Do you have any leftover Nintendo Point cards you are thinking about using for the 3DS Virtual Console? Well don’t. Keep them for your DSi and Wii wares. On the company’s Japanese site, Nintendo notes, “Prepaid Nintendo point cards cannot be used with the Nintendo 3DS. Prepaid point cards that can be used with the 3DS will go on sale at a later date.”
So there you have it. Nintendo again is changing up their virtual currency system making it a bit more complicated to jump between their consoles.
