The Nintendo Switch Finally Makes Its Way to Brazil

Nintendo has not officially distributed goods and services in Brazil since 2015, but that will be coming to an end soon.

The Nintendo Switch, which was released over three years ago is making it to the land that gave us Pelé, the thong, Carnival, cheap plastic surgery, and my personal favorite, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Importation tariffs in Brazil can range anywhere from 20% to 50%, which made the cost of doing business in the country cost prohibitive for Nintendo.

Nintendo fans in Brazil have been forced to import or purchase through shady resellers. However, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro lowered taxes on games on 2019, giving Nintendo the opportunity to re-enter Brazil, which is the world’s 8th largest economy.

This is indeed a cause for celebration.
