Nintendo will add the ability to purchase eShop games on PCs and smartphones, according to Nintendo's Business Development Manager Dan Adelman.

While Adelman tells Joystiq he's not "personally directly involved" with the project, he confirmed that players will be able to "log onto the site and set [purchases] up for download so that once they get home, it'll be available for them and they can have that at their fingertips whenever they need it."

Adelman's confirmation follows a NicoNico report with translation provided by Siliconera that notes the system will be open to PC and smartphone users later this year.
