During a Nintendo Direct segment last month, Nintendo revealed that the Wii U’s highly acclaimed Miiverse social networking feature, as well as the Wii U’s Nintendo Network ID (NNID) system would be arriving on the Nintendo 3DS via a system update this month. One of the key features of this is that our 3DS and Wii U Nintendo eShop balances will be merged – allowing us to use the same pool of funds on both consoles.
Although no date was announced, server maintenance has been scheduled for today. A reliable source (who has chosen to not be named) has confirmed that after the maintenance ends later today, the system update will go live (which is scheduled to be at 5am GMT).
Are you looking forward to Miiverse on the 3DS?
