I am trying to find a Wii U used, and many of them are the editions that came with a pre-installed game (MK8, 3D World, etc). Will these games be playable if I buy the system and link to my own Nintendo account?

Also, I assume that the game came with some code as well so that you can link to an account and re-dopwnload if you ever delete it. If that code was already used, I'd assume I'm out of luck if the game is ever uninstalled.

Yes, the game is tied to the system. When I got the WiiU with super mario I didn't need to sign in or download it to play.
