Nintendo Switch (Switch, Switch Lite, Switch OLED) hardware isn't region locked, but any available DLC content is tied to a regional Nintendo eShop. Nintendo officially recommends that players purchase software that is specifically made for their Nintendo Switch system's region. If you're planning on purchasing DLC, it's important to ensure the region of your physical game cartridge matches the region of your Nintendo Account.
To confirm if you're experiencing a region mismatch between your Nintendo Account and game cartridge, please reference this article from Nintendo: Region Compatibility FAQ. If the regions do not match, you'll need to contact Nintendo Support for further assistance.
