The Nintendo Wi-Fi connection for Wii and DS will end on May 20, bringing an end to online play on both systems.

“The discontinued services include online play, matchmaking and leaderboards for many Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games,” Nintendo wrote on its support page. ” Users can still play the games in offline mode, which continues to offer a rich game-play experience.”

Online play for Wii U and 3Ds games will be unaffected, except for “Wii mode on Wii U and Nintendo DS games on Nintendo 3DS,” and access to the Wii Shop Channel, the Nintendo DSi Shop, and video-on-demand services on Wii and DS will still be available.

“We at Nintendo sincerely thank our fans for their continued support of our company’s legacy systems. Your enthusiasm for games made for these systems speaks to their longevity, and the passion of Nintendo fans.”

You can check out a full list of affected titles here.
