    Default Nintendo switch question

    Hi Guys

    If I buy a second hand switch and the seller gives me his switch account with games loaded on that account, logically those games would have to be loaded on the switch to play those games.

    My question is, if the games that are linked to his account is downloaded on the switch, and I decide to input a new switch account on the console, will I be able to play the games from the new switch account?

    Please let me know if this is possible. If I have to make the seller's account a "primary account" and then my new account as a "secondary account" in order to play the games on my account then I will be okay with that.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think your best bet is to change the email address for the nintendo account to yours, that way you have complete control over it.

    When you open a game on the switch it asks which profile is playing then uses that to check licence I think.

    If your switch is registered as the primary console for his account any game he owns will work on any account on the switch.

    You can have more than one primary account on a console, but one account can only be primary on one console.
