    Nintendo is now allowing users to create a new user ID for the Switch. Now, you might think you already have an account set up, in the form of a NNID, but a Nintendo Network ID is different from what the Switch will be using. You can sign into your Nintendo Account here, where you can create a username that you want to use for when the Switch launches. Scroll down to "user ID", and click edit. You'll get a verification code to your email, and once entered, you can create a 6+ character username. The time is now to register to get your favorite username!

    This isn't anything new. It has been around since FE: Heroes launched. Had to link Nintendo Network ID to the Nintendo account for the game's full features to be excessable

    I would have given it back to him though after he complained and I got my troll appetite satisfied. :P

    Hopefully "Incineroar" or "Torracat" hasn't been used

    Yeah was gonna say. I noticed it the day Heroes launched when I was linking the account and checking the settings.

    Not a fan of how it has to be lowercase though. :(

    I already have my name though (not this one, someone else can have it lol). Yay.

    It's taking me to the 'Password Reset Page' instead. Why is that?
