Satoru Iwata announced at the Second Quarter Financial Results Q&A that Nintendo is busy preparing a new Nintendo Direct presentation to show off everything Miiverse can do. He also shared a slide commenting on the pillars of Miiverse. We of course already knew that Miiverse will work as a social network service for sharing gaming experiences with others and that developers will be able to integrate Miiverse into their games in various game-specific ways, but we didn’t quite know that basic Miiverse functions will be available for every game regardless of developer participation.
The slide also features a new Miiverse logo, which I don’t believe we’ve seen before. You can see it in the image above.
We’ll bring you more information about the timing of the Nintendo Direct presentation when it becomes available to us. In the meantime, all we know is that it will be sometime between now and the launch of Wii U.
“Miiverse” is a new network service which connects those who play games, and we plan to start it at the same time as the launch of the Wii U system. As it would take me a long time to elaborate on “Miiverse” here, we are currently preparing a Nintendo Direct video to explain about it in detail before the launch of Wii U.
