I'm trying to log in to my user account so I can access the saved games that are in it, but whenever I try to select that user, it prompts me to log in to my Nintendo Network ID. But I don't want that (I don't have internet right now), I just want to access that user offline.

Is there a way to do this? No entering anything just gives me an error...

You must have set a password, just enter your password, and you'll log in to the account on the Wii U, you'll have access to the account on the system, and when you're online you'll also have access to your eShop and everything else account. Just click on your Mii face on the top left corner, and remove the password. You'll be able to play offline on that NNID account.

Oh, I have a password set up. I want to access the account offline, but it won't let me, because I need to be connected to the internet to even log in to it... :/

You don't need internet to log in. Even with an NNID tied to your console account, it should simply say "unable to connect" or similar and still get you to the channel menu.

Now I saw what it's saying. It says that if I want to log in offline, enter the password I used last time I logged in. But that's the password that my Nintendo ID uses... so I think it defaults to trying to log me into Nintendo Network...

and the loop continues.

Nevermind, got it! Had to make a new password.
