There are still a lot of games I plan to get, but I’m putting it off for budgeting reasons. How long will the virtual console last on Wii U and 3ds for that matter.

thanks.

When Nintendo makes the announcement they are closing it down. In other words, nobody here knows. We can only speculate. Therefore, it is in your best interest to buy asap when able.

Not really many games worth buying.
Factor in you can still get them after the eShop closes.

I think that's a reasonable assumption.... that's 5 years from system discontinuation. We shall see.

Doesn’t WU and switch share the same store “engine”? I mean, ps3, psp and vita stores are still accesible, just not updated (even for offers).

i think as long as there’s network that Nintendo keeps up, there will be access to the stores.

3ds and Wiiu u allegedly do, I dont know if switch does entirely, saw a spawn wave video recently where it was mentioned nintendo were looking to move forward with newer online servers for multiplayer, dont know if that will be upgraded with patches or wait til next gen, switch must only have 3 years left in current form

When Nintendo announced the Wii and DSi shop shutdowns, they gave users six months to add points to their accounts and at least a year to make final purchases. I'm hoping the 3DS and Wii U eShop closure announcements are made well in advance of the actual shutdown.
