Product Serial Numbers

Serial numbers are composed of at least two letters followed by 9 decimal digits. The ninth digit is a check digit, meaning that it is derived from the other digits.


Observed prefixes are normally as follows:

  • First letter represents the product model:
    • "F" (32 GB / Premium / Deluxe Edition)
    • "G" (8 GB / Basic Edition)
  • Second letter represents the product region:
    • "A" (Australia)
    • "B" (Brazil)
    • "E" (Europe)
    • "J" (Japan)
    • "M" (Middle Eastern)
    • "W" (Western/Americas)
  • Third letter is optional:
    • "F"
    • "H"
    • "M"

Check Digit

The check digit is an industry-standard algorithm and is calculated just like it was on the 3DS.

To calculate the check digit of a Switch console, separate the non-check digits into "odd" and "even" groups, where the "odd" group is digits in odd-numbered positions, and the "even" group is digits in even-numbered positions. (The first digit is "odd", with "first" representing "1".)

After separating the digits, add the digits in each group together. Multiply the sum of the even digits by 3, then add the sum of the odd digits. To calculate the check digit, take this value modulo 10, and if not 0, subtract from 10.

Example: FW107732231

The non-check digits are 10773223. Separating into odd and even groups, we get the following:

Odds: 1 + 7 + 3 + 2 = 13 Evens: 0 + 7 + 2 + 3 = 12

Applying the algorithm, we get ((3 * 12) + 13) % 10 = 9, which is not 0, thus 10 - 9 = 1, matching the example's check digit.
