Get a leg up on your Nintendo Switch by claiming your User ID starting today. As with Xbox Live and the Playstation Network, Nintendo is planning a paid subscription service for online access, including multiplayer lobbies and voice chat via a smart device.
The Nintendo User ID takes the same role that a Gamertag does on Xbox, replacing the hot-mess known as the Friend Code, which were strings of 12 randomly generated numbers needed on other Nintendo devices.
You can log in to your Nintendo Account here, scroll down, click to Edit “User Information”, and put a new User ID of at least 6 characters. Bam! You now are the proud owner of your very own Nintendo Switch User ID!
