Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShops Closing on July 31, 2020 in Some Caribbean and Latin American Countries

A few Nintendo 3DS eShops and Nintendo Wii U eShops will be closing this summer.
Specifically, Nintendo announced that some Caribbean and Latin American countries that do not have full eShops for these systems will lose access to the online storefronts on July 31, 2020. Both Mexico and Brazil will be exempt from these closures, as each country has full eShops for both systems.

Here is the full list of countries which will see their Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShops closing on July 31, 2020. No eShop codes for these regions will be able to be redeemed after that date, it won’t be possible to update any games, and you won’t be able to download or redownload any games you own.

In the FAQs going over these eShop closures, Nintendo noted, “We constantly re-evaluate our business and make decisions based on a variety of factors.”

These closures will affect the Nintendo 2DS and 3DS systems, New Nintendo 2DS and 3DS systems, and Nintendo Wii U. Nintendo Switch eShops will not be affected.

whew, I thought this meant for everywhere. I still have to buy Fatal Frame 5 on the wii u and play it. 3DS is whatever, I bought most games I wanted on that system.
I actually bought the game from Japan, just to have the complete series physical.
Too bad they still haven't released a collection on the switch. I wants it!

Seems pretty quick to close the Eshop for 3DS. Is the 3DS official dead? I haven't kept up if any more games are being released for it.
