Iwata’s Thoughts On Social Media Connectivity

Social media is part of our daily lives in one form or another.  When Nintendo hyped up the MiiVerse, I expected that there would be some sort of connectivity to Facebook, Twitter, etc.  However, when that connectivity was not there, I was not really surprised either.  Nintendo has always done “their thing” when it comes to gaming, so it is only natural that they created their own soci...

Mario Kart TV Can Share Replays

Nintendo has announced that Mario Kart 8 will include a feature known as Mario Kart TV. This feature allows players to share replays of their races on Miiverse. I’m sure there are more details to follow, but for now it seems like a move in the right direction.

Miiverse Code of Conduct: Understanding The Ban

Remember the first time you posted something that you found witty on the Miiverse, only to be rewarded with a deleted comment?  What about the time you posted your best doodle on the Miiverse, and found out you were banned for a couple days due to inappropriate content? Many have had those exact scenarios play out, only to be left wondering what they could have done to prevent such bans and deleti...

NintenDaan has posted a video to his YouTube account that shows new (albeit small) features have been added to Nintendo’s social network community, Miiverse.

In a post-financial briefing analyst discussion last week, Iwata discussed a few things of interest concerning the (fast approaching!) Wii U.

Well, good news, a Nintendo Direct is currently being prepared to shed some more light on this shadowed area of Nintendo’s future....

Nintendo of Europe Confirms: Mii Verse Will Not Connect to Facebook or Twtter
