Japanese gamers can purchase special products not available at most retailers.
Today Nintendo opened the doors to its own online sales shop.
For those that reside in Japan, the store offers products for Nintendo's current line of systems, including Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS. The store contains products which would not normally be found at retailers, such as replacement game manuals (which retail at ¥105 each) and replacement parts.
The store also contains products for the Game Boy Advance and Gamecube. The store does not ship internationally, but Nintendo of America has had a similar store for a number of years.
