According to a recent Nico Nico news report, Nintendo is interested in expanding their digital business market by allowing you to purchase games on your Nintendo account through your PC or smartphone. Nintendo officials have stated that:
By the end of the year, the system will be expected to launch and [games] can be purchased through any PC or smartphone through account management.
This comes as no surprise since one-quarter of Animal Crossing’s total sales so far have come from the digital version.
Nintendo has also stated that they will continue their support of Miiverse as a social networking type of application, which are common in most smartphones.
