Really curious to see how Nintendo handles the account system/eshop once it is increasingly likely that a household will own multiple switch units. I'll probably end up getting one for my son, and I'm sure I'll have to put some thought into how our account(s) are set up.
Account sharing is already a thing. I share my account with my daughter's Switch, and we can both play the same game at the same time with separate saves (even multiplayer against each other, as long as it is online multiplayer, not local wireless).
If it's for personal use, it's generally quite seamless (if you have automatic cloud saves enabled), except for a few major games that don't have cloud saves - Splatoon 2, Animal Crossing and Pokemon. For these you would need to do a save transfer, so not entirely seamless (but not the end of the world either). But even for those it seems there may be a solution in the making, according to an interview with Bowser.
