Something exciting this way comes?
We're used to Nintendo Network Maintenance taking place and impacting certain features of our consoles, but next week's work could be the prelude to something very interesting. Nintendo has confirmed that there will be a bit of downtime taking place from Monday that will mean that Wii U and 3DS users will be...
Three minutes of clean graphics and jaunty music
The latest major 3DS system update has arrived, bringing Miiverse, the Nintendo Network ID and shared eShop balances to the portable. There are various aspects to figure out, and we've put together a detailed guide for you. In any case, if you want a snappy, quick introduction to get you started with...
Say hello to version 7.0.0-13
Since its launch the Wii U has introduced the Nintendo Network ID and Miiverse, the latter of which was promised for the 3DS when it was revealed just before E3 2012.
