Nintendo Officially Leaves Brazil


Recommended Posts






Brazilian division of the Video Juegos Latinoamérica has ceased distribution of Nintendo products in Brazil -- ending a four-year partnership. Nintendo has not named a replacement distributor.

Nintendo cites the country's high import tariffs and other unspecified challenges with the local business environment as reasons for the withdrawal. For instance, the Wii U launched at a cost of R$1899, or about $830 USD. Games sold for R$179 to R$199, or $77 to $87 USD.



"Brazil is an important market for Nintendo and home to many passionate fans but unfortunately challenges on the local business environment have made our current distribution model unsustainable in the country," says Director and General Manager of Latin America at Nintendo of America, Bill van Zyl.


As a Brazilian, i'm very sad!
