With Nintendo shutting down the eShop on 3DS and Wii U, it seems they are not quite done with terminating other functions for these consoles. Nintendo has issued a statement saying that image sharing for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U will be discontinued next month. Come October 25th, Nintendo will be ending the function and it will no longer be possible to share images to Facebook or Twitter with these consoles.

We have the official statement from Nintendo below.

Notification of the Discontinuation of Nintendo 3DS Image Share and Wii U Image Share

As of 25 October 2022, it will no longer be possible to use Nintendo 3DS Image Share or Wii U Image Share to post images on Facebook and Twitter.

  • It will no longer be possible to share images from Nintendo 3DS systems or Wii U consoles.
  • Images and comments already posted to Facebook and Twitter will remain available even after the discontinuation of the service.
  • The discontinuation time may be pushed back due to system issues.

We thank you for supporting the Image Share service.
