Sad news for Nintendo fans in Thailand – the company’s two official stores in the country have been shuttered, as discovered by Nintendo Soup. Originally opened in December 2021, the company had two locations at JD Central and Lazada, which have both been closed according to Nintendo’s Thai website

This may have been tied to JD Central’s Thai subsidiary shutting down itself, which is extra concerning since the company’s joint venture WeJoin ran Nintendo’s official repair service in Thailand. It’s not known how this will affect Nintendo repairs in the country, though products from the company will continued to be released under its Southeast Asia distributor MaxSoft. 

Hopefully official clarification on this comes soon. It’d suck to leave an entire country’s fans high and dry.
