wallet after 30th September at 5:00 PM PST. Games will still be redownloadable or transferable to a 3DS even after the shop's closure in March, but this move is no doubt intended to significantly curb traffic around the app as it enters its final days.

What do you think? Will you be buying any games for your DSi before the shop's closed? What were some of your favorite games? Drop us a comment in the section below.
