Last December, the eShop launched for the first time in Brazil, offering 400 games on day one. Until these recent changes, Switch owners across South America had limited access to games and services and even had to import consoles from other territories, but things are definitely getting better.

We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for eShop launch details in the countries mentioned above and update this article as we learn more.
