from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in Nintendo eShop
on either Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used
in either Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo
Network account.

The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points,
which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi
Shop offers games and applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points.
