Japanese players can now purchase eShop content from any computer. Well…as long as it’s DLC for Mario Kart 8, that is.

Nintendo has just opened up its first web-based eShop; the website is only available for those with Japanese Nintendo Network accounts, however. The service only has four content listings: the Mercedes-Benz DLC Pack for Mario Kart 8, the two new Mario Kart 8 DLC packs, and the bundle containing both paid DLC packs. There is currently no word as to whether this service will be updated with additional content or made available for other regions.

Our Verdict

Elijah Holt
Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
