Nintendo will soon disable Facebook and Twitter logins

Nintendo is discontinuing support for account login and creation through Twitter and Facebook. You’ll have to log in using your Nintendo account username and password, or your associated Google or Apple account, beginning October 25th.

If you are prompted to sign in again once the new policy is implemented, just provide the email address or username connected with your Nintendo account. You may also use your Google or Apple accounts if you have already connected them to your Nintendo account.

Linking your account to Twitter or Facebook not only makes it quicker to sign in, but also makes it easier to add friends, since Nintendo may find new people to join from either account. However, since Nintendo upgraded its Switch Online mobile app to make adding friends easier, you no longer need Twitter or Facebook to expedite the process.

Additionally, Nintendo confirmed that picture sharing on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS would be discontinued on October 25th, which means you will no longer be able to share photographs to Twitter or Facebook using either device. Any photographs or comments uploaded after the cessation will still be accessible through Twitter or Facebook. This isn’t surprising given that Nintendo has been gradually removing functionality from the 3DS and Wii U, with both eShops due to close on March 27th, 2023.
