Switch owners in China are not happy with how things have been going since launch

What's going on, Tencent?!

The Switch launched in China a couple months back, courtesy of a collab between Nintendo and Tencent. Since then, fans have been getting more and more upset with the lack of support the platform has received.

Believe it or not, even though the system has been available for roughly 2 months, just one game has officially launched. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe was up for grabs on day one, and that's all customers have had to play. Along with that, Switch owners are angry with how online services are being handled in China, as they cannot access the eShop in other regions, and can't play with players in other countries.

Things have gotten so bad that a complaint collection service in Japan has seen the phrase "Tencent Nintendo Switch false advertisement" shoot to the top of their complaints list. Hopefully Tencent speaks out soon and offers up some insight on what's to come.

And oddly enough here we are, complaining about no general Nintendo Directs. Kind of makes you grateful for what you do have, in retrospect. I can't imagine living a reality where the only Nintendo game available is the most tepid entry in a tepid sub-franchise!

That sure is terrible. Let's hope they can get more games soon! I wonder what would cause this, the virus seems too recent so it's probably government stuff.

That still sold 5 million on Switch. It's not exactly universal appeal, but appeal nonetheless.

cognitive dissonance? Look at how your country handles foreign tech companies and stop wondering why things like this might be delayed or gimped.

If there really is only that one game available, I'd be upset too. It's not like the Switch is a multimedia device, either.
