Nintendo Switch: Nintendo eShop to launch in Hong Kong on April 3rd

Today, Nintendo announced that the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo Switch would be officially launched on April 3rd in Hong-Kong. And we’re not talking about an extremely limited one like in South Korea (where only download codes can be used), but a proper one where you can purchase games and other content.

At launch, only a selection of Nintendo games will be available for purchase, despite many other games (especially from indie developers) offering Chinese language options. Naturally, more games will be added in the future, but in the mean time, buying games from the North American Nintendo eShop is most likely going to be the way to go for many users.

Here’s the list of games available at launch:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (HKD 560.00, Chinese language options)
  • 1-2-Switch (HKD 400.00)
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (HKD 480.00, Chinese language options)
  • ARMS (HKD 480.00, Chinese language options)
