Sweet. I'll do that.For some reason, you can’t use a foreign credit card to add credit to your wallet through the Japanese Switch eshop. If you don’t have a prepaid card from Japan, your only other option is to:
1. Link your 3DS eShop account to your Switch eShop account. Both need to have their region set to Japan, and all details (DOB etc) must match.
2. Add money to your 3DS eShop account - because this eShop does accept foreign credit cards.
3. Head to the Switch eShop and buy the game you're after.
I did this over the weekend for Moon. It just takes some time to get everything up to date and linked, but once it's done, you're set from then on out.
