It seems almost unthinkable for a major website to leave out one of the most vital methods of site navigation in 2022. Yet after launching digital games on its online web store in December 2021, Nintendo Australia neglected to allow users to search for specific games. That means for a good four months or so, users were limited to browsing for games in areas like charts, sales, and recent releases. Naturally, this meant that hundreds, if not thousands, of games were effectively inaccessible to users of the web store - not ideal.
After some site maintenance, it seems Nintendo Australia has finally joined the modern age and implemented search functionality for its digital game catalogue. We've quickly tested it out ourselves; searching for a game will bring up two tabs, Physical Products and Digital Games, so if the site doesn't stock any physical products for a specific game, you can be sure they'll at least have the digital version available.
While it may seem a rather superfluous update for those outside of Australia, we're hopeful this change from Nintendo will alleviate what we imagine to be a frustrating experience on the company's web store.
Let us know if you've tried using Nintendo's Australian web store for digital games recently, and if this new update will improve things for you!
We are used to technological stone age treatment here in Australia.
Nintendo's statement: It was there all along, just nobody found it. If you want google, just google google.
Why would we need a "web store"?
We have enough bloody spiders down here!
It took them this long?
I guess you can say that Australia is always, upside down!
It sounds great until you realize that no matter what you search for, the only response will always be Kao the Kangaroo.
Man, I wish nintendo has nintendo eshop on ios appstore like sony, I can even buy ps4/ps5 games on the playstation app on ios.
Oh Nintendo, it's okay to not understand the internet and being scared of it..but Y2k was awhile ago, can we get normal functionality like being able to gasp send text messages?
It's scary when a smart refrigerator can do more than a console made for setting up matches and playing with friends..but ya know, lacks the simple things like allowing a "hey what's up?" text message to be sent.
Nintendo Australia is and has always been an absolute joke being run out of a tin shed somewhere.
I wonder if they develop an entire website from scratch for each country. Why aren't they all the same?
