As announced earlier this year, Pandemic will not be available on the Nintendo eShop starting July 31. The initial digital game was released 9 years ago, and we no longer feel that the current quality and reliability is on par with what Pandemic deserves on digital platforms.

That’s why we have gradually removed existing Pandemic games published by Asmodee Digital from all digital stores. However, existing owners will not be affected: all players who have already purchased the game will still be able to play and download it.

Pandemic will still be available to play online in single player or multiplayer mode on Board Game Arena. We sincerely thank the Pandemic community for their tremendous support and participation over the years. Stay tuned! Teams Z-Man and Asmodee Digital
