For my US folks it appears the "New" Regular switch is starting to become available. Its on Amazon and Best Buy has it for in store pickup, heading there now to get one!!!

Initial Thoughts: Looks identical obviously, doesnt appear to be any change at all to the exterior build of the joycons (which sucks because I have 4 being serviced now ) but hopefully what ever causes drifting is fixed internally. Feels the same, no heavier or lighter.

Got the screen protector on and doing the transfer now, hopefully it'll be done before the kids get home from camp. Happy so far with what was essentially a free upgrade, and thankful to get a new warranty as well. Cant wait to check out the battery life!!

@Ralizah It works exactly like PS4 and X1. Anyone can play the games YOU own digitally on your "primary" Switch. You can play the games YOU own digitally on anyone's Switch while logged into your account with an internet connection to verify permission. And both can happen simultaneously.

So anyone could play your games if they had a console that was your primary console, but they could play on their own account. You could play your games on their consoles while logged in. If you wanted to play a game with someone online or local, you could physically swap consoles, they could play on yours, you could play on theirs, simultaneously. But they can't play YOUR games on THEIR console unless they're logged in as you.

As far as I know, there's no "secondary console", there's your primary anyone can play your games on, and there's all other consoles you can log in and play your games with your account from.

FEW felt like the perfect Nintendo Musou to me. (that and I'd been predicting/begging for it since they announced hyrule warriors) I would love them to keep going with it to give Nintendo a way to quickly build the Musou fanbase (and FE). Although If I could have any pick it would be sequel to pokemon conquest.

@Alex101594 I'd love a new platformer starring Peach, and I wouldn't mind Perry returning. I do hope they ditch the emotion system though and come up with something new, it kind of fell flat.

@NEStalgia And is there a limit on how often I can change which Switch is considered the "primary" system?

Because, if not, then, theoretically, I could make, say, a family member's Switch my "primary," so that they could play my games on their account, and then I could play my own games as well on my Switch after logging in?

Current Games:

Astral Chain (Switch)

DOOM 3: BFG Edition (PC)

Paper Mario: The Origami King (Switch)

The primary system lets you share digital games across several accounts.

Not sure if the secondary system lets you. Or how does it all work with multiple systems. Only have one switch so I can't really test.

@Ralizah I don't believe there's a limit to the number of times you can change your primary, however that's the kind of thing you'd want to really trawl the fine print on the FAQs for before assuming, so you don't end up giving someone else's Switch all your games forever by mistake

@Tsurii You can't play the same games on two systems under the same account at once. But someone can can play the game under their own account on your primary switch regardless of if you're playing it under your account on another switch.

It works "by accident" because the "primary" switch is allowed to contain the authorization to run any of your games without doing the online DRM (otherwise it would be an "Always Online XBone" situation) - so, basically, Nintendo doesn't know who's running the game on your main system while you're playing on another, so long as it isn't you on both. The primary doesn't authenticate each time it's run.

Same setup with X1 and PS4, and works well for me on those platforms because I buy digital games once and both players in my home can play them at the same time. It doesn't work with MMO expansion packs/IAP. I tend to not use it much on Switch, ironically, though, since the physical nature of the console means my own handheld would have to be always online.

@StableInvadeel No, on a secondary system only you can play games that aren't owned by the system's linked primary account. I.E., if I hand you my Switch, you can log in and play any games you digitally own and I don't, but I can't play them. But you can play any games that I bought that you didn't because you're playing on the the primary system of my account, which bought them.

@NEStalgia Thanks for clarifying what was a rather confusing situation for me! <3

Not as simple as just sharing cartridges, but I think it can be made to work.

Current Games:

Astral Chain (Switch)

DOOM 3: BFG Edition (PC)

Paper Mario: The Origami King (Switch)

Didn't you have to unlink a primary system before making another system the primary system? And wouldn't that mean @ralizah couldn't access their games before the nephew decides to unlink their switch?

@Grumblevolcano Let's hope not. It should be their main focus, but not their only focus. A lot has changed since 2016!

BotW2 cannot be what BotW was. It can't have the same wow factor, it can't hope to be received as well, even if it's a 'better' game. As such, I'd be surprised if Nintendo gives it the same level of focus as BotW had.
