imageNintendo of Korea has made great strides in South Korea by hiring local celebrities including Girls Generation and partnering with MapleStory developer Nexon. Nintendo also localizes games into Korean such as Resident Evil: Revelations and The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time 3D. Korean versions of New Super Mario Bros. 2, Style Savvy: Trendsetters, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and Mario Tennis Open are in the works.


That’s a big step forward, but not every game can be localized. Nintendo of Korea’s solution is to release English and Japanese games as eShop downloads. Essentially it’s a digital import store and Nintendo has a huge line up of titles.
