    Is this any different to the existing sale and posts about this?

      Same sale but in different region store and possibly different price.

      This is the gold edition, which includes all the DLC.
      The AU sale does not include the DLC, which is about $30AUD and has never been on sale.

    If I have eshop credit on my Australian account, can I use it to buy stuff from the US Nintendo store ?

    I've already researched how to create a us account so I'm thinking of doing it. Missed out on the previous Mario Rabbids deal on Amazon

    Some games have cheapest price in South Africa and mexico, for example hollow knight.
    However, it is hard for Australian users to change to these two regions for purchasing games.

    It really irks me that large corporates geo tag folks, forcing them to pay more for software, obviously one would factor in exchange rate based on relevant local currency, but once that’s been accounted for digita, and downloadable software should be the same price everywhere. Of course, I understand that they pander to certain markets, etc, but it’s just aggravating that we get gouged just because we live in a certain location.

    Sigh, that’s my rant over. Not much I can do about it, so I’ll just continue shouting at the sky.

      Depends. Like whether they have local servers and all that jazz. Electricity would cost more here. Hosting costs more. But generally speaking it’s bs.

      There's other reasons, tax, international trade agreements, ratings boards, localisation.

    I have been buying the eshop card from g2a ebay. The 35usd cards seem best value for aud. Best done with discounted ebay vouchers during a percentage off sale.

    Fyi, most games are cheaper on us eshop when there is a sale on compared with au.
