Call of Duty Ghosts Wii U

How to download the Free Fall DLC if your NNID is younger than 18.

If you try to download the DLC and the eShop says: "You are not old enough to view or purchase anything about this title." Then this step by step process will help you obtain it.

1. Make another NNID that is older than 18, it shouldn't take that long. (You can use the same email for this one as the one your trying to play it one.)

2. Plug a flash drive into the USB Port of the Wii U(Note: It will delete EVERYTHING from the flash drive, so all important files should be moved onto a safe location.) Also, if you want to know if your USB is supported by the U, go here:

FAQ External USB Storage for Wii U | Wii U - External Storage Device , it should be under the "External USB sources that have been tested to been supported by the Wii U", personally, I used a Cruzer 4GB.

3. Once the flash drive is formatted, on your gamepad you should be able to see a small blue USB symbol in the lower left of your Wii U home menu.

4. Once this is visible, go onto Ghosts and when it asks, click "Go to the eShop." on the MP Menu.

5. Agree and download.

6. Now, once you've finished downloading, it will send you back to the 1st screen it sent you to on the eShop. Press Home, and go to "Download Management."

7. You should see "Call of Duty: Ghosts Downloadable Content."

8. Click the game, it should ask you to wait for it is installing DLC.

9. Once it's done, your good, you have the DLC on any other NNID you make as well because it is on an external harddrive.

10. Enjoy the Game!

I had the same issue, but the age wasnt the problem, the problem was the region of my NNID (south america). Anyways I created a new NNID (changing the country on system settings to US before creating the new NNID) and it worked. And, I didnt need to plug any USB flash drive. Once the content is downloaded and installed it can be used by any other user/NNID on the console.

  • The DLC in 16+, not 18
  • About the age you can download something "for adults" at late time (after 23:00 or 11pm if you prefer...at least here in Europe because Nintendo of Europe has its registered office in Germany so it must respect German laws) without changing your age
  • You don't need to plug an external drive to download it, the map requires only few MBs of free space

Here in America, it's 17+, but we can download M rated content at any time. FREEDOM!!!...except those towns where you can't buy alcohol past a certain time.

I wish Nintendo would just auto ban anyone that's under 18 from playing Call of Duty online,

Or just perma-mute them. I still need easy kills.

They should just do some sort of test that weeds out all these idiots, because there's some pretty decent 15 year olds out there, and some pretty annoying grown men as well.

That would wipe out half the community or more.  Hard enough to find good matches late at night as it is.

But then you couldn't play another CoD game, you clearly didn't think this cunning plan through.

Wait, I was gonna make a discussion like this but i guess you beat me....

Anyway, when i did it, i didn't need a flash drive...

Why would a flash drive be important anyway?
