Nintendo has just released a video which shows off the new-look eShop for the first time.

In case you somehow weren't aware, the eShop allows you to digitally purchase software for your Nintendo Switch and download it to the console's internal memory - or, if you have one inserted, a Micro SD card.

As has been previously confirmed, you'll be able to link your existing Nintendo Account to your Switch and use any funds you currently have in your wallet to download Switch software.

The eShop functionality will be enabled by a day one update, which will be downloaded and installed in the background when you turn on your shiny new console this Friday. Let us know what you think of it so far by leaving a comment below.
