Switch owners can now easily load digital software purchases onto more than one console following a firmware update that was rolled out last night. Further Reading Welcome to NES-flix: Testing Nintendo Onlineā€™s new 8-bit library on Switch Switch firmware version 6.0.0, which is necessary to use the new Switch Online service, introduces the ability to associate "non-primary consoles" with your Nintendo Account (in addition to the "primary console" where you first used the account). Before you start planning to share your Nintendo Account game library with a few dozen friends, note that only one Switch at a time can access the digital library on that account. "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," Nintendo writes. The addition is another "better-late-than-never" addition to a Switch online account system that has been an incredibly bare bones affair since the system launched last year.
