1 step closer to a unified account system.

1 step closer to entering 2001.

That looks different to my screen... must've had some updates in the few months since I went on it last.

Single account for a 3DS store would be upgrade as well, instead of downloads been tied to the device and needing support to move them across.

Yay! I can finally use that free $30 credit toward Pikmin 3. I had a feeling waiting would pay off, although I expected the wait to be much longer. :3

Unified Nintendo Network ID's means unified friends list, right Nintendo? 3DS doesn't need friend codes ones we can use our Nintendo Network ID.

It's almost the same as the original UI. In fact, I think it might be. That screen in just zoomed in to have only two rows of apps.

They aren't unifying the systems under one ID, they are just combing the purses on both shops and letting you access one purse in the future. Specifically, you can register your 3DS on your Nintendo ID, but they didn't say anything about adding Nintendo Network functions to the 3DS, so friend code lists and such will be staying.

That's a bummer, but at least they're starting to unify their online networks.

I am actually pretty excited for the Miiverse coming to the 3DS. It did seem interesting enough on the Wii U.

The extra amount that I have on my Wii U can be used to get Mighty Switch Force 2 on the 3DS now.

This is what we should have gotten from the start, but whatever, no point in complaining anymore.

Now have games tied to the accounts and you guys are back in the year 2006.

Yeah that sort of odd Wii U feature that lets players post images, tips or insight into various "communities" is coming to Wii U.
I think you mean 3DS.

My 3DS has been put in a dust-proof drawer for quite a while now.

Wow, this sounds a bit thrilling. Although I don't have the Wii U, I have the 2DS, so I can get the Miiverse on it, right?
