Update – The 3DS Miiverse system update is now live.

A tweet from a Nintendo Force writer has surfaced claiming that a scheduled maintenance day for the 3DS could be coming as early as today. Early last November, Nintendo had announced that the Miiverse and unified eShop accounts would be a part of the update to the Nintendo 3DS. However, as more information trickled in, it was later revealed that the 3DS’ friend codes would still be in place as opposed to a unified system account.

Still, this tweet from the writer seems to point to something of a surprise might be in store for 3DS owners. What could it be? Possibly unified accounts may still be play, but many will soon find out once or if the update is implemented this week.

For years, he has purchased every one of the company's subsequent products (yes, including the Virtual Boy and eReader). It wasn't until he was a young teen when he bought a PS2 that he began to embrace cross-console relations, a decision he doesn't regret. When he's not gaming, Harrison is looking to break into the magazine journalism industry and realize his dream of becoming a features reporter.
