Talking Point: Miiverse and Social Networking

In the past week, two particular news items and events have made Nintendo Life think about the future role of Miiverse on Wii U, and why it could be vitally important to the system. On the one hand, Satoru Iwata spoke to Kotaku to explain that Miiverse will be a ”social graph” for gamers, highlighting that the service will aim to do more than merely provide a competent competitive multiplayer environment, but also bring single player experiences into a community of empathetic gamers. The other key event was a Mario Kart 7 community night, advertised through an article on the site and through plenty of tweets. It's an experience that is fun, but could be so much better with enhancements that will be possible through Miiverse.

So, how will Miiverse potentially change single and multiplayer interaction between gamers, first on Wii U and eventually 3DS? Nintendo Life has a look from both perspectives, in terms of what we know and what we hope to see from the service. (3DS, Mario Kart 7, Nintendo, Wii, Wii U)
