Wii U Replaces Friend Codes With Nintendo Network ID
Luis Alamilla | On 07, Nov 2012
Nintendo of America confirmed today that the Wii U won’t be using those horrible 12 digit friend codes that were used on the Wii. Instead the Wii U will use Nintendo Network ID or usernames like on the PSN or Xbox Live.
“Our plan is replace Friend Codes with a much more user-friendly Account ID system, which employs user-created account names.”
