Nintendo Switch online shops will be region free, too

Nintendo Switch Parental Controls

The Nintendo Switch is a region free console. During the reveal event last week, Nintendo announced that they were dropping region restrictions. Without clarification, most assumed this applied to the console and the game’s cartridges. It goes further than that, though.

The Nintendo Switch’s digital stores are also region free. You just need to connect a country to your account. Even better news? Each console can support eight accounts.

The official news comes from Nintendo while speaking with Kotaku.

The Nintendo Switch system is not region locked, but we recommend that players buy games within their region to ensure full service and support. The user will access the Nintendo eShop that corresponds to the country identified in their Nintendo Account. (Up to eight user accounts can be created on a single Nintendo Switch system.)
