    I got that too last night. Turned the 3DS on and the blue notification light lit up for a quick 3-4 seconds and turned off and there wasn't even a little blue dot next to the notifications button, but I clicked it anyways and there was an unread message which was the test which takes you to the eShop.

    When clicking Launch Software it just loads the eShop. Not a big deal or anything to worry about if you didn't receive this notification.

    Nintendo may be getting ready to send, eshop update news, using spotpass

    like the weeks eshop update, and/or updates of what coming to the eshop

    Are all you guys ambassadors? Maybe Nintendo is wanting to see if they can send a spotpass message correctly for the GBA games?

    That sounds like the most reasonable.

    I got it and I'm an Ambassador. Just figured I'd let you know to help find out.

    i would think if it has to do with the ambassadors
    it would the be a 3ds ambassador certificate spotpass Notification , NOT eshop spotpass Notification
