The new impending Nintendo 3DS update that was revealed last night has a bit of a down side to it.
Sure the new update will bring Miiverse, but also it’ll bring shared eShop balances to both the Wii U and 3DS through the Nintendo Network ID system. That means if you spend or add money to any Wii U or 3DS linked with the same NNID the balance will be shared across.
Nintendo has shared a Q&A about the new update and it’s got some really worrying news in it, especially for Europeans and Australians.
When the new update hits and if you link a Nintendo Network ID (which will be required for demos and free applications) you will no longer be able to change your systems region and use the eShop in another currency.
