What is Nintendo eShop?
As one of the older pioneers in the console gaming market, Nintendo has since jumped into the online selling bandwagon. You can almost reminisce the time when you’ve had to fall in line in your favorite video game retailer to get the newest Super Mario Bros. With the Nintendo eShop, things got a lot more convenient.
If you have a Nintendo Switch, Wii U or a Nintendo 3DS, all of the games that you could ever want are there. Launched in 2011, as a successor to the Wii Shop channel and DSi shop, the Nintendo eShop consolidated Nintendo’s various console platforms into just one portal.
This makes sense as the concept of a digital distribution system enables for a more efficient way for Nintendo players to unite as one community. As of 2013, the Nintendo eShop has 26 million subscribers.
