About a month ago I changed to Russia and then the next day changed back to UK and it worked but at the moment I’ve seen a few people complaining about this so I thought that it could be a change made by Nintendo recently!!
I’m really annoyed because I wanted to buy stardew valley but I’m stuck in Mexico and it won’t take my card!

Looks like having a balance in a region eshop prevents changing region.

Joking aside you might just of been flagged or the server that transfers regions might be lagging.

I dunno? It could be I’m just telling you what happened to me!
Found out if the account is under 18 you cannot change the region!! I changed the region to Mexico but because the account is under 18 I cannot change it back!!!!

I’m just a bit confused because 1. I have changed it to Russia and then back to UK before and then 2. If I cannot change region because my account is under 18 why did it let me change to Mexico in e first place???
