Nintendo 3DS Update Adds Miiverse And Nintendo Network ID Support

Nintendo has one of the most popular portable game consoles on the market with the 3DS. Nintendo has been adding new features of the 3DS to make it more appealing to gamers. Earlier this month Nintendo added support for YouTube to the portable console.

Nintendo announced that a new update was coming to add more features to the 3DS in mid-November. That new update is now available for the 3DS. System update 7.0.0-13U adds support for Nintendo Network ID. That allows the user to create a new ID or register the same ID that they have for the Nintendo Wii U.

Once the Network ID is added or created on the 3DS, users can share their Nintendo eShop balances between the 3DS and Wii U and share Wish Lists as well. Nintendo is now requiring a Nintendo Network ID to download free content from the Nintendo eShop.

The other feature the new software update brings is support for Miiverse. Miiverse is an online social hub allowing players to connect via Mii characters. Users will be able to view or post comments from the 3DS, Wii U, and via a computer or other mobile device with the new update. The update will apply automatically to 3DS consoles running 2.0.0-2U and up on their portable.
