    Physical games released in mainland China will only work on consoles manufactured for the mainland China region. I assume that the same games will be unavailable on the eShop, even if you change your region to mainland China.

    The impact on westerners will be minimal. Atmosphere will probably be updated to remove the region lock. The games are likely only playable in Chinese so most westerners wont consider playing them anyway.

    Of course they are; can't bypass the Chinese strictness and Tencent.
    ...How much longer until China collapses, like the USSR did?

    China produces time itself? Jeezus; I do NOT like the sound of that...they could go back and get rid of any anti-China plans! They could conquer the world itself with chronokinesis! Here I thought you needed to have a magical blue ocarina, have a blue English telephone booth, a magical harp, the assistance of a giant blue metallic dragon, a small hourglass necklace, or be a Chronosapien to pull that off!

    But nope; China just produces time. Who knew chronokinesis was so simple?

    There's a politics subforum on a gaming forum site?
    ...Makes sense, I guess...¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Not in China, you don't. You don't disrespect history...or reincarnate without permission....which may make for some hilarious game censoring.

    So I guess they'll have: NSMB: D : Deluxe, MK8: Not Deluxe, SMO: Chinese D for about three years......I kind of want to play The Legend of Genshin Impacted LoZ on Switch.

    I also want to play those
    A key part of Nintendo’s strategy in China is partnering with one of the country’s biggest technology and gaming companies. Tencent runs China’s popular messaging service WeChat and has cloud computing capabilities. It also has regulatory know-how in China.

    “Tencent has increased the appeal of the Nintendo Switch in China by including a one-year warranty with the console, Tencent servers to power online play, WeChat pay support and high-quality localized titles,” Niko Partners said in a note. “We believe that Tencent can continue to increase the appeal of Switch in China through the introduction of the cheaper Switch Lite, cloud gaming services, free to play titles and self-developed Tencent titles.”
