Nintendo 3DS Miiverse won’t have messages or friend requests


While it’s great news that the Nintendo 3DS is finally getting the Miiverse, it looks like some of the functionality will not be available on the handheld device. An enterprising NeoGAF member contacted Nintendo Customer Service to find out why the Nintendo 3DS version of Miiverse didn’t have messaging icons and was told its because the Miiverse on 3DS does not support messages between friends or the ability to send and receive friend requests.

The only thing it does support on the handheld is the community features, so you can browse individual communities and check out posts but if you want to be able to talk to friends on the go you’re out of luck for now.
