I have a banned Switch, and I forgot the emails and passwords to 3 of the accounts (2 of them are throwaways, one for american eshop and the other for something else, cant remember, and one of them is my friend's, but his email got hacked so that's a no-go unless he remembers his password)
I deregistered my main account but I still can't format my Switch.
I'm trying to sell it (obviously saying it's banned) so it would be the best if I could just unlink all accounts. I'm at my wits end, but I thought of contacting [email protected] to ask them to unlink all accounts from my console, would that be possible?

You can't, I'm afraid. This is intentional.

You can unlink the console online on the website (though only once per year) or over the telephone, but you cannot remove the account from the console.

That sucks if it's true. But we'll see, I just sent an email to Nintendo.

But you CAN if you format it completely....right? You'll have to unlink it on the webpage but you can completely clean it with a format...yes?

It's been a Goldleaf feature since 0.7
Code:
Added support for unlinking (locally ONLY) accounts, mainly for banned people who want to unlink their accounts in order to delete them.

New to me but I don't know why on earth I'd want to unlink mine since it looks like a few games require an account linked to be played. I'm banned and I'm not removing mine.
