These games will never be forgotten
The Wii U and 3DS eShops are set to close on March 27th, 2023. While you’ll still be able to redownload your already-purchased games after that date, it will be impossible to make new purchases. That’s why many are scrambling to buy any titles they’ve missed over the years.
YouTuber Jirard “The Completionist” Khalil is keenly aware of the 3DS/Wii U eShops closing, and he wanted to make sure he snagged every single game available before the plug was pulled. Consider it the ultimate showing of support for these legacy devices, as well as passion for preserving games for future generations.
When all was said and done, The Completionist spent $22,791 USD getting every single digital title available on the Wii U and 3DS. This amounted to 866 Wii U and 1547 3DS games (including DSiWare, Virtual Console and DLC). These games took up a whopping 1.2 TB on Wii U and 267 GB on 3DS.
