purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code
from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in the Nintendo
eShop on either Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be

Nintendo Network account.

The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points,
