Accounts on Wii U

About The Author
Jeremy Hardin
Jeremy's love of gaming, especially Nintendo started in the late 80's when his parents bought him and his older brother an NES. Many hours were spent playing Mario and Duck Hunt. Eventually Jeremy graduated to bigger and better games and systems, like the SNES, GC, Wii, 3DS, and finally to the Wii U. Ask him what the defining moment of his childhood gaming was and he'll answer, "the day I beat Zelda 2." To this day that game holds a special place in his heart. His favorite types of games are platformers. Jeremy started blogging for NintendoFuse in October 2010. He started off as a lurker on the forums who won a free copy of And Yet It Moves on WiiWare. From there he realized he liked the forums and the site and wanted to remain a part of it. He was brought on board shortly thereafter and has helped post news and reviews for the past couple of years. Currently Jeremy has taken a step back to focus on family and school. He assists in minor back-end site maintenance from time to time.

    So, he says a Network ID acts as a Friend Code. But what will an ID look like? Will it be a name or a FC? Seems like it will be an actual name, but he never actually gave an example of what it will look like, unless I missed something.

      I believe I saw in one of the videos and also in a screenshot over at Neogaf that the id will be a name. I could be wrong. Anyone able to confirm or deny this?

        Steve’s comment is what I was talking about in my other comment. They kept on specifically saying that to use certain features/functions will require a Network ID, and were being very specific with that word. It seems there may be multiple accounts, but the system “friend code” is what will help parents control the video chat and online features?

        Again, they have a week to clarify this, but Bill Trinen’s didn’t answer much at all (if anything).
