Chapter in this post:
The Nintendo eShop is the digital store for games and software that can be installed on the Nintendo Switch, the Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS. Simply select a title, pay, download and play. If you want to give someone credit for the Nintendo eShop or treat yourself to something, then you have the chance to do so with the corresponding "Card" offers. You can easily buy a Nintendo eShop Card from Amazon, with a value of 15 to 100 euros. There are also offers with 3 or 12 months of online membership for additional content and functions.
The latest consoles from Nintendo are the Switch (2017, 2019) and the Switch as an OLED model (2021). The same games and the same software can be used on both, so the same eShop can be called up on both.
The credit on a Nintendo eShop Card can also be used for the previous generation of video game consoles, the Nintendo Wii U (2012).
Last but not least, you can use the money loaded in the shop account to load titles onto the handheld console Nintendo 3DS (2011) or onto the New 3DS (2014). You can choose from these amounts: 15 euros, 25 euros, 50 euros, 75 euros and 100 euros.
If you want to give away a little more for Christmas, you can buy a Nintendo online membership in addition to the eShop credit on the linked Amazon product page. This is a subscription for additional games, cloud storage for game data and other functions.
The basic configuration of the online service includes various games from the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES, 1986) and the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES, 1992). Depending on the amount of the voucher, you can choose 3 months or 12 months. Have fun browsing and giving away :)
