Topic: Witcher 3 language pack failed?

I downloaded the language pack, but there seems to be no change in the game's options.
It seems like it mustn't have installed, but how can I check, or retry?
I go to eshop and it says Purchased, no option to redownload.

What can I do?

In Australia, need Chinese subs. Should be available through language pack.

@Tober27 Have you rebooted the console? Nintendo support mentions rebooting the console when changing system languages. I know you're not changing your system language, but a reboot may be required for your new language pack to activated.

@WoomyNNYes Thank you. Yes, that installed the Polish language pack. Unfortunately, I was under the impression it included multiple subtitles, with Chinese. It does not.
I find it to be ridiculous that multiple subtitles are not included in the only language pack available.

@Tober27 Have you tried pushing + on the software and updating it?

@Tober27 Yeah, it's tough to predict which languages will get support with individual games. With many games, it's kind of a gamble - depending on where games are developed and their intended market. And while developing a game, they don't know if the game will be a success, and maybe won't have the budget to support a wide array of languages. I know with the Switch, China has been picking and choosing which games to allow to be sold in the country, politics can be a factor. But I don't know if that's a factor with Witcher 3.

@WoomyNNYes If Chinese subtitles had not been produced, I would understand it. But they do exist, and are available on Switch in other regions. In Australia, I cannot have access to them.
They should be included or available in another language pack.

@Tober27 Oh really? That is odd. If that's the case, then maybe you could change your Ninetndo account to US or UK? then get the Chinese subtitles? Then change your account back to AUS. There may be a less messy way to do that, but I don't know an easier way.

EDIT: Changing your account region on nintendo's website, is what I'm talking about. For clarity.

@WoomyNNYes It does not work. Language packs from other regions are not compatible. You would have to repurchase the game. It is a mess and makes no sense. I don't know of other games that have this problem, but it is definitely the case with Witcher 3 on Switch.

@Tober27 You said being in Australia is restricting your access to the Chinese. If you already own the game, maybe deleting and re-downloading with with a non-AUS account could do it. The Switch is a region free console. When you change your country/region on your Nintendo account on Nintendo's website, that's all the Switch cares about. If you change it to US, EU, UK, then officially, then you get everything that region gets. So, if you change you change your account to country that you know has the Chinese subtitles, you should be able to get subtitles.

If the Chinese subtitles exist, I think Nintendo customer service could help you. I've never heard of someone not being able to get a language pack(if it was created). Nintendo customer service helps people with regional issues, and to get the language packs (if it was created). I don't know if you have access is to a Nintendo customer service phone line, or their customer service messenger (Nintendo support messenger is available in some regions from Nintendo's contact page).

So, I'm optimistic, here.

Well almost a year later, and they never really fixed the problem with the Complete Edition.
They have, however, released a standard edition and DLC separately that do include more language options, perhaps all language options with available download packs.
As this edition of the game is available for free for anyone who purchased the Complete Edition previously (digitally) this does effectively solve my problem.

Again, this is a year after I purchased the game, so I guess we can finally play it now.
