The Nintendo eShop refers to any of three digital storefronts operated by Nintendo Company, Ltd., for games and add-on content on Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, and Switch systems. All eShops are units of the greater Nintendo Network suite of services.

As each eShop is tailored to its own hardware, the services available in each differ according to the target unit's capabilities and its region of origin. Content purchased for a 3DS or Wii U is currently bound to a user's Nintendo Network account, enabling easy transfers between systems of the same type. However, titles available in the Wii U eShop may not be available on the 3DS, and vice versa. The Switch added an eShop as of software update 2.0.0; and although a Virtual Console service was never made available for the unit, Nintendo and its developers have found other avenues to bring titles like Final Fantasy Adventure to the Switch platform.

Each eShop has an extensive catalog of Nintendo-published software, while third-party titles are rarer. The greater presence for the Final Fantasy series across all eShops rests with Japan as of February 2017, as nearly all titles originating on previous Nintendo hardware have been released. The North American Wii U eShop has only one series title in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance plus the joint Square/Nintendo collaboration Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.

As announced in February 2022, Nintendo plans to begin a gradual phase-out of the 3DS and Wii U eShops and their associated catalogues, to be completed by March of 2023. Existing users will no longer be able to add new content to either discontinued system, but may be able to re-download prior purchases excluding certain add-ons purchased in-game.
