Enter The Miiverse. It's A World Nintendo's Invented.

The Miiverse is a "Mii universe" that is the system's redesigned networking and designed Mii Plaza.

Miiverse the new network service where Miis from around the world can meet. The redesigned Wii Plaza shows Mii clustered around various Wii U titles. This shows what games players are enjoying and what's popular. Nintendo also showed Miis leaving in-game messages.

Mii WaraWara, taken from the Japanese's "warawara" (the sound of things happening, in Japanese).

Even when the game isn't designed for online or even if the game's are not online, the Miiverse can still connect consoles and players. Think of it as a social networking system for the Wii U, the 3DS, and even your mobile device or PC.

A Nintendo spokesperson clarified that Miiverse, the Wii U's mainscreen, will be available from the day the Wii U goes on sale. However, the ability to access the Miiverse from 3DS handhelds, PCs, and mobile devices will come at a later date.


    I was actually impressed with most of the things in the presentation, EXCEPT for those posts clogging up the actual game screen (when NSMBMii was on) that would turn me off playing any game on the system. If it isn't optional then I won't be buying a Wii U.

      I am 99.99999% sure that it will be optional.
      Some parents simply don't want their children reading any text-based communication from other people, and given how sensitive Nintendo is to parent concerns, why would they shove it down our throats?

        Fair point, we are talking about Nintendo. I mean Imagine being immersed in the storyline of a game and having those comments pop up, it'd be awful.

    Wow Nintendo FINALLY caught up to what everyone else is doing

    Looks great. Can't wait to get my hands on a Wii U.

    they missed an oppurtunity to call it the Wii-u-mii-verse, or just U-Mii-Verse :P

      But it IS the Wii U Miiverse. Miiverse from 3DS handhelds, PCs, and mobile devices will come at a later date.

    I can't wait till it comes out for 3DS.
    I hope I can get the Wii U
