Nintendo have announced that they have ended their partnership with Stadblauer, who previously distributed Nintendo titles in the country. The announcement came via the General Manager of Nintendo Germany, Bernd Fakesch, who stated that Nintendo will begin their own distribution network in favor of using another third party.
At this point it’s not clear whether Nintendo will form a Nintendo of Austria branch in order to handle distribution, or if these duties will fall under the umbrella of Nintendo of Europe/Germany. No specific reason was given for the dissolution of the partnership, so we don’t know whether this is because distribution of Nintendo titles in Austria was poor, or if the third party was charging too much for the services offered. Either way, this is likely good news for Nintendo fans in Austria.
