Remember how 3DS was supposed to be getting the Miiverse functionality of the Wii U? Well, I think Nintendo forgot. There hasn’t been a word on an update for the Nintendo handheld. It’d be neat to see the Wii U and 3DS become interconnected with Nintendo Network IDs and Miiverse communities. Nintendo has promised us this functionality, but we’ve yet to hear anything about it.
However, Emily Rogers, a writer at Nintendo Force, has recently stated that the 3DS will be getting an update this fall. The firmware upgrade will add Miiverse integration to the system, as well as Nintendo Network IDs.
I’d love to see this finally arrive. Nintendo has yet to say a word on the matter, but the update should hopefully be coming soon.
3DS getting Miiverse/Nintendo Network ID firmware update this Fall. Won't be too long of a wait.
