Pokémon Games Continue To Dominate 3DS Charts Ahead Of eShop Shut Down
As the eShop prepares to shut down, many gamers are wondering what they should do with their remaining time on the platform. For some, the decision is easy: buy as many games as possible before they disappear forever. But for others, the choice is not so clear.
Should you buy all the games you’ve been meaning to get? Or should you focus on preserving your game history?
In this post, we’ll take a look at both options and help you decide what’s best for you.
If you’re primarily concerned with buying games, then your best bet is to focus on the titles that you’ve been meaning to get but haven’t had a chance to yet. These could be big-name releases that you missed at launch, or smaller indie games that have flown under your radar.
Either way, the important thing is to act fast. Once the eShop shuts down, you’ll no longer have access to it, and your only other option will be to buy physical copies of games (if you can find them).
If you’re more interested in preserving your game history, then your best bet is to focus on downloading any digital games that you own. This includes games that you’ve bought on other platforms, such as Steam, and then imported into your Wii U.
The reason for this is that, once the eShop is gone, you will no longer have any way to re-download these games. So if you want to keep them in your collection, you’ll need to back them up now.
Which option is best for you? Only you can decide. But whichever route you choose, make sure you act soon. The eShop is shutting down for good on March 31st, and once it’s gone, it’s gone for good.
