Random: YouTuber spends almost $23k on each 3DS & Wii U eShop game
The 3DS and Wii U eShop services will be shutting down later this month, and that means you’ve only got plenty of time left to buy all the digital games you can get on their second-hand stores. Nintendo. YouTuber, streamer and video game media personality Jirard “The Perfecter” Khalil took this to the next level by literally buying all Games are available on these platforms.
The main driving force behind this idea is to preserve video games – with the aim of “saving” all the 3DS and Wii U eShop titles before they are lost forever. The quest was successful but it came at a cost, with total purchases amounting to $22,791 US Dollar. Here’s a bit of why Khalil wants to do this so much:
“Loss of vehicles is very real as far as preserving video games is concerned, since the beginning of this industry we run the risk of losing games forever every day, that’s why this is important…it took a lot of time and money but it was totally worth it for the sake of preserving the game.”
Funding for this mission was raised with the support of sponsors of The Completionist. And finally, 866 Wii And 1547 3DS Game (includes DSiWare, Virtual Console and DLC) purchased with 464 eShop cards. The total library occupies 1.2 TB on Wii U And 267 GB on 3DS.
Of course, there were much There are many hurdles to overcome, from stores restricting eShop card purchases to Nintendo only allowing a certain amount per digital wallet. The specific game even had to be completed before DLC can be purchased, which sometimes makes the whole process a nightmare.
This work means 3DS and Wii U fans can now rest easy knowing all these digital games have been saved when the store service is down. March 27. Thank you Jirard! The video that captures the entire journey is worth watching, and there’s even a 3DS game recommendation from our Nintendo Life video maker, Zion Grassl.
