When you first launch Palia on your Nintendo Switch, you'll encounter a few options:

B - Skip

  • If you skip linking your Switch account to a Palia account, you won't receive account linking rewards, refer-a-friend rewards, or Twitch drop rewards. 
  • You will not be able to link your account in the future if you continue without signing up or logging into a Palia account. You will not be able to access your progress or game data anywhere else.
  • Progress will only be available on the Nintendo Switch Profile you selected.

 

A - Link

There are two options when you select the Link option:

  • Link an Existing Account:
    • If you already have a Palia account with progress, choose this option.
    • Enter your email and password to link it to your Switch profile.
  • Create a New Account (- Button): 
    • If you push the - (minus) button, you will be redirected to the Palia account creation page.
      • If creating an account on the Switch, press X after completing the form to close the browser.
    • Alternatively, you can go to accounts.palia.com/sign-up on another device to create your Palia account.
      • Once created, use the email and password you used to create the account to link.

Linking Rewards

To receive these rewards, you have to link your account at the first prompt. Once you skip through these steps and decide not to link before playing Palia, you cannot link your account again and will miss out on the rewards.

After successfully linking your account, log in and check the "News" menu for rewards:

FAQ

I didn’t link the first time around, can I relink after to get the rewards?

We’re sorry, but unfortunately you cannot retroactively link and we cannot grant the rewards without linking. Please make sure you do this prior to starting your Palia experience on the Nintendo Switch. 

Can I still get the account linking rewards if I don’t link?

No, these are account linking reward exclusives - however, you can still receive the Founders Windmill and Freshly Painted Froggy Bucket reward as long as you log in during the available period.

When do the rewards become available and when will the rewards disappear?

  • The Leapfroggy Outfit will only be available as an account linking reward starting December 14, 2023 at 8:00am PT until January 14, 2024 at 11:59pm PT. 
  • The Mushroom Glider will be available starting December 14, 2023 at 8:00am PT  as an account linking reward and will be available for the foreseeable future. We’ll communicate early if we decide to end this promotion. 
  • The Founder's Windmill will only be available as a login reward until December 31, 2023 11:59pm PT.
  • The Freshly Painted Froggy Bucket will only be available as a login reward starting December 14, 2023 at 8:00am PT until March 14, 2024 at 11:59pm PT. 

Can I get these specific items in different ways?

They might be available in the future but there are currently no plans for now. 

I accidentally skipped the linking process at first and started playing, but now I want to link and play with my existing Palia account. How do I do that?

Currently, there is no option to log out and go back to the linking menu once you have skipped the linking process. Player Support can unlink your device from the account created on your Switch for you to go back to the linking menu. 

Disclaimer: The character you have created on your Switch and all in-game progress will be lost should you choose to unlink.

I linked the wrong Palia account on my Switch, how can I link it to the account I want?

Please reach out to Player Support and request for the current account to be unlinked. Once unlinked, you will be taken back to the linking menu. No progress will be lost as fully linked accounts support crossplay.

I skipped the linking process but now I want to be able to play on PC and get rewards, what do I do?

Player Support can upgrade your Switch account to a fully linked account. A fully linked account supports crossplay and can receive Refer-a-Friend rewards. Please reach out to Player Support by submitting a ticket through the QR code in the Switch client.

Disclaimer: The email address you will use to upgrade your account should not be linked to an existing Palia account. Switch accounts cannot be linked to an existing Palia account.
