At a recent preview event for 1-2-Switch at the New York Nintendo store, someone asked about the potential for getting a second Switch for his children “If I want to take my system with me…if I were to buy a digital game, could I buy it once, or would I have to buy it multiple times so they can use those games?
The answer from Nintendo Entertainment Planning and Development General Manager, Shinya Takahashi said
“Currently we don’t have a system like that in place for Nintendo Switch, but we haven’t made any final decisions about how we would approach that going forward in the future, so unfortunately I can’t provide any concrete answer for you right now.”
Basically this means it sounds like a Nintendo account can only be linked to one Nintendo Switch at a time. These restrictions do not apply to physical games obviously.
