Nintendo will discontinue a number of Wii channels and services in June, the company has announced. Discontinued Wii channels include the Nintendo Channel, News Channel, Forecast Channel, Everybody Votes Channel and Mii Contest Channel.
The message boards will also be switched off, preventing Wii users from sending and receiving messages.
The channels will be discontinued on 28th June, although the Wii Shop will remain open.
“We at Nintendo sincerely thank you for your continued patronage of our company’s products,” a Nintendo spokesperson told Eurogamer.
“We apologise to those of you currently using these services, and ask for your understanding.
“The above services will no longer be available even if they are started up from the Wii Menu. However, services other than those mentioned above, such as the Wii Shop Channel and ‘Today’s Accomplishments’ on the Wii Message Board, will remain available.”
