Nintendo 3DS eShop Points Can't be Used with Wii U

Nintendo 3DS eShop Points Can

Nintendo have confirmed that points purchased on one system, for example Nintendo 3DS, still can't be used on the Wii U.

In the Q&A session on Japanese website, a question raised was whether outstanding Wii Shopping points or 3DS eShop points could be transferred onto a Wii U. The short answer is no. The remaining balances must be used on the originating system. So if there's a pesky 100 points sitting in an account, it has to be either topped up or used.

With Nintendo planning Nintendo Network integration on the 3DS and mobile apps however, a more unified purchasing system and balance management could become available in the future.

Nintendo Network is already being used on the 3DS. In fact the first game that used it was MK7.
