Welcome to the family!
Congratulations on getting your new system! We hope you have a blast.
Here are a few pointers we thought might come in handy as you get to know your next way to play.
Set yourself up for fun
Tailor your system to your liking with these features and settings.
Build your Wish List
If you find something cool on Nintendo eShop or Nintendo.com but aren’t yet ready to buy, you can add games to your Wish List to save them for another day. (And get an email reminder if those games go on sale. You never know!)
Set up parental controls
Little ones playing? Nintendo Switch has parental controls that let you set rules for using the system. While some parental controls are available on the system itself, a free app* for smart devices gives you even more options.
Increase your system's security
You can possibly prevent unauthorized access to your Nintendo Account when you set up the 2-Step Verification security feature.
Let the games begin
There’s something for everyone in the vast library of Nintendo Switch games. Jump right in with these popular games and accessories.
You can explore, purchase, and download full digital games, add-ons, and more right from Nintendo.com or from Nintendo eShop on your system.
Make the most of game time with the extras that suit your play style.
