The Prices Of Digital Copies Of Nintendo Games Have Dropped – For Example, Breath Of The Wild Went Down By 500 Rubles

The day before Nintendo announced that they would reduce prices on its games in the Russian section of the electronic store shop. This was the case, and some games from third-party firms are also being cut in price.

In all honesty, reductions generally vary from 400 to 700 rubles. Here are a few examples:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – 6,299 5,799 rubles
  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – 6,299 , 5,799 rubles
  • Metroid Dread – 5,399 4,999 rubles,
  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons – 5,399, 4,999 rubles
  • Super Mario Odyssey – 5,399 4,999 rubles,
  • Shin Megami Tensei V – 5,399 4,999 rubles,
  • Captain Toad Treasure Tracker – 3,999 , 2,299 rubles
  • GTA The Trilogy – 5,399, 4,999 rubles
  • Overwatch – 3,999 3,299 rubles,
  • Diablo II Resurrected – 3,999 3,299 rubles.

This is not a discount for a short period as none of the games is currently part of any specific eShop offers.

Nintendo has promised to lower the cost of self-produced games. However, it appears that some of the partners are pricing their games according to the same way that Nintendo which is why you see the drop in synchronization rates in GTA the Trilogy and Blizzard games. The rules aren’t universal; it seems to be the case that the vast majority of games published by third-party companies have not modified prices in eShop.

Based on the comments of the president of Nintendo Russia, they decided to reduce it after several analysts forecast a decline in the exchange rate of the ruble against the euro over the next few months. Prices on the Russian eShop are dependent on the euro and the geographical area that Nintendo Russia is located in. Nintendo Russia is a reference to the European region. The Russian section of the digital store is operated through Nintendo in Europe located in Germany.
