“Crunchyroll, YouTube, and Niconico apps to close down on Wii U this yr”
I like this prolonged eulogy the Wii U is getting
Whereas the 3DS is shutting down its eShop early subsequent yr: one other market is dying a gradual loss of life. The Wii U YouTube app now has an finish of life date, and so do two different providers on the console.
As identified by Nintendo Every little thing, the YouTube assist web page for the Wii U was just lately up to date, stating: “Observe: The YouTube app is now not out there for brand new downloads from the Wii U eShop resulting from Nintendo’s upcoming discontinuation. Beginning in October, the YouTube app will now not be out there on Wii U gadgets. Viewers can nonetheless get pleasure from YouTube on Nintendo Change gadgets.” Though the 3DS and Wii U shutdown is March 27, 2023, a number of firms are getting issues began slightly earlier (to arrange for the opposite part of the shutdown, the place on August 29, 2022, you’ll be able to’t use Nintendo eShop card funds on each marketplaces).
Crunchyroll is doing the identical factor, as this Twitter person has revealed: they despatched out an electronic mail to Wii U customers that service was ending on August 29, 2022. Lastly, Niconico has a web page up much like Google, which talks about finish of service, largely for the 3DS app, which has been in operation since 2014.
All of it is smart, it’s simply uncommon to have the ability to discuss concerning the two programs lately: so I’m going to take each alternative. Additionally, the under “we’re unhappy to see you go” picture from Niconico is nice. To see anybody even acknowledge the 3DS and Wii U in 2022 warms my coronary heart.
