Hello, my name is SignZ. You probably remember me from other news like
[Rumor] Miiverse+NNID for 3DS coming in Fall?

or (at the end)
3DS Account System News Coming Later This Year (Rumour)

Well, today I bring you another, sweet-sounding, news.
Sweet Emily Rogers gave twitter another visit and look what that was about:

Not related to Direct -- Wii U/3DS getting shared eShop balances soon. Add $$ to Wii U, shows up on 3DS. Add $$ to 3DS, shows up on Wii U.
But there's more:

@Emi1yRogers Is this the first step towards a unified, server-based account system do you think, rather than hardware based?
Emily Rogers@Emi1yRogers 1h
@VG_Dave Yeah if you look at stuff like 3DS Miiverse/NNID and buying eshop stuff over phones/PC, it's inching in that direction.
Emily Rogers@Emi1yRogers 3m
@konjak By the end of this year, 3DS will have an NNID system like Wii U.
Now, to me at least, that sounds like we will finally get that account system we always dreamed of. :D

Sounds good to me. So will it replace the current FC system? So friends are now added to your NNID account. I think they will keep both options for games and ditch the FC completely on their next handheld.

Shared eshop account is awesome, now we need shared VC games. I doubt the latter without some small fee, but it's about getting ready for purchasing eshop content on smartphones/pc with your NNID account to your WiiU/3DS.

This is great news, wanting to pickup a Wii U, but wanted to wait for this. Although I wonder how Nintendo will compensate people (if they will) whom already have the same game on both the WIi U and 3DS.

Also Konjak responded! If you people don't know who he is I suggest you check out his site. He made a Legend of Zelda fangame which is amazing (and short) and is currently working on an amazing called The Iconoclasts .

I don't think they will go far as unified games

At this point, it'd only really be news if Nintendo suddenly decided not to unify their account system.

It's a bit ridiculous that it's taken them this long to get around to this, but hey, at least it's something. Baby steps, right?

Wait so gamesharing; like if I had my 3DS stolen and buy a new one 4 months later (btw this is rhetorical) I could load my gaems on my new 3DS rather than repurchasing them (similar to the PS3/PSP/PSV)?
