Nintendo may not ever be on the leading edge of gaming, but it writes some bangers. Even the Wii shop song — which is essentially the home console version of hold music — is fertile ground for mashups. Soundcloud’s obsession with the Wii Shop jam also intersected with many of its other memes (“Bonfire,” Smash Mouth/Shrek, Space Jam, etc.) and this feels somehow like a fitting eulogy for that dying community.
