My Nintendo Store is live with a ton of new products

The selection of physical items available on the My Nintendo Store seems to be quite large. For example, there are a number of hats and shirts based on various Nintendo properties such as “Super Mario”, “Animal Crossing”, “Metroid”, and “Splatoon”. The entire PUMA x Animal Crossing: New Horizons lineup appears to be available on the My Nintendo Store, along with most – if not all – of the LEGO Super Mario sets that have been released so far. This includes the Super Mario 64 “?” LEGO set, which was quite hard to find before the new year.

There are, of course, some items that look a little more out of left field, including a pair of throw pillows featuring “The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword” artwork. There’s even a “Super Mario Bros” stocking stuffer and various Build-A-Bear Workshop plushies based on characters from the “Animal Crossing” series.

You can also use the My Nintendo Store to purchase Switch consoles and accessories directly from Nintendo. While Nintendo has always offered Switch accessories direct to consumers, the fact that you can now order a Switch directly from Nintendo and cut out the middleman is a nice touch. As we mentioned at the start, you can even buy physical games from Nintendo, although the physical offerings seem to be limited to the company’s first-party games and some recent third-party releases.
