The Wii and DS online experience left a lot to be desired, not in the least because of the awkward and unwieldy Friend Codes gamers were expected to input in order to play with one another. The old friend code system has gone the way of the dodo, however, at least according to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, who says “there are friend codes, but it’s not the existing friend code system”.
“What do I mean by that? Here’s what I mean: you will be able to identify people as friends and have a certain level of interaction vs. a different level of interaction for the more general population,” he explained.
“The method by which you identify someone as a friend is a lot simpler than what’s happening today with Friend Codes.”
