The Wii Shop Channel(JP) is where the user can buy games or software. Products are bought using Nintendo Points (NP), which can be bought on the Wii Shop Channel with a credit card, or at a store as Nintendo Points card.
The service was discontinued on January 31, 2019 (rendering unspent Wii Points unusable), after Wii Points additions ended on March 27, 2018. The only feature intact is downloaded software on the Wii Shop Channel, and the only software titles available to download from the Wii Shop are two Wii channels, the save data update channel for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and the Wii System Transfer channel, both of which are free.
The prices for virtual console games are listed below with import games being a bit extra
- NES: 500 NP
- SNES: 800 NP
- N64: 1,000 NP
- GEN: 800 NP
- TG-16: 600 NP
- NEO: 900 NP
WiiWare is an original game service with the price per game varying between 500 NP and 1500 NP
Most Wii Channels are free but, many of them require the user to pay for their service once inside.
Remove Wii Shop Channel Account
The user can clear information from the Wii Shop Channel account by selecting this option. This erases the entire record of the Wii Shop Channel account, such as registered Wii Points and downloaded software. After this process, the account cannot be recovered. Software stored to an SD card after removing the account will be invalidated. This action is usually done so before transferring the ownership of the console.
Before removing his or her Wii Shop Channel Account, the user enters the serial number of the Wii console. If Parental Controls are being used, the PIN will need to be entered.
