Wii U and 3DS will get a unified online account system
Nintendo has revealed that they will be introducing a unified account system for the 3DS and the Wii U when they launch their new home console later this year.
Tying the two systems would be the first step towards any kind of cross-compatibility between the 3DS and the Wii U similar to what Sony are beginning to implement between the PS3 and the PS Vita.
Nintendo representative David Marshall said, "A unified account system will be implemented later this year with the launch of the Wii U. Eventually this same account system will be made compatible with Nintendo 3DS systems."
"At this time we have no additional details to offer and nothing to indicate how or if this will work outside the United States and Canada," he went on. "In the meantime, if the system has a problem, taking it to an Authorised Service Center will maintain the Nintendo eShop account. If the system is stolen, we can transfer the account to a new system once we are provided with a valid police report."
