The selection of games is quite...limited.

Have you ever wanted to buy digital games for Nintendo systems from a seller besides Nintendo?

Well, you can now. Amazon has opened up what is fundamentally their very own version of the Nintendo eShop.

You can buy digital versions of Wii U, 3DS, and even Wii games. The way it works is that you sign into your Nintendo Network account and then you click the “redeem” button and the game will be sent directly to the device in which you bought the game for.

The selection of games available on the Amazon shop are a little limited at the moment, only offering up first-party titles such as Punch-Out! and Kirby Triple Deluxe like Nintendo’s very own browser based eShop. Once the Amazon eShop start offering other titles besides Nintendo’s, it’ll definitely be a good alternate for those who don’t really like checking out the official Nintendo eShop.

For now, we’ll just have to wait but with the current selection, do any games catch your eyes?
