Nintendo recently revealed more details about Switch’s online service, which will begin in September.
In addition to confirming that cloud saves and NES games are on the way, Nintendo has also posted a short FAQ covering various common questions relating to the service.
One of these questions is quite interesting:
Q) If I have multiple Nintendo Switch consoles, will I need a separate subscription for each?
A) No. Nintendo Switch Online can be used on any device by signing in with the Nintendo Account that purchased the subscription.
We don’t know about you, but to us, it feels like Nintendo is taking the same approach that is used in the world of smart devices, dominated by iOS and Android. With Android, for example, it is possible to connect to multiple devices at the same time and discover all the content that you have purchased on them without any hassle.
Assuming it works the same with Nintendo’s system, you will be able to have more than one Switch console and play the same games on each of them – you will even be able to sync your progress between them, thanks to the socket. cloud backup load.
There may be some sort of restriction on how many Switch consoles you can be connected to at any one time (Google takes this approach with its Google Music service), but it’s still a huge step forward for a company that has traditionally had struggled to keep pace with online development.
Or we could just draw some conclusions here and there will always be a limit on what systems you can download and play games on. This is Nintendo, after all.
