Cool updates incoming for the Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo held one of their public broadcasts last night and this Nintendo Direct was aimed at squarely at the 3DS with a slight emphasis on the Wii U. Some amazing games were shown off but the more exciting announcements were happening in the back end for Nintendo.


The big one is that the Wii U and the 3DS will finally have a unified account that is able to share account credit across both consoles as long as you use the same Nintendo Network ID. This has been a feature that pretty much everyone has been asking for and it seems that Nintendo are finally listening to their fans. The social app on the Wii U, Miiverse, will also be coming to the 3DS so you’ll be able to post messages, drawing and more for your friends as long as you have an internet connection.

And popular video streaming site, YouTube, will also be coming to the handheld in the form of an app. All these changes and more will be coming to the 3DS sometime next month which will make a nice Christmas present for eager fans.
