Nintendo’s Unified Account System, Nintendo Account, to Open Feb. 17, 2016

Last night we reported on Nintendo’s Japanese slides from their Shareholder’s meeting, specifically that Miitomo and My Nintendo plan to launch in March 2016. However, in the set of today’s translated slides (seen below), a note was added clarifying that Nintendo’s new unified account system, Nintendo Account, will begin registration worldwide on February 17, 2016.

Nintendo Accounts began in Japan December 2015, and has allowed for tailored messages from Nintendo, personalized “Just For You” discounts, Birthday discounts, and an online storefront that links to respective consoles.
