It is now confirmed Nintendo Switch uses Friend codes as a way to add friends. There are other options like search for local users and add players you played with online. A major backward step from the Wii U, where friend code were abolished and now reintroduced.

I'm pretty sure the Friend codes are for the mobile game friends.

And yes.. Almost all Mobile games use Friend Code like things.

Seriously though, really? It's like they only took in half of what the community wanted. Friend codes are like klefki for Nintendo. It's just a reminder that this is still their product and everyone else can just deal with it.
Also @BORTZ sneaky :P

If that's true, nevertheless bringing back FC is backwards thinking. Still doesn't justify it.

You guys may not like it.. May refuse to see it.. But FC like numbers -are- modern. More things use those than names.

Now do I like it? No... at least don't keep being ignorant about this.
