I don't think they did. If they did, this wouldn't have happened as Nintendo would have made the necessary adjustments for work. I think these are just users in China using imported Switches. I just found an article earlier this year, that said Nintendo had no plans to launch in China this year.

"And later they found out the cause – Nintendo’s voice chat service is hosted on Google servers, which are banned by the Chinese government."

" It’s unclear whether Nintendo would implement an official fix, given they have no official presence in mainland China (excluding Hong Kong)."

Not sure if it'll be fixed any time soon, as they're all basically imported Switches.

In china most stores arent official, so they have pretty much everything. Mind you this doesn't mean it was ever officially launched there.

Umm, one of the most populous? It is the most populous and will be for the next few years before India overtakes them.

They should of use Microsoft or amazon servers instead since Google servers blocked over there

I wonder would it be hard to switch servers or is it too late

Which servers do Sony use?

Why switch servers for a country you never launched in (and don't plan to any time soon)?

And after that Nintendo should aim for that North Korea demographic!
