Topic: Nintendo Switch Online App in Israel?

Posts 1 to 1 of 1


Recently, out of curiosity, I was checking the availability of Nintendo's mobile apps in various countries via iTunes. To my surprise, I discovered that the Nintendo Switch Online app is already available on Israel's official App Store.

I originally believed this implied that Nintendo may be planning to officially launch the Nintendo Switch Online service for Nintendo Switch owners in Israel.

I even attempted to check online for any confirming information (in the English language, at least) about such a launch, but I could not find any. Going through the Hebrew FAQ on the official Nintendo Israel website, however, I realised it was a direct translation of the support text from Nintendo UK's website. This makes me believe that Nintendo of Europe may have released the app for Israel as a convenience so that Nintendo Switch owners can still use the app's features for the Nintendo Switch Online service, albeit the service they may be using is based on a different country.

(Many gamers who play the Nintendo Switch or other consoles in countries where Nintendo has little or no direct involvement would usually register their accounts as a different country without any repercussions.)

What do you guys think of the fact the Nintendo Switch Online app is available in Israel, even though the service itself is not?

Wishing this world would pay any sort of attention to the smaller details.
