    God dammit Nintendo, it's 20fu**ing17 and you go back to a system that everybody hates and is
    clearly inferior? I don't see how this can go wrong...

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

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

    Between insane and insecure
    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

    No, this is not the only way of adding friends... You should verify your sources before posting...

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

    Are people missing the fact that the friend codes is just one way of searching for someone? It's right there..

    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.

    thats just one of the options, and I dont see any harm in an optional feature. thats not like they force you to use it...

    I was referring to the Wii and having to add friends with friend codes. The wii was released in 2006.
