In what will come as welcome news for many, it’s looking likely that Nintendo’s Wii U console is set to get rid of friend codes for good, meaning you’ll be able to play all games online without having to exchange long codes.

Ubisoft Producer Adrian Blunt had the following to say on the matter when speaking to MTV Multiplayer:

“Rather than using friend codes, which we’ve had in the past, we’re able to connect players in a much easier way, which allows us to have a community that’s playing together in the game.”

Similarities to the Xbox Live gamertag was also mentioned, thus it’s looking like the Wii U will have a much smoother and likeable online experience.
