Nintendo faces problems with full game downloads


Yesterday, Nintendo allowed for full game downloads in their home country, Japan, which also concided with the release of New Super Mario Bros 2 in the area. However, it did not turn out well. No one in the region could download the game, for hours. Nintendo said that the problems have been cleared up, but still, some people missed the game on launch because of these problems, which are commonplace in the online era of gaming.

When the game releases on August 19 on the other regions, along with Nintendo’s new 3DS XL handheld, keep in mind the issues Japan faced. There’s a lot of time to iron them out until August, but be aware of the risks.
