DSiWare are downloadable games previously found on the Nintendo DSi Shop, and several were reissued for the Nintendo 3DS's eShop. Similar to WiiWare, DSiWare titles could be paid using Nintendo DSi Points. The Nintendo DSi Shop closed on March 31, 2017,[1] but DSiWare titles remained 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 Nintendo 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.
