Nintendo phas announced that accounts linked with Epic Games accounts can no longer be used to make purchases on the Nintendo eShop. This is due to the ongoing legal battle between the two companies, which has resulted in Epic Games removing its games from the Nintendo eShop.

If you have a Nintendo account that is linked with an Epic Games account, you will still be able to access your purchased games and content. However, you will not be able to make any new purchases on the Nintendo eShop.
