Access wii shop channel without updating
Presently succeeded by the Nintendo e Shop, the Wii Shop Channel remains accessible on the Wii U console via Wii Mode, supporting the download of most Wii Ware titles, as well as most legacy, Wii-based Virtual Console titles, consequently allowing users to continue purchasing/downloading many Virtual Console titles that are yet to be available via the Nintendo e Shop.Wii Points are the currency used in transactions on the Wii Shop Channel.
Sometimes, Luigi appears in place of Mario, or both Mario and Luigi will swim across the screen.
The Wii Shop Channel is an online shop for the Wii video game console that allows users to download Virtual Console games, Wii Ware games, and additional channels. The channel launched with Wii on November 19, 2006.
Available software is currently organized into three sections: Virtual Console, Wii Ware, and Wii Channels.
All games are exact replicas of the originals with no updated features or graphics, with the exception of Pokémon Snap which was updated to allow in-game pictures to be posted to the Wii Message Board. Consoles include both Nintendo systems, such as the Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Nintendo 64, and non-Nintendo systems, such as the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, Sega Master System, PC Engine/Turbo Grafx-16, MSX, Neo Geo and Commodore 64 (Europe and North America only).
Each system has a base starting price for games on that system.
