Found 2nd May
this offer is on again. (also $15 on the us store if you already have credit)

still an insane price for lego worlds downloadable on switch.

create a secondary account (through my.nintendo.com and have the region set to canada) then link with secondary switch account.

grab credit here mobile.pcgamesupply.com/cat…ard that's it.

you'll have $4.25 cad left over. there are a few games you can get for that price.

Great price, for a terrible terrible port.

Edit: some feedback on the current state of the game: reddit.com/r/N…nt/

Favorite quote from that discussion:

Least favorite game on the system. You hit trees before you can see trees. Super low render distance and horrible performance in my opinion.

Can I ask why you need to set up a second account? Some threads say do this some say just change your location? The discrepancy puts me off trying, I can't be bothered with numerous accounts

If you change your location to the US and pay with credit then you cannot change your location back to UK without contacting Nintendo support - I assume its the same for Canadian accounts. You can still do it but paying through a secondary account in this case is just easier.

Both ways are fine. up to the user. secondary account is just my personal preference.

you can swap regions if you choose, but worth knowing that if you have any currency left it vanishes once you change. e.g if you had £1 on your uk account then changed the region to canada you'd lose that £1. just like if you bought this game, but didn't spend the cad $4.25 if you then swapped back ot the uk you'd lose the $4.25 (but keep any purchases made of course).

that's why i personally, prefer to create a secondary account on my switch. At the moment i've got £6 left over from the last thing i bought on my primary uk account, am in no hurry to spend that (currently thinking of putting it towards smash) I'm not willing to waste that money (either on some random game or losing it by swapping regions) so having a secondary account makes sense for me. if you have no money left on your uk account you've nothing to worry about.

the secondary account is genuinely no hassle.

Why not just pay the required amount on checkout, then you don't have to worry about losing any remaining balance...

for starters normally when buying through the us/canadian stores, you can't use a uk paypal account. & the store/most debit/credit cards will not allow you to purchase things with a card not from the usa/canada.

then there are offers. it's not uncommon to save £1 or 2 by buying eshop cards online. rather than buying directly through the store. then there are other circumstances/offers, a while ago there was a spend £20 on the eshop via paypal and save £5. alot of folks (me included) will take advantage of such offers.

Heat for the price but even at this don't even bother. I've tried playing through the story with my son 3 times and each time encountered a different game breaking bug, its a terrible port
Am I doing something wrong? It says $14.99 on the eshop for me, and then adds tax on top, how do I get it cheaper?

So.... This contradicts the other response, is this your personal experience? Maybe there was a glitch?

You'd also lose your gold coins payback, 5%for digital, which could add up. I prefer to be able to pay with revolut etc, not sure if works in North America but supposedly does in Norway, which for some reason gets some great prices.

So when adding another account, can I just have that as a different user on my switch all the time? Or do I need to change regions all the time? Can my account play my other region games?

Wondering how this will affect there paid online later in year.

There is no problem changing to other European/PAL countries and back again. And it's very easy. ( accounts.nintendo.com )
Many report being unable to change back from America after loading credit onto their account.

Sorry about the late reply but yes this happened to me. I had to open a support ticket with Nintendo to switch back to a UK account and was advised not to change to a US account again as they may not be able to fix it for me again in the future.
