Hey, I'm from Europe and I made an American Nintendo account for specific sales. Do I need to purchase a Dollar gift card for that account instead of a Euro gift card? Or will it still work in the E-shop?

what if it is the other way around? im in japan and i want to buy Just Dance 2018 the prices that i saw there was in dollars 💵 coz i picked USA, can i use the codes from japan for buying? i don't wanna buy american codes online, i prefer buying the physical games online than just codes and load it in my account and then download it too much of a hassle

Perfect guide, thank you! In my country there is no eshop of Nintendo on 3DS. I had to create an account on UK eshop to buy digital games. Now I can create an account with my country and buy games from whatever region? Perfect! But I have a question, if I buy games from EU region, or Japan eshop, will I be able to change the language to English?

BigHairyMarty314 (6 months ago)
I just tried this. I was pleasantly surprised to see a Sonic Forces demo available in the Japanese eshop. Alas, it has a 1 minute limit on the three levels it provides, but it should still provide me with enough of a fix until payday, when I can buy a full game. :)
isaac Clarke (6 months ago)
I think certain banks charge you an international fee to convert your money, though I've been broke and haven't tried it. But I saw it in a thread. Anyone can enlighten me on that?

I deleted the Japanese account from my switch and the news still comes in Japanese how can I fix this?
TECuber (12 days ago)
The way to fix it is to go into maintenance mode and initialize the console and save data. It keeps your users, games, saves, screenshots and just resets settings. It might look risky but it's not.If it says to delete your sd card. It is ok. The date from before is still on there after you delete it. Hope this was helpful.
Sonic171000 (14 days ago)
Same. -.- Nintendo screwed us over. We would have to reset the system. Just to get it back to normal. We can't even back up our saves yet.
