    Hello, 1st thread here.

    I bought a wii u used the other day. I would like to format it, but as I understand just simply formatting the system will not unlink the nnid.

    It says to delete the user, but I need a password, am I sol or is there a way to get it done?

    I have contacted seller but I don't know how they feel lending me a password for this.

    I would just like to make it my own.

    Thanks guys

    It doesnt really matter if this user is on it or not, you can still add new users.
    other than that you could try and use a file transfer program like filezilla to delete the user via nand, I wouldn't recommend that though, one small mistake and you're doomed.
    formatting the system is also an option.
    Ask the seller to change the password via the nintendo website to something simple.
