Nintendo eShop Is Going To Improve Game Discoverability On Nintendo Switch Soon


In a recent interview with Eurogamer, Nintendo made it clear it is willing to improve several aspects of the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch, based on the much-appreciated feedback gathered from users.

Senior manager for publisher and developer relations Damon Baker commented indeed, during the GDC in San Francisco, that the Japanese company is aware of the fact many users have issues in finding the games they need and want.

“We’ve heard the feedback from yourselves, from fans, loud and clear, about the limitations of the Nintendo eShop”, Baker said as part of a press briefing at GDC 2018, attended by Eurogamer.

“I can assure you steps are being taken over the course of the year to improve the functionality in terms of discoverability and visibility, to highlight all of that great content.”

Despite this, last year Nintendo platforms sold more third-party digital games than copies at retailers. “This means we’re setting a very similar course to the likes of EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Take-Two – all those guys are 50-60 of their total revenue is digital.”
