With just over a week left before Nintendo Switch launches, Nintendo has allowed for Nintendo account user IDs to be registered for their new console.

The new registration is apparently set to replace the older Nintendo Network ID from previous consoles, reports Engadget.


This information was initially funneled from a known source of Nintendo-related updates, Wario64.
