Wii U and 3DS eShop Accounts Unified, Miiverse Now Available on 3DS

Posted on December 10, 2013 AT 05:39am

The latest system update for the 3DS has finally unified the Wii U and 3DS eShop accounts, in addition to giving 3Ds owners access to Miiverse on their handheld.

The unified eShop allows users to share a balance between both platforms and spend it on either, via their Nintendo Network ID. However, according to The Verge, Nintendo is currently suffering some network issues, locking out users from the eShop.

The Miiverse icon has been added to the top row of the 3DS menu, meaning that it can be accessed while in game. The update also brings a few other tweaks to the handheld, such as removing the five-time limit on transferring your 3DS’ data to a new handheld and the camera app can now be launched from the home screen by pressing L and R together.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
