Video game fans in the UK will be glad to have a more convenient way to purchase Nintendo products, as the company’s UK online store is now live (hat/tip Polygon).

To entice customers, Nintendo is offering free standard delivery (2-3 days) on every single product it sells. An additional perk: if you spend more than £200 ($319) and place an order by 8pm, you will get your product delivered to you the next day for free.

The UK online store will also stock limited edition products periodically, such as the Nintendo 3DS XL Pokémon consoles. It is also giving customers a 12-month extended warranty for every console it sells.
