Amazon UK Reveals New-Look eShop Cards

Posted by Damien McFerran

Available in £15, £25 and £50 denominations

Amazon UK has posted listings for the new-look Nintendo eShop cards.

The cards are available in £15 (Toad), £25 (Luigi) and £50 (Mario) flavours, with the larger edition presumably intended to cover the cost of retail Wii U eShop titles.

The cards can be used on your Wii, Wii U, 3DS and DSi. According to Amazon they're not actually available yet, nor is any release date given. Even so, we have to say the designs are very appealing indeed.

Will you be keeping your eyes out for these?

Hmm. I've never bought one of these for any kind of Nintendo points. I'm guessing I couldn't just buy a £50 one and then split it between Wii VC and 3DS VC stuff?

I know it's not THAT important but it would be nice to just have one account with a single credit amount on that you could use between all the consoles, like Apple do with Itunes and the App store.

I would really like to merge my 3DS and WiiU credit. I understand it's not simple to include Wii but it's so annoying I have to get a €15 card for a €10 game on Wii..
Were they planning on merging the accounts with the 3DS update?

I want to buy stuff from the 3DS store but prepaid cards are not available where I live. Why is it so hard to release them in all Europe?

So cute! But I wonder who buys those? Ain't it easier just using the credit card?
Maybe it's directed at kids whose parents won't let them use their cards?

@FernandoMachado
I think you hit the nail on the head - people without credit cards. That said, I'll be keeping an eye on promotions in case it's ever cheaper than using a card.

I buy my eShop cash off of PlayAsia (my debit and credit card don't work on there. No Canadian/Brazilian workaround for my NA 3DS D:) and those cards are killing me with their adorableness.

I guess I will only see the Toad ones, since here in Holland only 2 shop-chains sell e-cards. And the shop in my area only has 15 Euro cards!!
