Nintendo Wii and DS To Lose Online Gaming Capability

Nintendo announced plans to end multiplayer support for the older original Wii and DS systems in May 20.

After that date, Nintendo will discontinue online play, matchmaking and leaderboards for many Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games.

Nintendo has released a list of games and services that will be affected here.

Users will still play the games in offline mode.

Nintendo added that online play for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games would be unaffected (aside from the Wii mode on Wii U and Nintendo DS games on Nintendo 3DS family systems). Other online functionality, such as access to the Wii Shop Channel, the Nintendo DSi Shop and video-on-demand services, will also not affected, at least for now.

"We at Nintendo sincerely thank our fans for their continued support of our company's legacy systems. Your enthusiasm for games made for these systems speaks to their longevity, and the passion of Nintendo fan," Nintendo said in a statement.
