For a long time after its official launch, the Brazilian Nintendo eShop of the Switch had stable prices despite the high dollar over several months. That changed last year when new games launched at higher prices than the old ones.
Except for the happiness of Nintendo fans, most of the games that were already in the virtual store have not changed, at least until now. Today, many Brazilians have noticed that several games that were previously listed for R $ 250 in the eShop are now priced at R $ 300.
This is the same price as the launches, which leads us to believe that this will really be the new standard, regardless of the release date of the titles in the eShop. This goes, of course, for AAA games, since the smaller or indie games vary widely in their price ranges.
In case you are curious, the games that had this price adjustment were the following:
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Kirby Star Allies
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!
Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!
Pokkén Tournament DX
Super Mario Maker 2
Super Mario Odyssey
Super Mario Party
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
It cannot be said that this was a big surprise, since many Nintendo fans expected (and even feared) that this adjustment would happen at any time. We can only expect prices to drop if the dollar falls slightly in the future.
