Nintendo is anticipating issues with servers over the weekend of Christmas, which may prevent users from making Nintendo Accounts and on their new Nintendo Switch consoles. Posted via Twitter “If you’re planning to play with this feature of the Nintendo Switch family for the first time, we suggest creating the account in advance,” Nintendo’s Japanese customer service account says.
Certain bundles, such as the well-known Nintendo Switch Black Friday bundle which comes with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, include digital codes. Make sure that you redeem these otherwise you risk being not able to redeem them for a couple of days.
How do I create an online Nintendo Account online?
The process of creating a Nintendo online is fairly simple. Go to the Nintendo Account website and click on the “Create a New Nintendo Account click. You’ll be asked to verify that the account owner is age 15 or less (a children’s account) or if they are aged 16 and over. Select the option you prefer and click “Proceed”.
Nintendo accounts for children below the age of 15 are managed by a parent's or guardian's account. This means you can limit your child's purchases and receive alerts about his or her activities. To create a child's account, sign up using the instructions below.
