Nintendo switch will be in our hands in a matter of no time, a new console breathing in new life to the Nintendo lineup, being not only unique but a more powerful compared to its predecessors.

A leaked document has revealed that single accounts can be connected via a network to multiple Nintendo switch consoles and are device-spanning, which can also be accessed by PCs and other devices.

Nintendo Accounts

The accounts are device-spanning network accounts that can also be used from PCs and smart devices.
Users can log in to their accounts using a Nintendo Network ID (NNID) or via external services such as Google+, Facebook, and Twitter.

Linking With Nintendo Accounts
A link to a Nintendo Account can be set for each user on the NX. After an account has been logged in to on the NX, there is no need to log in again (to reenter a password), aside from a few exceptions like certain errors.
By linking to a Nintendo Account, not only will users be able to play online games on the NX, but they will also be able to use services like the following to which the link is made external to the NX.

Purchasing of content (from official websites) using smart devices and PCs.
Importing resources like NNID eCash from older hardware.
Recommending friends made in non-NX applications.

Linking limitations

The link between a user and a Nintendo Account can be removed at any time. After the link has been removed, the user can link to a different Nintendo Account.

A single Nintendo Account can be linked to multiple NX systems. When multiple NX systems link to the same Nintendo Account, the user nickname and icon is synchronized across systems. However, the application’s save data is not automatically synchronized across systems. On the other hand, it is not possible to either link multiple users to the same Nintendo Account on the same NX system, or to link one user to multiple Nintendo Accounts.

According to the document, you will be able to simultaneously select multiple accounts and switch between them while playing selected games.

An account does not need to be selected when the NX system is started, so you can design your application to make the selection at any time. You can ask the player to select an account in the regular way when the application starts, or you can support any of the following mechanisms to suit the game design.


Nintendo Switch will be released on march 3rd all around the world.
