Switch eShop adding PayPal payment option
Posted on 1 day ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in 3DS eShop, News, Switch eShop, Wii U eShop | 27 Comments | 0 Likes
Update: The PayPal option has now been activated worldwide.
Original: The Switch eShop is adding a brand new payment option. Going forward, system owners will be able to use PayPal to add funds to their balance.
PayPal can’t be used directly with Wii U or 3DS. However, any game purchased on Nintendo’s website can be used with PayPal. That means if you’re purchasing a Switch, Wii U, or 3DS game on the site, PayPal is an option if you’re short on funds.
We are seeing the PayPal option on Switch in Japan at present. However, nothing appears to be live in North America or Europe. Today’s announcement did indicate that the PayPal option will be extended worldwide, so we’ll let you know if we see anything.

Hive Jump finally approved for Wii U, dev unsure about Switch port
Posted on 4 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop | 7 Comments | 0 Likes
It’s taken awhile, but Hive Jump has finally been approved for Wii U. The game made it through Nintendo’s certification process. The team is currently wrapping up some final things, and will be announcing a release date soon.
Graphite Lab has also commented on the possibility of a Switch port, though there isn’t much news at present. A decision hasn’t been made one way or another.
Here’s what was mentioned in the latest Kickstarter update about sticking with Wii U and potentially bringing Hive Jump to Switch:
You know, we got a lot of feedback telling us to give up on the Wii U version. With the Switch release being so successful, it may have seemed like a better move to pull a “switch’em” (pun intended) and change platforms. Why didn’t we? Because we know there are still over 800 of you that are excited to get your Hive Jump keys on Wii U and we didn’t want to let you down. We want to see you jumping hives and blasting bugs with the rest of the backers.
Will we bring Hive Jump to Switch? We don’t yet know. Our next item of business is to get you some physical rewards that we owe ya!

A bizarre discount has popped up over on Amazon. You can grab a Wii U code for PokePark Wii: Pikachu’s Adventure at a significant discount. It’s sold for $20 on the eShop, but is currently $6 on Amazon. That’s $14 in savings.
We have to assume that this is a price error, but Amazon will honor it. You can place an order here.
