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

 

I got Stardew Valley on steam so I'll skip that.

 

Needed Hollow Knight so I'm glad I got that one.

Tiny Metal is like half the price there I believe as well, or atleast it was when I got it a few months ago

 

Kind of a spiritual successor to Advance Wars, though I havent had much time to play it myself yet.

Was going to hold out for a physical release, but that's a tempting price.

Man need to pick this, Stardew Valley, and Paladins up. Can US eshop credit work if added when switched to Mexico? Would really like to use store credit then paypal.

No, when you switch your location on the webpage in your nintendo account settings, a page pops up explaining how it works.  Eshop credits you earn from buying games is tied to that region only.  I don't know about if you buy prepaid cards and such, cause I only use my credit card to buy things.

Can anyone link me to Stardew Valley and Hollow Knight? The browser keeps taking me to the US shop and I can’t find a search bar on the Mexican site.

You have to go thru the switch to buy them not ur browser. The browsers only to change country

It isn't a sale.  Those are the standard prices for Stardew and Hollow Knight on the Mexican eShop.  These base price disparities often happen between different regions and they can be taken advantage of.

When paying with US currency won’t you get some type of bank charges negating the savings, like PayPal fees for instance. That was always the case with those discounted eshop $10 for $7 cards imported from Europe or Russia. You’d pay $7 but your bank would tack on a $2 charge each time for foreign shopping or foreign currency.

The only fee is the high sales tax from Mexico. It's something like 15% I believe. The two games I bought ended up being like $.50 more.

*Edit* After checking again it might just be a difference in exchange rates or something. It doesn't look like I was even charged tax.

Some cards/banks have no exchange fee, those are the cards you want tied to the account.
Id switch for a few titles but i have credit on my account..

I went to the link you posted but that link seems to give you the best price in USA money out of all regions.  So I guess if I was interested in a game, I would go to that site, search the game and see which region it's the cheapest in and then add that to my Switch and buy it?  For example, Snipper Clips plus is cheapest in Japan and Hollow Knight is cheapest in Mexico.  I have to switch to each of those regions and buy from there to get the best price.  I would assume those games would be in that native language though correct?

Yes, you can reference that for prices. For most of the good deals, people end up mentioning it somewhere. For example, the shovel knight treasure box was really cheap on the Mexican eshop when switch first launched. There was a thread about it back then.

The language would be whichever language the game supports. So, all the games I bought on the mexican eshop are in English. I imagine there are only a few titles that may only support japanese. Also, you can use an American credit card on the Mexican eshop. But not on say the Russian eshop.

How often can you switch regions? I picked up Hollow Knight and Pocket Rumble and Crossing Souls is $7.86 for next week. Was just wondering if Nintendo would flag you.

I'll holding off on playing it until that free dlc drops next month. That Octopath deal from Target will hold me over!

That's the price on the eShop checker so far. Went up 1cent. Maybe a pricing error.
