Original article (Fri Aug 27, 2021 1:00 PM BST): Nintendo has announced that its digital eShop will soon be available in several new countries for the first time, bolstering its recent efforts to provide official access to its products across South America.
The eShop, a store accessible directly from Nintendo Switch systems that offers digital games and online subscriptions, will be available in Argentina, Colombia, Chile and Peru. A recent social media post asks fans to stay tuned for more information, with its launch slated for “very soon.”
Last December, the eShop launched in Brazil for the first time, offering 400 games on day one. Until these recent changes, Switch owners across South America had limited access to games and services and even had to import consoles from other territories, but things are certainly changing for the better.
We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for the eShop launch in the countries mentioned above and update this article as we learn more.
