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, simply link your Nintendo Network ID to your Club Nintendo account. To do this, please follow these steps:

If you are already a Club Nintendo member:

  1. Connect your Wii U console to the Internet and perform a system update – this will add Nintendo eShop to your Wii U
  2. Touch the Nintendo eShop icon on the Wii U Menu or HOME Menu to start Nintendo eShop
  3. If you're accessing Nintendo eShop for the first time, you will be prompted to link your Nintendo Network ID to your Club Nintendo account
  4. Alternatively, select "Menu" from within Nintendo eShop, select "Settings / Other" and "Club Nintendo Account", then follow the on-screen steps to perform the link

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.
