Question regarding downloaded games

#1chipoltlePosted 1/27/2014 6:32:56 PM
If I was to sell my wii u and then buy a new one later on down the road, would the games I digitally obtained be lost or are they tied to your nintendo ID and can be downloaded later again. Tried looking this up but couldn't find any answer. Any answer would be helpful. In need of money and thinking of selling for now til a later date.

For the most correct answer, the best choice of action is to call them. The subject remains slightly ambiguous, but the games are indeed tied to your NNID, not your console. Your NNID, however, is tied to your console, unless Nintendo Support will transfer it to another console for you. I have no idea what their policy is on this, but I know that it is possible, especially in the event of a broken machine.

edit: Oops, I looked up the number for you before typing this, and forgot to include it.
