Downloading a game onto your Nintendo Switch console
from a Download Card should be a straight forward task…

If you are having problems, don’t stress…just follow the steps outlined below and you’ll be enjoying your new game in no time!

IMPORTANT…In order to access Nintendo’s eShop
and download your new game, you must have a ‘Nintendo account’.

If you have not already set up a free account, then there
are instructions explaining how to do this further down the page,
below the ‘Download Card’ information.

PLEASE NOTE – Your Nintendo account needs to be associated with a
European country in order to be able to access the European store.

Your actual location in the world does not matter
when you download the game.

If your account was associated with an American, Australian or Japanese location, please create a new European based account.

PLEASE NOTE – You DO NOT need a paid Nintendo Switch Online account to download games from Nintendo’s eShop.

How to download a game from a Download Card.

WARNING! – Do not remove the security tag stuck to the back of the Download Card. This could result in damage to the unique code on the opposite side…You have been warned 🙂

On the front, lower section of the Download Card,
you will see a panel with a silver coating.
This coating covers the unique, 16 digit code number.

PLEASE NOTE – Do not attempt to peel off the silver scratch surface with your fingers, GENTLY scratch away the silver surface with a coin.

Do not rub too hard as this may damage the code number beneath ‘scratch’ coating.

Now follow these simple steps to download your game.

1 – Connect your system to the mains power supply.

2 – If you haven’t already, set up an Internet connection on the system. 

3 – Make sure your system has the latest system update.

5 – Select “Menu”, then select “Redeem Download Code”.

6 – Tap the box that says, “Enter a download code”.

7 – Use the touchscreen to enter the download code and tap “OK”. The  download code can be revealed by scratching the panel on the front of the card.

8 – Tap “OK” again.

9 – Select “Download Later” or “Download Now”.

10 – Items downloaded “now” will begin immediately.

11 – Items downloaded “later” will begin when the system enters sleep mode.

* This code can only be redeemed on one console.
