Good news for Nintendo fans!!!!
According to a new unboxing video, you eShop purchase on the Switch will be associated to your account, rather than to the hardware.
Currently Nintendo doesn’t allow you to redownload digital purchase on any other systme likewise Microsoft and Sony. They’re tied to the piece of hardware you buy them on, not to a unified account system. If you replace your console, those games are lost. Fans have criticized the practice for years, and it appears Nintendo has finally listened.
YouTuber FloKO’ unboxing video that notes the following:
“Your Nintendo Account contains your Nintendo eShop purchase history and current balance. By re-linking your Nintendo Account after initializing the console, it will be possible to redownload any software or DLC purchased using that account. (Software that has been discontinued may not be available to redownload in some cases.)”
