Nintendo 3DS Update Live


The update to the Nintendo 3DS that brings MiiVerse, Nintendo Network IDs and combined eShop balances is now live after yesterday’s maintenance update to the firmware.

The addition of Nintendo Network IDs to the 3DS allow users to have the same ID on their DS as they do on their Wii U. It also makes it easier to track how much you have available as eShop balance without having to check another system.

If you don’t have a Wii U, or a network ID, you will have to create one before you can access the MiiVerse. The MiiVerse allows players to interact with one another whether it’s doodling with friends, or sharing screenshots.

Have you tested out the new MiiVerse on 3DS? Leave a comment below, and let us know your experiences with it thus far.
