If you’re a Switch owner, and you have digital games on your console, then this news may really interest you. You will now be able to designate a Switch console as the “primary console”, then make other Switch consoles “non-primary consoles”. This will allow digital sharing across multiple Switch consoles via your Nintendo Account, something that has been highly requested by fans.
However, there are a few catches. If a non-primary Switch player is playing a game, and the primary Switch console player begins to do the same, then the non-primary player will have to stop. Non-primary consoles are also required to have an internet connection to play. Also, according to Nintendo, “when using downloadable software on a non-primary console, your game will pause if your Nintendo Account is used to access downloadable software on any other Nintendo Switch console”. Lastly, downloadable content can only be started by the user that purchased it.
