Remove Wii Shop Channel Account

The user can clear information from the Wii Shop Channel account by selecting this option. This erases the entire record of the Wii Shop Channel account, such as registered Wii Points and downloaded software. After this process, the account cannot be recovered. Software stored to an SD card after removing the account will be invalidated. This action is usually done so before transferring the ownership of the console.

Before removing his or her Wii Shop Channel Account, the user enters the serial number of the Wii console. If Parental Controls are being used, the PIN will need to be entered.
