DSiWare Games Being Removed from eshop
Digital games can be great, a lot of times they can be cheap, easy to put on your system without handling a physical media and yet at the end of the day, your time with them is only so long as revealed by this Twitter post:
PSA to 3DS gamers and DS fans: all DSiWare games released before mid-May 2011 have been deactivated on the eShop, including the classic Shantae Risky’s Revenge! Luckily I got it on my DSi before that shop shut down. Grab from those still for sale while you can! Recs in thread.. pic.twitter.com/lVcawxTq8e

As revealed by Come Out Punching, the DSi game Shantae Risk’s Revenge is no longer available to download along with lots of other May 2011 and before titles. There are still other DSi titles available for purchase and download, but who knows for how long.
It’s a sad thing, but Nintendo and other companies can’t keep their servers live forever, so when it comes to digital downloads, better to get them sooner rather than later.
