Amazon Now Selling Nintendo Games Digitally

Online retailer Amazon is now selling select Nintendo games from the eShop. As part of retailer Amazon’s repaired relationship with Nintendo, fans can purchase a selection of games on Wii U, 3DS, and even the Wii, with classic Virtual Console offerings and recent releases alike.

The process is simple: users purchase the software, log onto their Nintendo Network ID at the check-out, then redeem the code to have the software sent to your system via Spotpass.


The initial software run includes the likes of Super Mario 3D World and Mario Kart 8 to Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland and World of Goo. Pricing of these downloads matches their eShop listings.

Nintendo opened the door up to software purchases directly from their official website last year, and now an outside retailer is partnering for a similar service. Amazon recently began selling the New 3DS XL directly, after a years-long feud with Nintendo where only third parties carried hardware and software. At present, this offer is limited to North America only with a selection of games likely to grow in the future.
