The Nintendo Account will allow users to easily register their accounts through Nintendo’s own systems, via email or through social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
The account system will allow users to directly purchase digital downloads on the spot, set up member profiles, play records, and receive notifications and gifts. The service also features a points system, details of which were shared during a recent investor meeting.
Once registered, you will be taken to your profile which currently lists information about yourself, your location, and any accounts which you have linked to your Nintendo Account. While there doesn’t appear to be anything else that you can do with the account at this moment, we expect Nintendo to reveal more information about the service in the near future.
