Independent games retailers are now able to sell digital games for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.
The service is being provided by CentreSoft subsidiary DLCSoft, which already lets indies sell digital PlayStation games. Nintendo games will be available from mid-July.
In an email seen by MCV, DLCSoft said that it is going to be a great service and that it believes the addition of content from Nintendo’s eShop will allow retailers to establish their stores as a true digital destination on the High Street.”
A variety of content will be available when it launches later this month, including both 3DS and Wii U titles. Consumers will be able to purchase both full games and digital-only eShop titles. Included in this are some of the retro re-releases such as The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros.
DLCSoft started selling Sony digital codes last November and to date they have been very popular with independent retailers. It was one of the factors in CentreSoft being voted the best high street distributor in last year’s MCV Retail Survey.
