Nintendo of America has confirmed that those irritating twelve digit friend codes are now a thing of the past with Wii U. The company told Destuctoid that they’re being replaced with a much more user-friendly Account ID system. We already know that this will be known as your Nintendo Network ID, but it’s good to get some official clarification all the same.

“Our plan is replace Friend Codes with a much more user-friendly Account ID system, which employs user-created account names.”

I cant wait until phone numbers get phased out in favour of alphanumerics!

Signatures are for LOSERS.

If you disagree, copy + paste this into your signature.

Uh oh... I better reserve SethNintendo before any other Seth gets the idea. Now, I definitely need to come up with the cash before launch. Time to start man whoring myself out.

Wasn't it gonna be an ID and a code? I thought that was better cuz your code would be unique and you could have any ID you wanted, i.e. no need to add random numbers/letters at the end of your name.

My 3DS Friend code is 0877-1237-2177 ...ADD ME! :D
