Amazon and Nintendo unveiled a new partnership that gives Nintendo gamers more access to purchase the content they desire.

Starting this morning, you can now purchase over 60 Nintendo eShop titles directly from the Amazon website.

The process couldn’t be any simpler. Find the game you wish to purchase, complete the checkout process, and the game will automatically be pushed to your device.

This offers some unique benefits as well.

First off, you don’t have to fumble through the eShop for harder to find titles. Just use your computer or phone and in a couple clicks, you’re done.

Secondly, you can use your Amazon credit or gift cards towards the purchases, giving more value to those gift cards.

And finally, Amazon is known for its discounts, so although they are priced the same as eShop titles normally, one would have to imagine we will see some Amazon sales at some point.

What do you think about the news? I don’t know about you, but I think I’ll do a lot of my eShop purchasing through this new program with Amazon.

  2. Now this is a cool idea. The eShop, as much as I like it, is a pain compared to shopping with a web browser. PLUS if you have Amazon ecertificates now you have a new thing to spend them on. Sweet.
