Following the news that Netflix isn’t available anymore for the WiiU and the 3DS, the Lego City Undercover games have been delisted from the Nintendo eShop as well. The games are still playable if you’ve previously downloaded them.
Lego City Undercover was first released for the WiiU in 2013, followed by a release on multiple other platforms. The stand alone prequel Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins was released for the Nintendo 3DS in 2013 as well.
Lego City Undercover is still available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
If you are still using your Wii U and 3DS to watch Netflix… Which I’m sure that will be a very small percentage. Netflix is ending support on the platforms come June 30th.
The app has been removed from the eShop Dec 31st. Previous customers can still download.

Sad, but expected news: According to Nintendo’s Japanese website all models of the 3DS have ended production. (This includes the 3DS, New 3DS XL, 2DS and New 2DS XL.)
The 3DS series was quite a successful model, selling over 75 million consoles and over 384 million games in its lifetime.
Nintendo is now pouring all of its attention on the Nintendo Switch, which has taken over the handheld functionality.
