Just a heads up. Games worth 15 all day but half off is better.


Just switch your country to Mexico and it's good to go.afterwards you can switch back to your country .Make sure you spend any money you have on your account I had to. Buy a .99 game but had pretty much enough gold close to cover it.

Because you lose it when you switch regions.

I have about $100 in eshop credit from the various cdkeys and ebay card sales...so...definitely DONT do this, right?

 

edit: nope, I can just make a second account. That only applies to switching your original account's region. Nevermind. Thanks OP! 

 

I'm assuming this will translate to English right? I know that for Monster Hunter XX if you downloaded the Japanese version, there was no English language option and you were screwed.

Also worth noting..paldins is like 13 and stardew valley and enter the dungeon all receive 50% off.

You could just make another account on the systen (I THINK) if you want want to exhaust your funds. I'm more of a psyical collector dont do digital really. so maybe someone else can shed some light on this

It wouldn't let me go over to Mexico UNTIL I got rid of the 2 cents in my wallet. I think you'd have to call to have them get rid of your funds other then spending it.

I guess I'll finally do this since I just spent the last of my credit. I missed out on $13 Paladins so I don't want to miss this.

FANTASTIC game and worth the wait on Switch.  If you can support the devs at $15 then do it, but $7.50 is good too!

I have to imagine this will be the sale price soon in the US eShop. It's already sold a ton, so if they see a big drop in sales, which is soon inevitable, they'll rush to put it on sale. $7.50 by the end of August - I'm calling it!

I did this successfully and then switched back, but the initial change to Mexico said it "unlinked me from my Nintendo Network ID"

I can't remember how to relink it (if I even care to as I don't even remember what this does)

 

Edit: Nevermind, I found where to relink it =)

ACKtually it's because currency conversion rates fluctuate daily, and credit isn't a forex service you can capitalize on by constantly switching regions. It's a funny joke, but it crosses into the "thanks Obama for making my cereal soggy" area.

Yes it does. I ended up just changing my Japanese account to Mexico, and linked my main account's PayPal to it. It purchased no problem, and now I'm ready for future "deals".

Can make a walk-through on how to do this? I thought you couldn't use a US based PayPal in a different country?

From what I recall weren’t Mexicans passed that other countries were taking advantage of this since Nintendo went and jacked up their prices?

Stardew Valley and a few others are better priced in peso. I grabbed Dragons Blaze, but it was only a little cheaper.
