It's been up a while, but like a lot of Nintendo things at the moment, not much is said about it..

Your userid has to be at least 6 characters, all lowercase and no spaces.

To set one, got to user information and then user id some people, including myself, were prompted to change their password. Which will trigger an email with a 4 digit code you can enter and then reset your password. Once done, you can then finally set a userid. As I say only some people get prompted to set a password, but it can be a bit confusing at first.

To be fair to Nintendo as much as I love their consoles and games their websites are absolutely junk..

I clicked the link and I'm already logged in with a username. Must have already done it a while ago.

I really hate user ids with a lowercase first letter... Urgh.

COOL BRO

I got 'mariogolf'. Tried about a million better known games and characters to no joy. Had no real intention of buying a switch but if/when mario golf comes out for it I now pretty much have to so I get the one PM a week saying "nice username"

Where you have to enter 4 digit code just click 'resend verification email' a few times I got one almost instantly after having waited 5 mins. Hope it helps.

Who knows, nothing regarding online has been explained, which is worrying with 2 weeks to go..

Have you linked your NNID to the Nintendo Account? That will be your ID you use on your 3ds at the mo (I don't know how else to call it, see confusion!)

5hrs later still no verification code?

Is it possible to create an account from scratch then link an NNID after ?
I've been waiting ages for my verification email like others

cant register

I had no issues registering, got all verification emails within seconds.

Thanks I am now Metroid_Prime

finally got verification email through
got mario_kart_64

Thanks, I got super_smash_brothers
I probably won't get a Switch straight away (not got the time or money to spare), but it looks really good

Its weird. I have a nintendo network id on my wii u which is linked to my email address but when i try signing into nintedo's website on my computer it says my email or password are incorrect...

Tried setting up a new NNID.

No email received, go to resend it, access denied

Cheers not Nintendo but got Alex_kidd
