    If you download a game through the freeshop and it is from another region, will the game work as normal? If not how do I fix this?

    Yes. Though games from other regions may not support your language. For example I can download a Japanese game but it's most likely not going to support English so I won't be able to play as I can't speak or read Japanese.

    I can't fully recall, but some game saves cannot transfer between regions. I tried that with Strange Journey recently. Online may also be inaccessible if your device is not of the game's region.

    Updating the game cannot occur when your region is not the same as the game.

    Untrue. The freeshop can download and install the update for the out of region games. Online play may not work though. Haven't tried. As for transferring saves? What? Who said anything about transferring a save? Saving works just fine with out of region titles. However yes transferring an existing save to a different region build of the game is often problematic...

    Most games do work out of the box but some need region emulation in order to work/display correctly. These can be fixed manually through Luma patches per game.
