Topic: Can I play any region's games on Hong Kong switch?

Posts 1 to 5 of 5


I just got my Switch Lite, and on the box it says: "Hong Kong Official Product". The seller did not mention this at all, I'm wondering are there any disadvantages or limitations, can I play games released in other region's or no?



Games are region-free on Switch.

A Switch produced in Hong Kong will play North American games and vice versa.

Yes, as long as you downloaded it and it appears on your home menu. However, if you went to another region and tried to purchase a game in a certain location, a credit card issued from your previous region will not work.

@markmarkmark That's not strictly true. A regular card issued by a high street bank will generally only work on the the eShop region it's issued in, but there are cards available that will work in any region - I use the same card registered for eShop accounts in Japan, Norway, South Africa and Poland (previously Russia) without any issues.



The difference is if it let say is JPN voice/txt then you will have to be fluent in JPN to play the game.
