Buying directly from Nintendo is something people in Brazil haven’t been able to do for more than five years. Citing the country’s taxes at the time, Nintendo stopped direct sales in Brazil in 2015. Since then, consumers there have had to either import Nintendo products or buy them from a reseller. Last August, however, Brazillian President Jair Bolsonaro lowered import taxes on gaming hardware.
Provided the cost of the console doesn’t scare consumers away, Brazil offers a significant opportunity for Nintendo. After India, the US and China, the South American country is the fourth largest gaming market globally. That’s something that could help Nintendo build on the 61 million Switch units it has already sold.
