It was only a matter of time, but it seems the price of cheap games on the Nintendo eShop is about to come to an abrupt end. It’s a well known fact that South Africa is one of the cheapest eShop territories in the world and as such we have seen plenty Switch owners flocking to the South African store to buy their games.
