Hello!
Today I realized a grave mistake I may have done with my Switch purchases.
Since Im always hunting lowest priced due to being a bum without money, I started to fear that upcoming Nintendo Switch payable online services will be PER ACCOUNT instead of PER CONSOLE!

So what will happen with people like me who bought games with several different eshop country accounts? Will they lock us out of multiplayer?
Has this been stated anywhere yet?

Just use your main account... Or is there an issue with that?

Its an issue because I have Splatoon on my 2nd acc, MK on my 3rd acc, Rocket League on 4th and ...need I continue? :D
Im sure there are other people like me who were hunting for best prices too. Differences can be huge sometimes. 30-40% and more

Are you just worried about progress? Can you not play online with just one account?

You buy the game any account can play it.

Of course, progress/ranking and the ability to play online. I understand that any account can play it, BUT will that extend to the payable online service?
Will it be console based or account based? :0

I'd assume that the online services are tied to account. However, it IS Nintendo and we don't know much about the service itself.

Just an FYI, you CAN play online, on any region game with just one account. So, say you have 5 different account for these sales and cheaper purchases. Account 1 CAN play any of the other games bought by any account online.
