Now Is The Time To Claim Your Nintendo Switch ID, It Seems

Go, go, go.


With the Nintendo Switch lined up to launch in just a few short weeks, one more important development has come to light, it seems. According to Kotaku, Nintendo is now letting people claim their own Nintendo Account User IDs for the soon-to-launch console.

The site reports that people who already have a Nintendo Account might not have a Nintendo Account User ID, so if you want to reserve something special, now seems to be the time to do so.

Go to this website-- get started.

The Nintendo Switch launches on March 3, priced at $300. In other news, the digital file sizes for some games, including Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8, have been announced. Additionally, Nintendo says some of the Switch systems that showed up in the wild early were stolen and resold illegally.
