Hi guys, quick question.
If I were to delete my system data on my system, would I lose my pre-installed SSB and Splatoon?
Google search brings up a bunch of old results, and I'm trying to donate it but I don't want all my info on it.
Thanks

It should be tied to your Nintendo Network ID. Log into my.nintendo.com and check your account activity, see if the games are listed. I would call customer support if it's not and they can link them to your account so you don't lose them.

Digital purchases are still tied to hardware, not accounts (yet). Nintendo hasn't announced any changes to that policy, so it's still in place. When he donates the Wii U, the games purchased with and tiied to that console, go with it.
