Book your unique User ID for Nintendo Switch

"Over the course of my time with Breath of the Wild, I've had repeated problems with the left Joy-Con controller partially or even completely losing sync from the Switch console while docked and connected to my television". The system update downloads in the background, is created to install quickly, and doesn't disrupt gameplay.

If you have left over balance in your 3DS and Wii U accounts you're in luck, as those funds will be available for use on Switch so long as you've linked your Nintendo Account and NNID together.

The Nintendo Switch launches March 3, retailing for $299.

The first exclusive indie game is FAST RMX, which is an anti-gravity racing game. More game titles compatible with the Nintendo Switch are expected to be announced soon or before its launch date in March. Nintendo fail to share any reasoning why this is the case, nor when they believe it will become available: "we will share more information in the future".

In an earlier report, published on Friday, it was reported that a few customers had received their Nintendo Switch consoles early. Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove will be exclusive to Nintendo Switch for a limited time.

"The biggest current issue with the Switch is one of basic reliability", Polygon's pre-review stated.

Following reports that suggested the Nintendo Switch will not allow users to access certain features at launch, Nintendo has now confirmed that one of those features will be the Virtual Console. If you want to try and get one, you're probably going to have to be one of the first in line. Instead, you'll just need your Nintendo Account information and your new User ID to use online features and access past purchases as well as make new ones. Based on preorder numbers, it appears that the upcoming Switch will be no different, but one retailer (GameStop) is promising that they will have a limited number of Nintendo's elusive console in stock. Nintendo Account users might think this sounds a lot like the Nickname they already have.
