Reaction: Wii U's Social Potential Takes Shape

With just 11 days until Wii U arrives in North America — at the time of writing — it's perhaps surprising that substantial details on Nintendo's online services have taken so long to emerge. That said, it's not unprecedented, as Nintendo often likes to keep its cards close to its chest, withholding details and then releasing them on its own terms. It's undoubtedly an effective way to build anticipation, with snippets and hints eventually dispelled, in many cases, with a Nintendo Direct broadcast, a series of videos that have transformed Nintendo's relationship with its most enthusiastic supporters.

Nintendo Life explores what we learnt today about Miiverse, WaraWara Plaza, Wii U Chat and more. (Industry, Miiverse, Nintendo, WaraWara Plaza, Wii U)
