Nintendo is no doubt really keen to sell Switch in China, which could be potentially very lucrative indeed. Until then, Nintendo will have to make do with launching the handheld console in Hong Kong, which is an autonomous territory of China.

The Switch eShop for the Hong Kong region will launch on 3rd April and here's what games will be on offer:

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – HKD560 – Chinese support yes
1-2-Switch – HKD400 – Chinese support no
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – HKD480 – Chinese support yes
ARMS – HKD480 – Chinese support yes
Splatoon 2 (Japanese) – HKD480 – Chinese support no
Splatoon 2 (English) – HKD480 – Chinese support no
Pokkén Tournament DX – HKD480 – Chinese support no
Super Mario Odyssey – HKD480 – Chinese support yes
Snipperclips Plus: Cut it Out, Together! – HKD260 – Chinese support yes
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – HKD640 – Chinese support yes
Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle – HKD480 – Chinese support yes
Kirby Star Allies – HKD480 – Chinese support yes

And here's the DLC:

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Season Pass – HKD180 – Chinese support yes
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Season Pass – HKD230 – Chinese support yes

It's good to see lots of these games such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 arriving with Chinese language support. It's a bit strange that Splatoon 2 hasn't been translated, but residents of Hong Kong will be able to choose from the Japanese and English versions of the games, it seems.
