Has anyone received their Smash orders?

Curious if they are US or Latin American like the Grey Switch I recieved.

I have US Mario Kart and wondering if this would make any difference. Would I need multiple accounts?
Got it yesterday. It has the ESRB rating (does Latin America even have its own rating system?) and all the text on the back of the box is in English and Spanish with the English text either being bigger than or at least on top of the Spanish text.

Nothing inside the box except the cartridge.

Code on the back is:
HAC P AAABA USA

I’m happy and jelly everybody got a Switch from fhe Facebook deal. Now no one has an excuse to not play Smash :p
To think I had no plans to buy a Switch until the release of Pokemon 2019 and now I have a Switch, a Pro Controller, and Smash thanks to Facebook lol.


Btw, all the new Smash owners here need to remember to register their game with their Nintendo Account (you do this on the Switch home screen) so you can get Piranha Plant for free. They will email you a code at some point. Being a new Switch owner, I had to look up how to register physical games.

My first copy of Smash was scheduled to be delivered today, right up untl about 3 hours ago, then it changed to tomorrow...now it's arriving with my other copy and the 8bitdo tomorrow. It's only a day, so nbd.

Edit: Also, where is the FCC compliance people are talking of? On the actual tablet or the box?
Edit 2: My first copy of Smash ended up coming in today anyway.

All of NA/SA use ESRB. They also should end up with the same region code.

I still haven't had any updates since ordering (not even a pre-shipping thing) and no responses from email and Facebook message I sent on Friday. Is anyone else having these issues?

Activating the warranty makes no sense, when an item with a serial number is scanned and sold, it immediately dings for inventory/tracking purposes, so Nintendo knows it's been sold. Once an item is sold, warranty is activated from that day to 365 days out.
I have since sold the Switch, I personally didn't try it. Like I mentioned maybe my wording/understanding was wrong and it was more so ownership change rather than warranty activation.

My copy of Smash arrived today and it's definitely a LatAm version.

Daily Steals on top; local USA Gamestop purchase on bottom:

The only 2 differences I notice are:
- the packaging above
- A Piranha Plant DLC code is included in the box for this LatAm copy, whereas that wasn't the case for the USA ver. I assume registration through My Nintendo doesn't work on this version? (I'll try it out when I get one of our other Switches to test on.)

I popped this cartridge into my Switch, which already had a USA save file, and it loaded the save just fine. The cartridge itself also has a "USA" product code printed on it, even though the packaging is LatAm. So maybe there's no actual difference in the game itself.
 
Interestingly, we were able to register that LatAm copy on a US Switch + US account and get the coins for it. Still waiting on the code e-mail though.

EDIT: I've still got a sealed EUR copy of Let's Go Eevee from these guys that I'd rather pass along to someone here if they're interested in it than keep it for myself. I'm lame and OCD when it comes to my personal collection and would rather keep it all the same, even though I'm sure this version plays fine.

PM me your price, I’ll consider it.

Update on warranty information for this: I've had the left joy-con desyncing issue with my unit (indicating these are old stock) and I called Nintendo for a warranty repair on the joy-con. I gave them my serial number and they confirmed I have the full one year warranty on the Switch with free repair in the US, even though it's a Latin American unit.
