    I'm confused about Nintendo Accounts, v6.0 coming out and all that.

    I don't have an account with Nintendo, just the console 'user profile' . My 5.1.0 Switch has never been online, and is in airplane mode. I never plan on going online. But I'm seeing that some newer NSP's are required a "linked account" for them to launch.

    So, do I need to create an online account on my PC, using a burner email, and link that to my console offline?

    Such a simple concept but it's stumped me lol

    Only way to finalize the link is to connect online and communicate to Nintendos servers and once you do ban coming in 3...2...1 and for what just to play the new NES online service? No thanks I would pass and use emulators for now. Hold out for now. Have a gut feeling that requirement will be spoofed in the near future.

    Thanks, glad I am not missing anything. I read some games will have updates which will need an account, I’ll just not install those update nsp’s.

    As you said I’m sure it will be circumvented at some point
