Miiverse is now available on Nintendo 3DS

The latest system update for Nintendo 3DS finally gives the platform access to the Miiverse, Nintendo announced today.

The update lets users register a Nintendo Network ID to their system, or use their Wii U ID to combine Nintendo eShop balances and Wish Lists. Users will need a broadband connection for full access to the Miiverse; however, there is also an offline mode where you can queue posts and manually post them once a wifi connection is established.

Other updates include the removal of the five-time limit on transferring 3DS data to a new console and the launch of the camera app.

While both Wii U and 3DS are now technically unified, however, The Verge reports Nintendo is currently suffering network issues that return a connection error when attempting to access the eShop.
