Hey guys
I know there is many threads on this but I still did not quite understand the topic. I read that the downloaded games are linked to the console and the NNID.

I just got my first wii U second hand. There is an account on it with NNID that downloaded Zelda Wind waker HD. Sadly i don't have access to that account because the password is unknown. Is there a way to keep the game on the console and make a second account with NNID so I can purchase more digital games?

Sorry about the simple question, but the Account/Console linked system by Nintendo is a bit confusing.

@Astrus You can have up to 12 NNIDs associated with one Wii U, so just create a new NNID without deleting the old one and you'll still be able to play WWHD and but new games.

Use the 'ignore' button, it works.

I made a second NNID ages ago, and all the games that I've downloaded on my original NNID are playable on the second. Athough the in game saves don't transfer over though.
