If I buy a used Wii U with downloaded games

#1Mikejl87Posted 9/12/2013 9:03:57 PM
Can I reformat the system and create a Nintendo ID without losing those games?

I was able to do it with a 3DS but of course the 3DS doesn't have an account system so I was asking to see if its the same situation or not

Thanks

I'd say the best thing to do is just delete the user and not format the console. This will ensure you keep the downloaded games.

Yeah, just delete the user and keep the games for yourself.

Thanks for the help! Looks like I'll be a Wii U owner pretty soon

You have to delete the games.

WAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIT!!!!!!!!

Maybe you should ca Nintendo first. Ask them what to do. That way you don't accidentally screw yourself.

If Platinum was HAND drawn, she'd be on paper, fool. This is a video game. They just made her on screen, no "drawing" involved -Delano7 on BlazBlue
