For all of our visitors in Greece, or who rely on the country in order to purchase Nintendo titles, looks like you’ll have to take your business elsewhere.
Nortec Multimedia S.A, the group who’s responsible for distributing Nintendo’s games and services across the country has formally announced that the decision has been made to cease operations, as of December 31st of this year.
Here’s the report:
DEAR PARTNERS AND FRIENDS,
AS YOU ALL KNOW, NORTEC MULTIMEDIA WITHSTOOD THE RELENTLESS ECONOMIC CRISIS WHICH AFFECTS OUR COUNTRY OVER THE LAST SIX YEARS. EVEN TODAY THE COMPANY IS HEALTHY AND OPERATES WITHOUT LOANS.
HOWEVER, A NUMBER OF IMPORTANT TRADE ISSUES WITHNINTENDO OBLIGE TO PUT AN END TO OUR LONG-TERM COOPERATION. THEREFORE, WITH GREAT SADNESS WE INFORM YOU THAT OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH NINTENDO ENDS ON 12/31/2015.
WE WOULD LIKE TO EXPRESS OUR GRATITUDE TO ALL OUR PARTNERS FOR THE HEARTY AND CONTINUOUS SUPPORT OVER THE YEARS AND OF COURSE ALL CONSUMERS AND FANS OF OUR PRODUCTS. ALSO, WE WISH NINTENDO THE BEST FOR ITS FUTURE PLANS AND ACTIVITIES IN GREECE, CYPRUS AND THE BALKANS.”
For all of our Greek visitors, on the behalf of the entire Nintendo Enthusiast staff, I extend condolences to you over this situation.
