Nintendo eShop Update Finally Lets You Search Using A Variety of Filters

Good first steps Nintendo, but there’s still a long way to go.

The Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo Switch is really bare bones. Not in terms of content, of which there is a lot, but rather, in terms of organization and searching options offered to players. The good news is, a new update made to it addresses that latter point to some degree.

The new update for the Nintendo eShop lets users search for games based on a variety of filters and criteria, from game genre and price to whether or not the game has any DLC available, or whether or not there is a demo for the game (an easy way to search for demos if you’re short on funds but still want to see what title you may want to invest in in the future).

The original search options and filters that have been available on the eShop since the Switch’s launch last March through to now are all also available, just in case you liked those more. For whatever reason.

Next up—increase discoverability and maybe offer better organization options on the main store page itself. It’s good to see Nintendo at least following up on its promise to try and improve the eShop, however.
