What Is a Nintendo Account Family Group?


A Nintendo Account family group allows up to 8 Nintendo Account users to connect together in one group. Family groups can include:

  • One admin account to manage the group

  • General Nintendo Accounts

  • Supervised Nintendo Accounts (usually for children aged 16 and under)

  • Parent / guardian accounts to manage Nintendo eShop restrictions for supervised accounts in the group. (Other types of Parental Controls can be managed on-device and/or via the dedicated smart device app.)

Note that My Nintendo activity (missions, My Nintendo points, etc.) is not shared between members of a family group. My Nintendo points can only be viewed and redeemed by the member that earned the points.
