If you’re interested in buying a Nintendo game digitally, you have a couple of different options.

Nintendo Switch

During Nintendo’s 80th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, president Shuntaro Furukawa commented on the system’s success. He explained that the Switch Lite’s release played a big role. Additionally, Nintendo is able to focus all development efforts on a single platform rather than two at once. Right now, Nintendo is looking at extending the Switch’s life cycle.

Director and senior executive officer Ko Shioda also noted that Nintendo focuses on fun experiences instead of the technical power of the console. He said that the number of families playing together on Switch reaffirms the value of having a dedicated gaming console.

Super Nintendo World isn’t opening this summer as originally planned. Universal Studios and Nintendo originally hoped to have everything ready in time for the 2020 Olympics, but it simply wasn’t possible due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Universal Studios Japan provided an update today, officially confirming that Super Nintendo World will not open this summer – which is hardly surprising. The theme park could debut this fall, though Nikkei reports it could be pushed back to 2021 depending on what takes place with coronavirus infections going forward.
