The 3DS got hit with update 7.0.0 yesterday, and it has introduced a bunch of new features. The update added things such as the Miiverse and Nintendo Network ID to the 3DS, as well as unifying user funds between the Wii U and 3DS eShop. For the full details, hit the jump!
Upon updating the 3DS, one of the first things that you will notice is the Miiverse icon that appears on the top right corner of the screen. The system will also prompt you to create a Nintendo Network ID account; if you already have an account on the Wii U, you can link that account to your 3DS instead. Be careful when linking the IDs though, as the 3DS is limited to one Nintendo Network ID. There’s other good news related to this too. The 3DS was previously limited to only 5 system transfers. With the implementation of Nintendo Network ID, you can now use the system transfer feature as much as you’d like to. This is great news for those who upgrade their handhelds frequently!
Another important update resulted in the unification of eShop currency. Basically, if you have a certain amount of money on your 3DS or Wii U, you can use that money between consoles, rather than having individual accounts for each. This is awesome news, as users now can now add a debit/credit card to their account and it’ll take effect across both consoles.
Some minor updates include an update to StreetPass Plaza, updating to version 3.3. This update links the Nintendo Network ID to the app itself. The Wii U and PC versions of Miiverse also received a small update. The “Report Spoilers” function can now be found under the “Report Violation” feature. Simply click on “Report Violation” and then select “Spoiler” from the drop-down menu.
That about wraps it up! What do you guys think about this new update? Do you like it? Have you been having any problems with it? Let us know in the comments!
