    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:
    But there's more:
    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

    It would be nice if they did it for virtual consoles at least, since both the 3DS and WiiU have some of the same games in he virtual console.

    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?

    expect it to happen before the release of x and y... that way they can make people update to the new firmware

    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)?

    Thanks for saving me the trouble of thinking up a sarcastic way to say "this is like the third time". XD
