Nintendo is pulling out of Brazil. The company announced yesterday that it will no longer distribute products there due to the country's high tariffs on electronics, despite its "many passionate fans" that live there.2

Nintendo officially blames "challenges in the local business environment," including "high import duties…and our decision not to have a local manufacturing operation." They'll continue to distribute products elsewhere in South America, but for Brazil, Mario, Link and Pikachu are now effectively out of reach.

A big blow to any Nintendo fans from Brazil.
