Quick Answer: Can I Use An American Nintendo Switch In Europe?

@xaiamasters Theoretically it’s possible to use your Nintendo Switch in another country if you have the correct charger, it’s not recommended though.

Nintendo’s warranty is only valid for the country that the Switch was purchased in.

Is the Nintendo switch region locked?

Unlike every other Nintendo console shipped since the company started designing actual operating systems, the Switch is completely region-free — you can play games from any country without issue, often in any language. No Japanese Nintendo console since the DSi has even let you change the system language.

Is a Nintendo switch dual voltage?

The Switch is multi-voltage like most modern computing devices so the voltage shouldn’t worry you. European sockets are different to US sockets but a simple adapter will allow you to plug a US connector into a European socket.

Will US Nintendo switch work in UK?

Actually, most likely you shorted the dock when you plugged it in in the U.K. without the adapter. You have a US dock that is set for US voltage, around 120. It’s actually working now, with the UK power cable.
