systems. Nintendo adds new titles weekly to the Nintendo eShop for the
Wii U system as well as the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL systems, to
the Nintendo DSi Shop for the Nintendo DSi system and to the Wii Shop
Channel for the Wii console.
The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service and features games,
applications and videos. Users can add money to their account balance by
using a credit card or by purchasing a Nintendo Prepaid Card at a retail
store and entering the code from the card. All funds from one card must
be redeemed in either the Wii U eShop or the Nintendo 3DS eShop,
respectively. They are not transferable and cannot be divided between
the two systems.
The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points,
which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi Shop
offers games and applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points, which can be
purchased in the Nintendo DSi Shop. A Wii Points Card and Nintendo DSi
Points Card can be purchased at retail locations. All points from one

Shop, respectively. They are not transferable and cannot be divided
between the two systems.

their children can access. For more information about this and other
