One of the most infuriating things about owning a Wii U and a 3DS is the separation between the eShop accounts. Both the Wii U and the 3DS sport eShops with all sorts of digital games, but money must be placed on each account separately, which is naturally just inconvenient. These days may soon be over though, at least according to Emily Rogers.

Emily Rogers is not a Nintendo employee, but she does seem to have an uncanny amount of insight into what Nintendo is doing behind closed doors, predicating a number of things correctly in the past. Rogers is currently a writer for Nintendo Force magazine and NotEnoughShaders, where she gives her insight into Nintendo and the gaming industry at large. You can see her tweet above, which gives her confirmation of an eShop balance unification.

Ultimately, this is still a rumor, as Rogers is not an official Nintendo employee, but she is very clear and concise in what she is saying, which leads one to believe that she has some inside knowledge. Her sources in the past have not steered her wrong, and this may follow in the same footsteps. We will just have to wait and listen for an official confirmation from the Big N.

What do you think? Is your body ready for eShop balance unification?

Our Verdict

My first gaming memory is watching my older brother play Donkey Kong 64 and staring at the screen in amazement. From that point on I wanted in on the fun, and it drove me to become a gamer and took me to where I am today. I am very passionate about gaming and love the opportunity I have here to use my writing skills and combine them with this passion. Nintendo has my heart, but I expand onto all platforms, owning many gaming consoles and playing a wide variety of games. My favorite game of all time is Super Mario 64, with Okami coming in as a close second. Kingdom Hearts is probably my favorite overall series of games, and Wind Waker is my favorite Zelda game, although I believe Ocarina of Time to be the "best" one. I also loved Spirit Tracks. Aside from gaming, I am a student and heavily participate in Choir programs. I also participate in musicals from time to time, whether it be through stage crew or acting. For those concerned, I am a cat person, not a dog person.
