Game sharing on the Nintendo Switch allows you to share digital games with another Switch user, which means you and your friend or family member can play the same game without having to buy it twice. Here are the steps to gameshare on Switch:
- Create a Nintendo Account or sign in to an existing account on the Nintendo eShop.
- Add your friend’s Nintendo Account as a friend on your Switch console. To do this, go to your Home menu, select your user icon in the upper left corner, and navigate to “Add Friend.”
- Your friend needs to add your Nintendo Account as a friend on their Switch console as well.
- On your Switch console, go to the Nintendo eShop and select the account you want to use to purchase games.
- Purchase the game you want to share on this account.
- Once the game is downloaded, sign out of your account on your Switch and have your friend sign in with their account.
- Your friend should be able to see the game you purchased in their Nintendo eShop account and can download it for free.
It’s important to note that only one Switch console can use the shared game at a time, and the account that purchased the game must be signed out before the other account can access it. Additionally, not all games support game sharing, so be sure to check before purchasing.
