Nintendo eShop sales:


Also new this week:

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also
offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their
systems. Nintendo adds new games weekly to Nintendo eShop on the
Nintendo Switch console, the Wii U console and the Nintendo 3DS family
of systems.

Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety of
content, including new and classic games, applications and demos. Users
can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or
purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code
from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in Nintendo eShop
on Nintendo Switch, Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can
be used in any Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single
Nintendo Account.

Customers in the U.S. and Canada ages 18 and older can also link a
PayPal account to their Nintendo Account to purchase digital games and
content for the Nintendo Switch system both on-device and from the
Nintendo website. Once the accounts are linked, users may also use
PayPal as a payment option when buying digital content for the Wii U or
Nintendo 3DS family systems from the Nintendo website.

The Wii Shop Channel offers games and applications and uses Wii Points,
which can be purchased via the Wii Shop Channel.

Remember that Nintendo Switch, Wii U, Wii, New Nintendo 3DS, New
Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, New Nintendo 2DS XL, and
Nintendo 2DS feature parental controls that let adults manage some of
the content their children can access. Nintendo 3DS players who register
a Nintendo Network ID gain access to free-to-start games and free game
demos from Nintendo eShop, and also get the latest news and information
direct from Nintendo. For more information about this and other
