In recent weeks, I’ve had to access the Nintendo Switch eShop of four regions in order to use review code provided by publishers. Thankfully, accessing the Nintendo Switch eShop in other countries is much easier on the Nintendo Switch than other platforms.
It’s worth having multiple eShops on your Nintendo Switch due to the fact that we’ve already seen digital titles releasing in Europe, Japan and America before Australia. For instance, The Binding of Isaac, World of Goo and Little Inferno released in these other regions before actually coming to Australia.
CREATING A NEW NINTENDO ACCOUNT
For each region, you’ll need to create a new Nintendo Account. Head to accounts.nintendo.com and choose to sign up for a new account. You’ll need to enter your date of birth, choose a nickname, email address and passport.
