Looks like Nintendo is finally catching up with the times. The company has announced that soon Nintendo eShop will support purchases made via PC or mobile device.
The news comes a NicoNico report. Translated material reveals Nintendo's plans to expand their "digital business." So says president Satoru Iwata.
“It is crucial for expanding profitable opportunities,” he stated, and reaffirmed the company's plans to move forward on the digital front. This will allow the eShop catalog greater exposure, not to mention sales. Hey, just look at Animal Crossing: New Leaf. A quarter of the game's sales came from downloads about six months after it was released.
PC and mobile support will be added later this year. Additionally, Nintendo will be implementing a new system that will allow players to manage their Nintendo Network accounts using a PC or smartphone.
