Nintendo departed the Brazil market in early January 2015. Games for Nintendo systems have been impossible to get legally for a decent price since hen, but now things are changing.

 

Coming from Vice Brazil

NC Games, a local importer for games in Brazil, will bring Nintendo games again. The official report comes from a register in the Diário Oficial da União (basically the “Federal Register”), indicating that the games are in the process of age rating and close to get into stores.

The list of the games registered are:

  • 1-2 Switch (Switch)
  • Mario Party Star Rush (3DS)
  • Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon (3DS)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)
  • Mario & Luigi Paper Jam (3DS)
  • Fire Emblem Fates Birthright (3DS)
  • Kibry: Planet Robot (3DS)

Other games not listed are Bomberman R and Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers, which NC Games is in negotiation with Konami and Capcom.

But not all the games will be exclusive to be distributed with NC Games. Ubisoft works in Brazil and will be the official distributor for Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle.

They’re still studying the market for prices and expect to put the games into stores costing R$330 to R$400 (US$90+ to US$120). They didn’t talk about the console price.

This is excellent news for Nintendo fans in Brazil. This is a market that could be great for Nintendo and this opens up so many possibilities. Hopefully this foray into Brazil goes better than their previous attempt. Right now, this is a good start.
