Nintendo has announced that the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service for DS and Wii will be discontinued globally on May 20, 2014. This means that online services (online play, leaderboards etc.) for games including Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart DS and Mario Sports Mix will no longer be available. With Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U around the corner, players will most likely be able to play online in those games.

The Internet Channel, Nintendo DS Browser, Nintendo DSi Browser, Nintendo DSi Shop, Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Pay & Play, Wii Shop Channel, and YouTube will still work as normal. The following Nintendo-published games' online services will be discontinued on May 20:
