How to Link/Unlink an Epic Games Account From Your Nintendo Account


Information on how to link or unlink your Nintendo Account from an Epic Games account for titles such as Fortnite, Rocket League or Fall Guys.

Important: It is only possible to link one Nintendo Account to an Epic Games account. After linking your Nintendo Account to your Epic Games account, it will not be possible to switch the Nintendo Account linked even if you unlink the accounts.

Additional Information:

  • Linking an Epic Games account to your Nintendo Account allows you to access cross-play features within games where they are available.

  • If you don't choose to create a full account, an account will still be created with Epic Games using the display information that you choose. This account will be associated to your Nintendo Account.

  • Unlinking a Nintendo Account from an Epic Games account must be done by using a web browser to visit and cannot be done in-game.

Link an Account 

What to Do:

  1. Start the game on Nintendo Switch and select which user you wish to use.

  3. Select the option to either "Sign up," (create a new Epic account) "Log in," (Link an existing Epic account) or "No Thanks" (Use your Nintendo Account only to create a non-descript Epic account).

    • If you are not presented with any options to log-in, and instead the game starts, this indicates you have already linked an Epic account to your Nintendo Account. See the steps on unlinking if you wish to remove this link.
