    Certain games will not launch without a linked account. And since Nintendo does not primarily ban accounts, you have little to nothing to lose by having a linked account.

    Which games? I have most popular games on my switch and I don't have any problems playing them without a linked account. I'm just interested to know as I'm new to this. Thanks.

    Mortal Kombat 11, Pianista, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Knight, and Stardew Valley are a few examples I can think of off the top of my head.

    I'm getting some conflicting results when I look it up as some people mention Airplane Mode works fine while others report game updates resolve the issue. In any event, it doesn't change the fact that there are games that exist out there which require a linked Nintendo Account one way or another.

    OK thanks. I'll keep that in mind. At the moment I have around 40 games on my 512gb card and none require a linked account. But if I run into one, I'll know.

    Nintendo can but they have never chose to do so thus far and do not show any signs of changing their behavior anytime soon.

    Could be a glitch but multiple users have reported zero issues when using the Nintendo account from a banned console on an unbanned console.

    Banned users who called Nintendo asking about it were told it's fine to use the account from the banned console on a new console, they don't care, and why would they as long as you're buying your games and not installing "unauthorized modifications"?
