Given that the Nintendo Switch is a very sought-after product in the market, even years after it was first released, it’s nice to see Nintendo finally opening up its official support in the South East Asian region.

Before this, the Nintendo Switch was already widely available in the country, but it is nice to imagine just how much more accessible the device will be, along with the perks of having an official repair center, due to this appointment.
