Nintendo of Japan announced on September 29th, 2017[IAWcite.todayMemWeb] that the Wii Shop Channel would be discontinued January 31st, 2019. However, users would no longer be able to add "Wii Points" to their account in order to purchase things on March 27th, 2018.

Quite a bit of the software available has been added to No-Intro's "Nintendo - Nintendo Wii (DLC)" database, but it's likely incomplete.

In addition, it was recently rediscovered how to access the Wii Shop Channel on a PC, so creating a project to download the public-facing version of the site is possible. Originally documented on WiiBrew.[IAWcite.todayMemWeb]


Accessing the Wii Shop Channel on PC

First, get "Wii NWC Prod 1" from here: https://ariankordi.net/cert/[IAWcite.todayMemWeb] and install it, certificate password is "alpine"

Then, change your browser user agent to "Opera/9.30 (Nintendo Wii; U; ; 2077-4; Wii Shop Channel/21.0(A); en)"

Next, go to these pages in order:

1. https://oss-auth.shop.wii.com/oss/serv/index.jsp

2. https://oss-auth.shop.wii.com/oss/serv/CheckRegistered.jsp

3. https://oss-auth.shop.wii.com/oss/serv/Register.jsp?country=US&region=2&language=en&age=&serial=

Then try to go to https://oss-auth.shop.wii.com/oss/serv/W_01.jsp?country=US&region=2&language=en&age=&serial= and it should work

https://oss-auth.shop.wii.com/oss/serv/B_05.jsp?country=US&region=2&language=&age=&serial=&titleId=00050000101d6b00

Any valid Nintendo title ID works, since it queries the entire Nintendo ecommerce database

https://oss-auth.shop.wii.com/oss/serv/B_05.jsp?country=US&region=2&language=&age=&serial=&titleId=010000A00218E000

This is a Switch title, and it doesn't show its name but it shows its title ID, it would show nothing if it didn't exist, so it exists
