    Last chance for TeamXecuter to iron out any remaining bugs that might linger.

    This seems to be a two-fold attack, to take care of those who were evading bans by unlinking accounts from their banned switches, and those account "swingers".
    There better be a good online infrastructure and benefits, for all i see is just things that encumber the end user, just to prevent a very few issues.

    I mean, what would i do if i suddenly have the need of unlinking the account because i bought, let's say for this example, the new Pikachu and Eevee Switch? Do I REALLY have to go through that circus of calling customer support and describe even the last stuff i ate this morning?

    Two steps back, one step ahead, Nintendo. In the end, it's a terrible mistake that could (and BOY it should) be better addressed!

    No, from the looks of it you can still factory reset the console, and add/remove user accounts. It's just that once you link a nintendo account to a user account, you can't unlink them anymore

    Isn’t linking an account to a switch the same as adding an account to the switch?

    Nope, you can have separate user accounts that don't have a Nintendo account linked to them at all, if you so choose. It's basically like a save profile

    I am almost sure this is more to do with profile/saves and how they will backup online. This is prob just to manage encryption/decryption and what consoles can get them. Considering what has been going on with this scene this is just their way to ensure saves cant be used as another entry point.

    This part I do not understand. I purchased my first Switch on launch and the second a few months later. I was not allowed to put my 1st Nintendo Account on my 2nd Switch, at least as primary accounts able to purchase from the eshop. So I had to buy the BotW DLC twice. Now my kids are allowed to have their accounts on both switches, but I had to use separate email addresses for the primary accounts. However from reading threads here it seems this is has no longer been the case and one can have the same account on multiple Switches. When did this change? Can I merge my two accounts?

    Nintendo is distracting us by the the unlink thing, while they may have prepared a nasty surprise for us. I know that some people got access to 6.0 weeks before it was released but who knows what version they will release. Updating still not recommended even if SX and ReiNX said they will work with this version.

    I thought these things were already linked. I guess that comes from the Switch being my most "legit" console in a long time. I cant wait for 6.0!

    Remove the ability to unlock the account to fight the people who sells accounts with games that bought in cheap regions.

    Maybe one thing nintendo trying to do is trick the people that is applying selfban (staying offline) to get paranoid and go online to unlink their switch account. At that point logs will be transfered and console gets flagged for a ban.
