Claim your Nintendo Account User ID in preparation for Switch
While we still don’t know all there is to know about Nintendo’s online services for the Switch. We do know that the existing Nintendo Network ID is being phased out and your Nintendo Account will take over going forward.
At the moment this account is just your email, but now you can claim your username ready to take on the world when Super Bomberman R arrives and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe later next month.
Head over to your Nintendo Account profile page, you’ll see under User Information there’s a place to set your User ID.
Choose wisely as while it seems you can change it as often as you like, if you change your mind there’s no way yet to go back to your old one.
