    As you may know, Nintendo has announced that online services for the Nintendo 3DS, 2DS and Wii U family of systems are shutting down on April 8th, 2024, at 4pm PDT

    This means that SpotPass data distribution will be halted. Games that make use of SpotPass features to enable content such as Mario Kart 7 and some Pokémon games will no longer be able to do so.

    The SpotPass Archival Project allows owners of 3DS / 2DS and Wii U consoles to contribute their SpotPass data for archival purposes to assist network revival services such as the Pretendo Network in preserving SpotPass content.

    3DS/2DS and Wii U systems store a local database of titles for which you have recently received SpotPass data. This database can be used to check for the URLs it uses to download the SpotPass content. With that in mind it is It important that this database is contributed before April 8th, 2024, at 4pm PDT

    Note: These database dumps are anonymized when collected.

    If you would like to help this project out and contribute your SportsPass data you have around 48 hours to do so, visit the SpotPass Archival Project which has easy to follow instructions for both the 3DS and Wii U.

    I have contributed the data from both my 3DS and Wii U, which took around 5 minutes to do for each console.
