In the upcoming Animal Crossing spin-off game Happy Home Designer it will be quite easy to share screenshots from the game. In addition to sharing pictures via various social media sites, which was something you could do in New Leaf, it will also be possible to post directly to Miiverse from within the game without having to return to the home menu. While this is a common feature in Wii U games these days, it hasn’t been used in a 3DS game before.

Posts have been made all across social media sending their condolences to Nintendo, as well as Iwata’s family, friends and co-workers while everyone reminisces on all the great memories he’s given through us throughout the years through Nintendo Directs, E3¬†presentations, his contribution to video games and a copious amount of events.

Thanks James for the heads up

Nintendo is changing up the way it handles restrictions on Miiverse. Going forward, restrictions will be applied to all accounts on the same system.

In a Miiverse post, Nintendo noted that, in the past, users would evade restrictions by creating a new Nintendo Network account or use a previously-created one. Doing so would allow them to bypass punishments. With the new “rule”, Nintendo will be able to prevent this in the future.
