Unless you’ve been living off the gaming network for the past few days/weeks/months, you’ll no doubt already know that 3DS and Wii U eShops are now closed to new business. You can currently still re-download any previous purchases from the online stores, but the window has closed on your last legal opportunity to get several eShop exclusives on these consoles, and fans have been taking to social media to praise the closed stores.

Lots of colorful artwork features the little orange eShop bag from the 3DS eShop that was shimmying around the back of the game icon before the little colorful data cubes fell down and filled the icon with a delicious orange, game data juice? Nothing dulls like a Nintendo progress bar!

While it can be easy to smile at people who are affected when a store closes, anyone who remembers frequenting a particular store in their youth probably knows the feeling of disappointment when it closes. [Shout out to Our Price and Volume One — one for our maturing British readers, there!] Some stores are associated with memories of excitement about a particular game, or that twinge of anticipation at finding discounted treasure on the shelves. In the end, this feeling is the same whether it is a real enterprise or a digital store.

Nintendo’s electronic stores, in particular, are known for having a little more personality than your average digital store (Switch notwithstanding) and many people have fond memories of these things. We have to admit, we’re sad we won’t be seeing that cheerful orange bag anymore.
