Can Other Players Use Software I’ve Purchased on Nintendo Switch?

Yes. Anyone that uses the primary console for your Nintendo Account will be able to play software you’ve purchased with that Nintendo Account.*

Please note that you can set one console per Nintendo Account as your primary console. If you change the primary console for your Nintendo Account, your software will not be playable by others on the console unless you make it the primary console for your Nintendo Account again.

Additionally, if your Nintendo Account is deleted, any associated software licenses and funds will be deleted as well, and will not be accessible on the console.

*Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online classic games are available to anyone with an active Nintendo Switch Online membership.
