    You can find Switch Title IDs by utilizing the Switch Parental Controls app!

    Let's get straight to the point! By connecting the Parental Controls app to your Switch you can view Title IDs of any game that you own. Let me explain how simple it is to obtain a title ID: When you click on an icon of a game in the app, it sends you to your browser. In the link that it sends you to, there is the title ID, but only around a second after, it redirects you to Nintendo's site for the game. I bookmarked it as fast as I could for my titles and then was able to access the bookmarks on my PC. Reminder, this method only works if you have a mobile device that can open a browser that has quick bookmarking abilities, such as android + chrome. Here are the titles gathered so far:

    Google Spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Us3Wb5warcH4hb13Zb4bZsiOZ6q4IKirCxZPyhV1ReQ/

    List of Title IDs found using this method

    And to show you proof of it, here are examples of links I got them from.

    Region free game example: (MK8D) https://ec.nintendo.com/apps/0100152000022000/US
    [If you replace US with any other region abbreviation it will load its region-respective site]
    Region free demo example: (Snipperclips) https://ec.nintendo.com/apps/0100D87002EE0000/US
    [Same as above, although as seen, demos link to their games, not the actual demo]
    Out of region demo example: (DQ Heroes 1&2 Japan) https://ec.nintendo.com/apps/0100930002EAA000/US
    [As you can see, the site won't load, unless you replace US with JP]
    Timed demo example: (Splatoon 2 GT) https://ec.nintendo.com/apps/010000A00218E000/US
    [The Testfire links to the game store or Nintendo's main site no matter what region you have it in]

    Account title ID link: https://ec.nintendo.com/apps/[TITLE ID]/[two letter country abbreviation - eg GB, US, JP]

    As seen above, some games are region locked and some aren't. For games like Puyo Puyo Tetris Japan Demo, there will be no page for the UK site because the game and its demos are based on region, unlike Snipperclips, meaning you can download all 3 versions of the Puyo Puyo Tetris Demo, but only one version of the Snipperclips Demo. Basically Puyo Puyo Tetris is region locked, and Snipperclips is not. If you are wondering why the Title IDs of games like Puyo Puyo Tetris are very different across regions, it must be noted that the Switch is region free and some games are region free as well, so with the region locked games a new system is in place as it isn't typical to have a number in the ID that marks the region anymore. You may also notice that the demo of a game redirects to the game itself. That is probably because the demo is not its own space on the eshop and is a side option for download. With demos like Splatoon 2 Testfire, it has it's own space on the eshop and I'm confident that the actual game will get a different ID than that demo. And oddly enough, the Splatoon 2 Testfire redirects to Nintendo's main site instead of for the game. If anyone has some insight into anything regarding Switch Title IDs please notify me of it in the discussion below. Speaking of discussions, why not share some of your Switch games' title IDs down below!

    And some may be asking: "Why is this useful?"
    It is useful as later when hacks do come out we will already have a head start on title IDs, so it is possible to mod some games and we won't have to go through the small hassle of getting the IDs then. (and to give us something to do while we wait for said hacks)

    Region Free in a console sense means that you can games from any region on it. For the Switch you can access other region's eShops by creating a new user and linking a Nintendo account with a different region tied to it. Region free in this sense that I am putting out means the game is the same no matter what eShop you buy it from, so for Snipperclips, even if you download it from the Japan eShop it will be the same as if you got it from the USA eShop and it will be played in the region of your console. For a game like Puyo Puyo Tetris, if you have a USA console and get it from the Japan eShop then you will play it in Japanese and if you get it from the USA eShop you will play it in English

    Or you could just take a screenshot, put the SD Card in your PC and get the TitleID from the picture there.

    Just tried that, the Title IDs are always 16 characters long, not 32. Plus they don't match the title ID's from Nintendo's site.

    From what I gather, here is a full documentation of the URL format.

    https://ec.nintendo.com/apps/[TITLE ID]/[two letter country abbreviation]

    The language part is completely optional and changing it seems to have no effect on where you get redirected to..

    Wait, the parental controls app lets you see title IDs? Why did Nintendo even think this was a good idea?

    What do you think they are? They are the same on a game with multiple screenshots.

    They're definitely not Title IDs, that's for sure. Title IDs are always 16 digits long. It's possible they are just the IDs for the screenshots in general or some kind of secondary ID.

    Do I see Nintendo using the same database for all things e-commerce since the Wii? And has it raw and accessible via poorly assembled JSP pages too?!
