I made this video with some Switch import games I picked up over the last year (with gameplay footage). The Nintendo Switch is region free, meaning you can easily pick up physical versions of games in other territories and play on your US console…and often in ENGLISH!

 

 

GAMES SHOWN:

Capcom Belt Action Collection
Taiko no Tatsujin: Nintendo Switch Version!
Psikyo Collection Vol 1 & 2
Okami: HD Remaster
Child of Light / Valiant Hearts
Runbow - Deluxe Edition
Syberia
Opus Collection
Gal*Gun 2
Peach Ball: Senran Kagura
RXN -RAIJIN- [LIMITED EDITION]
Flashback: 25th Anniversary [Collector's Edition]
 
Any other Switch imports I need to add to the collection?

Don't most of those have localized versions anyway?

Most do but certain games based on anime properties or niche RPGs get SEA releases in English as a way of getting round difficulties to licenses in the US and Europe.

Most of these games are available digitally in the eShop.... but only a few got physical releases in North America. Or in the case of Flashback, the collectors edition is very hard to find in stores now, but easily at Play-Asia

I’m looking forward to checking out Okami for the first time on the Switch. I’ve wanted to give it a play for a while.

I'm familiar, picked up Capcom Belt Action in December and back when it came out in english physically I got I Am Setsuna too.  I refuse to do digital if I can get it somehow thanks to no region locking.  I was considering Okami but I knew I'd never finish it or get far enough to just bother at all.

 

If anyone wants it yes-asia has the best price on the english release of both those Capcom games and if you order over I think $39 in games shipping is free.

heck yeah- i bookmarked Final Fantasy X/X-2 from Play Asia for this very reason.  I think that's where I'll be getting my copy :)

My copy of "Girls und Panzer Dream Tank Match DX" is on the way.  Released physically in SouthEast Asia with English subtitles.  It's my first "physical" import game for Switch.
