How to Change the NNID Linked to the Nintendo Account


A Nintendo Network ID (NNID) has been linked to the wrong Nintendo Account.

What to Do:

  1. Sign in to the Nintendo Account that is currently linked to the Nintendo Network ID.
  2. Unlink the Nintendo Network ID from your Nintendo Account.
    • If you created your Nintendo Account with your NNID, you will need to link an additional service (different NNID, Twitter, etc) OR create a Nintendo Account password before you can remove the link.
  3. You can now link a new NNID to the Nintendo Account and/or link the NNID to a different Nintendo Account.
