This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Make sure you untick the customer protection charge box to get these prices.

* there is a small charge if paying with a uk debit card/paypal account. between 50p - £1 As a precaution would recommend going with paypal.

they had splatoon 2 & hyrule warriors for similar prices, they both activated fine, so there shouldn't be issues with these.

Even after the card/paypal fee they charge, all 3 are still significantly cheaper than the uk eshop prices.

1-2 switch is currently £39.99
captain toad is £34.99
tropical freeze is £49.99

these are also currently full price on the u.s eshop. so if redeemed on your u.s account you will also get the following back in gold points.

donkey kong $2.99
1-2 Switch $2.49
captain toad $2

making these really good deals.

* u.s eshop account required. info here:randomreviewzblog.wordpress.com/201…le/

Is a US account really required? I thought Switch was region free?


The term Region free refers to physical media. e.g. u.k switch can play Japanese, american physical games cause it's region free. Where as 3ds was region locked. none of the physical copies from outside europe would work on a pal 3ds. though you could create a foreign digital account,(but these couldn't run alongside pal ones, was all or nothing on 3ds)

Digital codes of any console always require an account matching the digital goods region. e.g. playstation 3 & 4 are also region free (can play discs of any region) but like the switch requires a digital account matching the location of the code being redeemed. So if a code is 'locked' to japan, it needs to be redeemed on a Japanese psn account. (though can be played on a uk account once installed)

switch's idea of "region free" is actually better than playstation though. on playstation, saves and dlc is region locked. they are not region locked on switch.

e.g. sonic mania dlc was cheaper on the american store, so i bought it and it worked with the uk version of the game. that wouldn't work on ps4 or xbox.

e.g. I played mario odyssey at launch (uk copy) then a year later got a cheap u.s cart and it allowed me to continue my pal save. that wouldn't work on ps4 (and i think its the same on xbox, don't use one)

another nice feature on switch is if you buy something on the american eshop, that item will no longer be purchasable on any other region. So no accidental double purchases.

so switch is the most "region free' console, but there are still restrictions.

Carts are region free. You can change regions on your account but you can’t do so with any remaining credit on an account and would require you constantly switching. It’s much easier to make a US account and just have it on your Switch with your UK one.

Wait do you have the original switch joycons?!
What do you have to make a US account of? Sorry new to Switch and keen for the Toad game!
Edit: Sorry, I now know I need to make a US Nintendo account! If I do this and buy the Toad game, will I be able to only use it when I'm signed into the US account or can I sign back into my UK account?

Thanks so much! So I make a US account, add this game to it and then switch back to my UK account to play it?

Thanks for the info. Have cancelled my Switch Lite preorder as I basically only bought it for this, but Shopto are saying I will have to turn the parcel away at the door rather than them process the refund now.

Gutted as I was really looking forward to playing this.

Yes. When you launch a game on Switch it will ask you which account to use and just choose the UK one.
Dk oos
Captain toad worth the money?
Worked and redeemed. Was a little wary of the seller so used my Monzo card but all has gone through fine and it's downloading now.
Great deal

Captain toad worth the money?


For me, yes! I've got it on the Wii U and definitely one of my favourite games, lots to do and extra challenges once main tasks are done, that said I wouldn't pay full price but at less than £20 it's well worth it.

Anyone double dipped on the Switch? Worth buying again?
still alot of tropical freeze
Thanks... Been waiting for Tropical Freeze digital. Now just need Diablo III digital.
Tropical freeze is out of stock. Damn it.
tropical freeze all gone annoyingly but managed to nab the last captain toad - thanks @bobafettish
Damn, all out of stock

You bought a switch Lite JUST to play one of the few games that won't work with it?
If its worth anything, there are a whole lot of other games better than 1-2 Switch that will still work with it.

It will work but requires Joy-Con controllers

Good luck, pretty sure it needs detachable joycons for most of the mini game bit
