Topic: Nintendo Network ID Can be Moved to a New Wii U

Posts 1 to 5 of 5


I can attest to this.

I sent in my Wii U Deluxe model to Nintendo to be repaired since it wasn't reading any of my Wii U or Wii discs. Instead of repairing my broken Wii U, Nintendo sent me a new model and I was able to use the Nintendo Network ID I made on the broken unit, no trouble whatsoever.



but also the Wii info (saves, downloads, etc) are tied to the ID?

Me gusta jugar videojuegos. Soy de México. Sorry my english grammar. I love the Virtual Console, party and fighting games too.

So far I sent mines in for repair (froze on recent update= brick) and the representative I was talking with said "in the case we can't fix you Wii U, we will transfer your Nintendo Network account and game data to a replacement". We'll see next week when I get it back if I have a different serial number.

On a side note, that anonymous user that chat with the Nintendo staff don't seem to patient (or bright) IMO. He should of called Nintendo first to troubleshoot the problem and set up an repair if needed, in which case he wouldn't have to be in the situation he's in now. Besides don't the customers have to pay for returns back to amazon cause it would of been cheaper with the alternative.

A dying animal struggles, thrashes and howls in protest as its life torn from it. To see this in action, watch Animal Planet. The same thing happens when a video game is or isn't released. To see this in action, stay here.
