    PS:
    - I'm not sure in which category to put this in but this one seems the most apropriate.
    - I had hyperlinks images planned but I'm a new member so that ain't happening.
    - Sorry for any grammar mistakes.


    Hi, I recently bought some stuff on my switch via the eShop.
    The game is fine, the problem is with all software on my console; when ever I try to launch anything regardless of wether it's a cartridge or a downloaded game It always checks if it's playable as if I bought the game before the full launch, but it does this for everything. The console refuses to load anything without an Internet conection; the only exception so far are cartridge games which it loads without the DLC/Updates.

    This is what it does with conection:
    ''Checking if the software can be played''

    In airplane mode or offline:
    ''Unable to connect to the Internet''

    Hopefully someone knows what may be causing this Issue, thanks.

    That is very strange. I've never seen that issue happen before. Wonder if it might be some new form of DRM for digitally purchased titles.

    Is your console listed as the Secondary account holder of the linked Nintendo Account for these games?

    Not sure, how/where do I check if it is?

    It isn't. I'll change it to be the primary
