Nintendo has revealed that two more features are being discontinued on the 3DS and Wii U as the company prepares to end support for both consoles and close the 3DS and Wii U eShop in March 2023.
From 25th October 2022, you’ll no longer be able to sign into your Nintendo Account by linking Facebook or Twitter on your 3DS or Wii U, or share screenshots using the 3DS and Wii U Image Share feature to these two social media platforms.
If you currently use Facebook or Twitter to sign into your Nintendo Account on the 3DS or Wii U now, Nintendo has advised that you’ll need to sign in with your email and password instead, or sign in via Apple or Google (support is remaining for these two for now).
This is the latest change to the Wii U and 3Ds after eShop card functionality was removed in August. Nintendo has stated that these changes may well be delayed if there are system issues, but we’re already saying goodbye to social media integration with our consoles!
We’re not really ready to say goodbye to these consoles, and we don’t think we will be by next March either. We’ll always have our physical games, at least.
For more information, you can check out Nintendo’s support pages for Image Share and Linking a Facebook or Twitter account.
