Nintendo Pulls User Reviews From eShop

Earlier this week, Nintendo launched a new user review system on its eShop so fans could leave feedback and scores about their game purchases. But, the company pulled the feature this morning. Now, when people visit a game's product page, they see the following message:

"Customer reviews have been taken offline as we evaluate this feature and its functionality. We currently have no estimated date on when an update will be provided. We appreciate the positive response and thank the reviewers who provided such thoughtful commentary on the games."

In a statement to Kotaku, Nintendo says adding user reviews to the eShop was just a trial:

"Nintendo.com recently offered a trial customer review feature to let users share feedback about Nintendo Switch games on our website. The response has been positive, and Nintendo appreciates the time and effort that reviewers put into their thoughtful commentary on the games. Nintendo has removed this feature as we evaluate the future of the ratings functionality on Nintendo.com. We have no estimate on when an update will be provided on the status of this initiative, but we appreciate the enthusiasm shown for the trial." 

(Thanks, Kotaku!)
