Switch eShop Now Highlights Best Sellers

April 03rd, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

Nintendo recently added a new section to the eShop that allows visitors to view the 15 most downloaded titles.

The change does not completely address user’s complaints about titles being hard to find after being bumped off the Recent Releases section, but it does at least provide an additional area for games to be seen.

The top 15 titles are selected based on the number of downloads over the past two weeks.

Switch eShop Access Is Tied to Nintendo Account Region

January 20th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

The Nintendo Switch will be able to play physical copies of import games without the need for any modification, thanks to Nintendo’s decision to not place any sort of region-locking on the console.

As for digital titles, Nintendo recommends Switch owners buy games from their region’s eShop “to ensure full service and support.” However, there is no actual restriction on which region a user can access. The eShop a user will be able to visit is determined by the region selected in their Nintendo Account, and regions can be freely changed at any time.

The Switch will also allow for up to eight accounts on one system, which means owners can set up multiple accounts, each corresponding to a different region, if they wish.
