Two Switches on the same Nintendo profile.


New member
My son and I both have switches and we share the same Nintendo Profile and for the most part it works. I have one major issue.

We both can't play downloaded games the same time. It doesn't matter the title at all. He loves Fortnite and plays with his friend and most of the games we have purchased are downloads.

How can I get it so that we are able to both play downloaded games at the same time. I have had issues trying to establish a parent and child profile because the Switch would not allow him to play any downloaded content from my profile becuase it wasn't linked to his profile.

I have looked through the instructions online how to set up two profiles that share the same content, but it has never worked for me. I admit I might have missed a step or two.

Any advice would be much appreciated.
