Product code

To create a Club Nintendo membership, just enter the PIN CODE from a product you have purchased here. You will find this on the product registration card that comes with your hardware/software:

Alternatively, if you don't have a product with a product registration card (for example, Wii U hardware), you can enter your Nintendo Network ID instead for a temporary membership: Use Nintendo Network ID

Where can I find the product code?

Inside the packaging of your selected Nintendo game or system you will find the Club Nintendo registration card. Locate your unique PIN#. You might need to scratch off a layer with a coin to reveal it.

I have neither a Nintendo system nor Nintendo games. What can I do now?

If you do not own a Nintendo product, you can still register for our newsletter and we will keep you up-to-date on the biggest Nintendo announcements.

How to register Wii U in Club Nintendo

Unlike other Nintendo products, the Wii U console does not come with a Club Nintendo registration card. To register a Wii U console in Club Nintendo, please follow these steps:

If you are already a Club Nintendo member:

Connect your Wii U console to the Internet and perform a system update – this will add Nintendo eShop to your Wii U Menu. Link your Nintendo Network ID to your Club Nintendo account, which will register your console with Club Nintendo.

If you are not already a Club Nintendo member:

Create a Club Nintendo account by registering a piece of software that contains a Club Nintendo registration code, then follow the instructions outlined above.
