Nintendo has detailed the three ways in which consumers will be able to purchases digital games for the 3DS. Andriasang reports that gamers have three options.
Firstly, they can download the game directly onto their machine from the Nintendo eShop. Simple. Secondly, they can buy a code from an online retailer which can then be input into their console.
Thirdly, they will also have the option of buying a physical card from a retailer which itself contains a code. These will be redeemable for 150 days from the date of purchase.
And then, of course, there’s always the option with high-profile titles of buying an actual game in an actual box from an actual shop. Like we did in the ‘90s.
New Super Mario Bros 2, which is out on August 17th, will be the first Nintendo title to launch digitally at the same time that it hits High Street retail.
