DSiWare are downloadable games previously found on the Nintendo DSi Shop, and currently on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Just like WiiWare, DSiWare titles could be paid using DSi Points. 12 Mario games and two Mario applications were released, in addition to one Mario-related Nintendo DS retail title digitally re-released for a limited time. The Nintendo DSi Shop closed on March 31, 2017,[1] but DSiWare titles will continue to be available for purchase via the Nintendo eShop. DSiWare titles purchased on a Nintendo DSi can be transferred to the Nintendo 3DS using the Nintendo 3DS Transfer Tool app, which is currently the only application available on the DSi Shop if it is accessed after the closure.

There were four different kinds of DSiWare.

  • Free DSiWare: Free of charge programs such as the DSi Browser and Flipnote Studio.
  • DSiWare 200: Software that can be purchased for 200 Points which will be very compact utility types of applications and small games
  • DSiWare 500: Software that can be purchased for 500 Points which will be simple puzzle games and other, more sophisticated utility applications.
  • DSiWare Premium: Software that costs 800 Points or more for the larger games and utility types.

Trivia[edit]

The screen that appears when a game is being downloaded.
  • When the customer buys DSiWare, they will see Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Toad (from Super Mario Advance) throwing little blue balls into a box, slowly filling it with blue in the process. When the box is completely blue filled, it'll turn on its side and look like a present before getting transported to the DSi Menu. Unlike WiiWare and Virtual Console for the Wii, the buyer needs to open the "present" first before playing directly. This was reused in the 3DS eShop.
  • The game Electroplankton: Beatnes has the invincibility theme as one of the background tunes to choose from, complete with Mario sound effects.
