Nintendo Accounts Hacked with Security Breach

Nintendo recently announced in a press release (originally published in Japanese) that ID and password information for Nintendo Network IDs (NNIDs) have been “obtained illegally by some means other than our service” since the start of April.

Due to this security breach, Nintendo has disabled login capabilities into Nintendo Accounts via a NNID for over 160,000 accounts.

As a result of this incident, information such as nicknames, date of birth, country or region, email address and gender associated with the NNIDs and Nintendo Accounts have all been compromised.
