In a new statement, Nintendo has confirmed to have officially halt product shipments to Russia.
Nintendo told media outlet Eurogamer in a statement that it will now cease product shipments to Russia after the Ukraine invasion happened. However, the statement did not mention anything of the invasion or anything war-related.
The only thing Nintendo reasoned for stopping shipments to Russia was due to the logistics of the situation.
“We have decided to suspend shipping all Nintendo products to Russia for the foreseeable future,” a Nintendo spokesperson told Eurogamer. “This is due to considerable volatility surrounding the logistics of shipping and distributing physical goods.
“In addition, Nintendo eShop in Russia is currently under maintenance following the suspension of transactions in Russian rubles by the payment provider.”
Recently, Nintendo delayed the launch of upcoming video game reboot Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp. There was no new release date announced by Nintendo and that fans will only have to wait until further notice.
