When the Wii U launches later this year, Nintendo will link accounts between their home and portable systems. A unified eShop account was confirmed to be forthcoming by customer service rep David Marshall in respsonse to a customer's query that GoNintendo received.

"A unified account system will be implemented later this year with the launch of the Wii U," said Marshall. "Eventually this same account system will be made compatible with Nintendo 3DS systems. At this time we have no additional details to offer and nothing to indicate how or if this will work outside the United States and Canada. In the meantime, if the system has a problem, taking it to an Authorized Service Center will maintain the Nintendo eShop account. If the system is stolen, we can transfer the account to a new system once we are provided with a valid police report."

Linked accounts may allow content to be moved between devices, speculated Gamesindustry. Marshall's message additionally revealed that the digital format of New Super Mario Bros. 2 will, as of now, not be available in Latin America.

"Of course, you asked this question because of the upcoming launch of New Super Mario Bros. 2 in retail and digital formats," says Marshall. "What you need to know is that the digital format will only be available in the United States and Canada. We have nothing to announce regarding Latin American availability."

The WIi U is slated for launch sometime later this year.
