I want to sell my Wii U, and heard that you can't keep the digital games if you remove the NNID from the console.

What I wonder is, can I set up the console to ask for the password to use the account so the person cant access it yet use another user to play the downloaded games? Just trying to be nice and keeping the digital games for the buyer.

Just unplug your Wii U and then change your password on your PC at Nintendo's site.

I've forgotten my password more than once and had to reset it there. My Wii U and my 3DS have at various times gone several months without logging in with my NNID until I had a reason to bother logging the system back in after doing a password reset. Yet I've never been locked out of any of my games on either system.

I don't play it anymore and I have a Wii already. The only game I really want to keep is Mario Kart 8, but I'm getting a Switch someday so MK8 is there. Maybe WindWaker HD too.

I'm selling my switch now and resetted my console but the games are still there and work. Granted it came with the console so...

Just don't sell it with parental codes on....I bought a used wii u with parental settings on and i couldn't add or erase users or even go online. Thankfully I was able to guess the code and remove the settings.
