DSiWare Games Disappearing from 3DS eShop?

Though most Nintendo players have migrated over to the Switch, the previous DS and 3DS handhelds were a favorite console for many. Yet Nintendo has reportedly taken down DSiWare titles from the 3DS eShop. No warnings or explanations have been offered by Nintendo at this time.

The disappearances were first noticed by Twitter user  @comeoutpunching, who stated that, “all DSiWare games released before mid-May 2011 have been deactivated on the eShop.” These include some beloved games such as Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, Asphalt 4: Elite Racing, Dr. Mario Express, and Mr. Driller: Drill Till You Drop.

So far, the takedowns are worst for users in North America and many of the removed titles are still available in Europe.

Since Nintendo has yet to release any statement, this is all hopefully a temporary error that will soon be fixed. However, it wouldn’t hurt to snag some of those 3DS eShop games you may have been on the fence about!
