Update: Full patch can be found after the break.

Nintendo has released the latest firmware update – version 7.0.0-13 – for the 3DS, and it’s a big one.

First, Miiverse is now fully supported on the 3DS. After installing the new firmware, you should see a new icon on the home menu that will allow you to access the online community.

Today’s update also brings about Nintendo Network IDs on the 3DS. Names registered on Wii U can now be used on the 3DS and eShop balances can be combined. Alternatively, a Nintendo Network ID can be created from scratch.

A StreetPass update is also available, though we’re not quite sure what it adds at present.
