Switch eShop is back up

Posted on 2 years ago by in News, Switch eShop | 0 comments

Some of you may have been having issues trying to download Splatoon 2 earlier because of the influx of people trying to purchase the game. However, it seems that the eShop is back up running again as intended. If you were having issues getting Splatoon 2 you might want to try again right now.

Since last year, it’s been possible for North American and Japanese users to redeem eShop download codes without turning on their Wii U or 3DS. Unfortunately, European Nintendo fans have had to wait a while for that feature to become available in their region. That time has now come – visit this URL, log in with a European NNID and you can start entering download codes. Pre-ordering games and remotely downloading them still doesn’t work, but hopefully that’s a feature that will be added in the near future.

Last week, we reported on Tappingo coming to Europe soon, with the exception of Germany, where the game will not be released likely in part due to the cost of having to acquire an age rating for Germany in addition to the PEGI rating required for the rest of Europe. However, situations like that might soon be a thing of the past. GoNintendo reports that the Nintendo eShop, in addition to other platforms, will join the IARC (International Age Rating Coalition), which allows to developers to more easily obtain appropriate age ratings for various regions simply be filling out a form. In an increasingly globalized marketplace, this is certainly a welcome option.

It might be a while before this has a tangible benefit for Nintendo platforms, but it’s definitely a step in the right direction. We’ll keep you updated on further developments.
