Yesterday NeoGaf user Trike posted visual proof that he 'accidentally hacked' the Miiverse, unveiling the possible existence of 'Yoshi's Land'. It was one of the low points of a troublesome Wii U launch, but now Nintendo has responded to the situation, claiming that the user had accessed a 'mock-up' of a back end system, not the actual system itself. According to Nintendo, that 'mock-up' has now been disabled.
"It has come to our attention that some people were able to access a mock up menu on Miiverse following the launch of Wii U in the US," said the statement, sent to GamesIndustry International. "Please note that this was only a mock up menu and has now been removed and is not accessible."
Regardless of whether the menu was a mock-up or not, the whole situation has been a little embarrassing for Nintendo, particularly in the context of the Wii U's troubled launch.
Hopefully the litany of issues will be fixed for the Wii U's launch in Australia.
