Looking for the cheapest price you can get a digital game on the Nintendo eShop? A useful website called Qual eShop is here to help.
Qual eShop displays the country which has the lowest price of every digital game available to purchase on the eShop. For instance, Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition is the cheapest to download on the South Africa eShop (USD19.54) as compared to the US eShop (USD29.99). While Kamiko costs only USD4.52 on the Japanese eShop, as compared to the US eShop (USD4.99).
As Nintendo Switch is region free, you can create up to 8 different Nintendo Accounts set to a different country to take advantage of the low prices. However, if you are living in a country with full eShop support, your credit card may not work on another country’s eShop, so you may have to purchase a prepaid card or code from the country to top up your balance.
