Nintendo ending online support for Wii and DS tomorrow

by: Nathan -

Well this kinda came out of nowhere. I guess it's not too surprising since i'm guessing there aren't that many people still using the online services in these games but Nintendo could have given us some kind of heads up before pulling the plug. 

Nintendo has announced that as of May 20th, online play, matchmaking and leaderboards will be shut off for many Wii, DS and DSi games. Online play of course will continue for Wii-U and 3DS.

I had a lot of fun playing Mario Kart and Super Smash Brothers online so it's kinda sad to see that these games will be going offline for good.  

Here is a full list of games that will be affected.
