Nintendo Australia To Service New Zealand

kiwiflag.jpgEarlier this year, things looked grim for Softprint, the distributor of Nintendo (and Activision) wares in New Zealand. Then, last month, the company handed in the towel, leaving our Rugby-loving neighbours high and dry.

Now, NZGamer is reporting that Nintendo Australia will be stepping in to save the day, with a representative stating it would “like to assure gamers in New Zealand that [it is]currently sorting everything to make this change happen”. Sounds like good news to me, but I’d like to hear how those across the Tasman feel about the move.
