Using a Nintendo Account to purchase download games on the official Nintendo website

To be able to purchase download games on the official Nintendo website, you'll need to have a Nintendo Account, and you'll need to have visited the Nintendo eShop on the device you wish to download on at least once. If you plan to download on a Wii U or a Nintendo 3DS family system, the Nintendo Account must also be linked to a Nintendo Network ID and your funds usable through the Nintendo Account must be merged with the funds tied to your Nintendo Network ID.

You can log into your Nintendo Account at the top of each page on the official Nintendo website. You can create a Nintendo Account at accounts.nintendo.com. If you have questions about Nintendo Account, please contact service@nintendo.de.
