More about Nintendo eShop service

The Nintendo eShop is a digital distribution service powered by the Nintendo Network for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS family, and by a dedicated online infrastructure for the Nintendo Switch. Launched in June 2011 on the Nintendo 3DS, the eShop was enabled by the release of a system update that added the functionality to the Nintendo 3DS's HOME Menu. It is the successor to both the Wii Shop Channel and DSi Shop. Unlike on the Nintendo 3DS, the eShop was made available on the launch date of the Wii U, although a system update is required in order to access it. It is also a multitasking application, which means it is easily accessible even when a game is already running in the background through the system software, though this feature is exclusive to the Wii U and the Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo eShop features downloadable games, demos, applications, streaming videos, consumer rating feedback, and other information on upcoming game releases.

@FamousSmokeShop the website is down, I cannot shop for two weeks. what is the problem?

With regard to Twice, I don't know if Twiceshop will still be maintained or if it will be merged with this one. On one hand, this is kinda risky because if the website is down, then all groups are screwed so here's hoping their IT vendor is really really good
