What happens if you change region on switch?
You’re games should still be available to re-download, providing that game is available in that region. Each NNID is set to a specific region, so nothing will be affected if you are simply changing the region of your console via Settings.
Can I change Nintendo eShop region?
Your Nintendo eShop account balance does not carry over when you change the country that your Nintendo Account is set to. If a Nintendo eShop exists for your region, credit cards issued from your region will not work in a different region’s eShop.
Is the switch region locked?
No, the Nintendo Switch can run any game from any region, and 99.9% of all the games on the Switch are not region-locked, with the exception being Splatoon 2 due to the Splatfests which are based on your region, more specifically Japan vs. not Japan.
