Jiang Ziya, the sequel to the blockbuster Chinese animation Ne Zha, is getting a US release. The earlier movie made a whopping $720 million in China, and the sequel follows the adventures of an army commander who is tasked with killing the Nine-Tailed Fox Demon. Jiang Ziya will be released in the US on February 7.
It appears that Chinese Switch consoles are locked. Tencent is handling the Chinese market, and domestic games, which read “CHN” on the Switch cards, are reportedly locked. This means international players will need to import Tencent Switches should they want to play any future China-only releases.
The Switch seems like it’s off to a good start in China. In the first nine hours, pre-orders of the Switch surpassed 100,000. As Nintendo Soup explained, these numbers are from JD.com, China’s largest online retailer, so factoring in other retailers, the real number might be higher.
