    My Switch got caught up in the mass banning last year and I still being banned as of now. It not a big deal before but now new Pokemon and Animal Crossing are coming, I start to regret it. Do we have any option to unban the console yet?

    Yep, it's called buying a new switch. Bans are server side, they won't go away.

    no, you won't be able to unban. There will be efforts, I'm sure, to create a custom network for those banned folks to interact with each other though. Not sure if it'll be successful, but it's done for mario kart 8 to race "online". Smash has something similar, unless I'm mistaken. If that's not enough, you'll want to get a new switch. Possibly sell yours for a little bit of a loss and buy a new one.

    just my two cents: if you do sell it, at least do the right thing and list it as banned. it would be awful for an unsuspecting buyer to end up with one they wanted to use online. im sure theres a market for people wanting to mod that wont care about the ban

    New switch can't be hacked though, instead of selling it and fucking someone over, at the very least have the decency to buy a new switch and return the banned one, at least that only fucks a major corporation.

    How about instead of fucking over anyone, you just don't be a piece of shit. If you sell the console, make sure to mentioned that it's banned, but also mention that it is a hack-able model. People looking for hack-able models won't give a shit if it's banned.

    I don't think they need to disclose anything as long as it runs software. If the console is banned, they should plead their case to Nintendo.

    Morally it would be the right thing to do and legally would depend on laws in your country. Here in Scotland it would be illegal to sell it without disclosing it had been online banned.

    Thats a pretty asshole thing to do.

    There is a very simple illegal way to do it, and it should only be done at a major store. I don't think I can post the details.

    Yeah, if you try and sell it on ebay without stating it was banned, that's grounds for ebay to rule against you. Obviously say it's banned, but hackable. Many folks, me included, wouldn't be bothered by that. We would expect it to not be at full-price, obviously.

    So, really it comes down to what you're hoping to get out of nintendo online. If just trading/battling, wait for a homebrew solution maybe. If you want more, or don't want to wait, sell honestly and buy a new/used one. Those are about your only two options.
