Nintendo open their own Online Shop

Nintendo has opened their very own online shop, to be aptly known as the ‘Nintendo Online Shop.’

Whilst not a complete source for all Nintendo products, the shop is, at least initially, selling Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS accessories, as well as items that you wouldn’t be able to purchase from various retail outlets – such as replacement instruction manuals, which are available for 105 yen/ £0.80 each.

Additionally, the shop also allows consumers to purchase parts for Nintendo’s older products such as the Game Boy Advance and GameCube which is certainly a positive move for those that still enjoy a little Retro gaming in their lives.

The bad news is that the Nintendo Online Shop is currently only available to Japan, and it doesn’t shop internationally.
