Nintendo's Dead Online Services Live! (For Now)

Nintendo's Dead Online Services Live! (For Now)

While Nintendo has officially killed off online functionality for the DS and Wii, the internet being the internet, people have found a way to keep it alive. Sort of. For now.

Private servers and custom code are keeping DLC downloads and some multiplayer services alive, although it's important to note that's for a limited range of titles (Mario Kart and Advance Wars are working), and you're going to need homebrew-capable hardware for it to run.

This isn't a permanent solution, but if you need to squeeze a few more days/weeks/months out of your last-gen online (and aren't afraid to mess with your consoles), have at it!
