Friend Codes officially a thing of the past on Wii U
User-created IDs to replace code system entirely
Nintendo revealed today that multiple user IDs could be stored on the Wii U, allowing a household of gamers to have their own personal data on a single console. A bold step forward, but there's been some confusion as to what these IDs mean -- will they signal the end of friend codes?
We went straight to the source, Nintendo (obviously), to get a straight and clear statement on the issue. Are friend codes a thing of the past? According to what we were told, it would appear so!
"Our plan is replace Friend Codes with a much more user-friendly Account ID system," a spokesperson told us, "which employs user-created account names."
