Fanatical has announced that Nintendo has joined the retailer in the UK and Europe. Going forward, fans in these regions can purchase digital Switch and 3DS titles on the company’s website.

Craig Johnson, managing director of Fanatical and Focus Multimedia said of today’s news:

“We’re delighted to have Nintendo on the Fanatical Store alongside our other valued publishers. With the acquisition of EU region titles from a prestigious name such as Nintendo, our customers now have access to an even larger array of quality games at competitive prices.”

“Providing officially licensed games and not dealing within the grey key market is paramount to our brand, rewarding the hard-working publishers, developers and partners that we work with, as well as providing our customers with top quality products. This partnership shows our intent to be one of the leading digital entertainment retailers, and we look forward to working closely with Nintendo – and potentially even more partners in the near future.”

Fanatical is taking pre-orders for both Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. Currently, reservations come with a 10 percent discount.

As for other regions – including the United States – Fanatical says it is “hoping to expand regions out in the future”.
