"- Online Multiplayer menu does not feature worldwide multiplayer: Only Regional, Friends & Rivals, and Tournament options"
So the system will be region locked in China.

That's the most obvious guess. Then again, China is a big country, so they can manage if the Switch gets big enough.

Well yeh, it's called the Great Fire Wall of China for a reason... of course Nintendo has to follow the Chinese government's rules or they wouldn't be allowed at all.

I think Shy Ghost King is a great name
