Back in 2019, Nintendo announced 3DS and Wii U users located in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand would no longer be able to top up their eShop funds with a credit card.
Japan is now apart of this – with Nintendo’s customer support account on social media today confirming credit cards and prepaid cards will no longer be accepted as of 18th January 2022, 9 AM JST.
While credit cards will no longer be an option, users will still be able to use eShop cards and make use of funds on shared NNID accounts.
Up until January next year, users can still top up their accounts with a credit card. Are you still making transactions on the Wii U and 3DS eShop? Leave a comment down below.
