Where? I don't see. I'm looking at the interface, but I don't see any requests or anything in Updates.
The way I do it: When I'm at the plaza in Splatoon, I hit the HOME button and the options of [Friend List] [Miiverse] [Notifications] and others I can't recall from memory.
The orange square [Friend List] is where you want to go iirc.
These are all good suggestions. How about a poll to see who has the popular vote? Also I've sent miiverse friend requests to all and sleepy (the blessed child) is the only accepted so far. Remember squiddos, we gotta be friends to squad up and what not.
Now I'm a blessed child? Awesome xP
I need to figure out a proper place for my Wii U that will allow me to play more often and more near my computer, and I need to also send some friend requests n.n
