I do it on the My Nintendo site under the settings. I have a second account that I constantly swap between regions to buy games. So far I have used it on Japan, Mexico, and like 1 or 2 other shops without any issues.

So on your 2nd account you swap the regions?
Only issue i see is that the games would be tied to the 2nd account, if N does do anything about the region swapping youd probably lose access to thise games. Possible, but we are talking N here.
I ended up making a JP and EU account for the demos i couldnt get here..

I've swapped my main account to Mexico a couple times without issue. Whose to say I don't have a second home in Mexico that I visit regularly and bring my switch along? Nintendo isn't going to be banning accounts for this.

Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised by how laid back they have been in regards to region free, and they seem to be the best around, as this has been for me their best feature of the NS so far. So I don't see them changing this either, as there really is no point, as they said region free before hand, and it actually seems that way across the board.

"N" has an E3 survey out, that is asking about E3, and what you liked and what you didn't, etc. Let your opinions be heard.

 

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5BHGBGX

 

EDIT: Well, that was an abysmal survey, as they needed none of the above for each question, as I had no interest in any of what was shown. Good to see "N" showing interest in gamers opinions, but that survey was about as useless as the old CN ones used to be. Oh well, step forwards at least..............

I redeemed a $50 eshop card a while back and still haven't been able to spend it so I can do these things. :wall:

Same here, bery easy to create the non US accounts and use on my switch.

Only real problem i see, if developers complain about the sales from places like mexico.. where they probably get less from a sale than in other countries.
Dunno, maybe they get the same amount regardless.

Hollow Knight for 15 at launch is a steal- no idea why it’s priced so low for a beatiful game with critical acclaim.

If you change your region to Mexico it only costs $7.24!

This is why I hate this place some times.

They definitely don't get the same amount. How could they? It's not like Nintendo is paying the extra, or somehow the conversion multiplies the money.

 

They're just trying to not be dicks and price it appropriately for regions, and people take advantage of it. Already in the past we've seen people abuse it and it causes developers/publishers to raise the price in that region, screwing over people who actually live there. Just be smart about it.

 

(Incoming economist response letting me know that they shouldn't price it that low if they don't want people to abuse it)

I spent a few years in the past living/working in a developing nation that did not have its own region-specific store from Sony/Microsoft and I think its either really dick or really ignorant on their part.  When the average person is making the equivalent of $500 bucks a month or something you really should cater to that market and not expect them to pay 5% of their monthly salary on an indie game.  Good on Nintendo for this, furthermore it ultimately curbs piracy which is better for everyone involved.

What’s the issue? It was either never buy it so no sale in any region or pay $7.24 for it, which I assume they are OK with or they wouldn’t price it that low there.

For those interested, the Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion seem great. It's essentially a remix of the gameplay with tons of new assets and story. Not to know the Zelda DLC but this seems substantially more robust for an extra 5 bucks.

As disappointed as I was with the games announced on E3, I am having a lot of fun with three of the games- Paladins, Hollow Knight and Fortnite. I was starting to use my Switch less and less but those three games brought me back in. At first I didn't want to pay to beta test Paladins but I was itching for a Overwatch style game to play. It is very fun and had to peel myself away so I can go to sleep at a decent hour. 

 

Now there are about 40 games on my wish list that need to go on sale today. Nintendo better come with the goods.....no way its going to happen

I mean, they did for everything else...


So it’s a normal practice for indies to jack up the launch price of their Switch games compared to Steam and the other consoles? Never knew that.

Paladins is FTP most places, right? All I saw in the E-shop is some version that costs 30 bucks but I'd try it for free if they have that version too.

I think it makes sense money wise for them because switch has a big user base with a games library that’s still being built up, so many ports or releases are hitting a million sales quickly because of the need for new games. I think I read that fortnite already hit 2 million downloads.

It's $30 for the Founder's pack which unlocks all current and future characters (maybe other things?) and gives you access immediately. Total FTP is coming later in summer. 

 

FYI, it's only $13 if you buy it via the Mexican eShop.

Yes, as illatwill said, 9am PT. However, Europe has listed all their deals, and usually they tend to mirror US most of the time.

 

Here's a link to the list of their deals (halfway down the page). 

 

https://nintendoever...-e3-deals-more/

 

Besides Breath of the Wild and Splatoon 2 which we new were coming, there's not much new for Switch, mostly repeats (although Fire Emblem Warriors is on sale and I don't think it has been before). But for those who missed out on Golf Story and Blossom Tales, those are on sale again.

I've been playing Blossom Tales this week after getting it last time it was on sale. I'm enjoying it quite a lot!

Dang, nothing I'm really interested in...

 

Switching region to Mexico I can get games cheaper? I've been wanting to pick up Stardew Valley but didn't want to play full price.

I don't think ALL of them are cheaper, but you can definitely save on some. I grabbed Paladins on there the other night for $13, then switched back to US and entered the code to unlock everything with no issues. That's the first one I've done though so I can't speak to any long term ramifications, but I haven't seen anyone speak up saying anything has happened to their accounts or anything.

Was really hoping for Hyrule Warriors or Bomberman. Womp. Good prices but I personally already own most of them. I am tempted to get Fire Emblem Warriors as a replacement but I feel the only reason I care to play another musou is with an IP I love like Zelda.
