Russians can no longer create new accounts in the Nintendo eShop digital store, specifying Russia as the user’s country.

The company also disabled its official site, intended for clients from Russia.

At the same time, to fulfill existing obligations, from May 31, Russian customers who already have a Nintendo account will be able to re-download previously purchased digital content.

At the same time, the payment information associated with Nintendo accounts (credit card data or PayPal account data) of such users has already been removed for security reasons.

The company, after the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022, suspended the sale of goods to Russia, and the Nintendo eShop digital store was transferred to technical maintenance due to the termination of processing of transactions in rubles by payment services.

In this regard, as well as taking into account the economic forecasts, the company Nintendo of Europe has decided to close the activities of its Russian branch.
