Desperatly need help setting up multiple switches


Novice Member

I am the owner of a nintendo switch (Normal version) of which I am the the admin account holder. I have three daughters (triplets) who all have profiles under this account on the switch. For christmas we purchased a further three more nintendo switch lites for each of our daughters with view that we would still have the family console for multi-player games and games which require a tv or usb (i.e. lets sing).

I have spend many, many hours trying to figure out how to get my daughters profiles onto the new switches but have failed, this has completely ruined my daughters christmas as this was one of there only presents due to the cost of the consoles.

It is now boxing day and I am desperate for help to try and figure out how to resolve this problem.

Please if anyone can help, I would be most greatful.

Have you assigned Nintendo IDs for each of those profiles?
Once that’s done it should just be a case of them just logging in to each.
If you’re wanting all their game saves etc to be attached to their profiles then you’ll also need a family online subscription to be able to save those to the cloud so they can be downloaded to the new switch lites.
