We’ve previously heard rumors of the Nintendo 3DS ditching Friend Codes in 2013 in favor of Nintendo Network ID‘s, and we’ve known that Miiverse will become accessible from the handheld console by the end of the year. However, newly surfaced rumors suggest that both additions will become available to Nintendo 3DS users via a firmware update that is supposedly releasing this fall, according to Nintendo Force writer Emily Rogers.
3DS getting Miiverse/Nintendo Network ID firmware update this Fall. Won’t be too long of a wait.
