    This blows out my fears that we were just getting access to miiverse via the slow browser. Looks like dedicated app will come or even better perhaps added into the OS.

    I'd recommend everyone to actually read the article. The quote is a part of the interview, but leaves out a lot more (actually my first thought was that sharing the experience was more about "Bob has played 4 hours of Animal Crossing and likes it" or "Bob has received achievement "Animal Crossing is fun"" than what Iwata describes in the source).

    I don't know about the 3DS and how much it could benefit from the possibilities, but I've had quite a few laughs with the WiiU drawing possibilities :3

    Dedicated app? No. This is going to be a full integration into the system menu.

    Or did you miss the part where he says "While playing"?

    >Just imagine the possibilities of playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf while sharing your experiences on the Miiverse. Now that’s something!

    Right...at this rate it doesn't seem like Animal Crossing will even GET released for other regions with them taking their good ol' time with the game.

    Considering there are 200+ 3DS games, it'll have to be huge.


    METAL GEAR SOLID MIIVERSE, PREPARE YOURSELF FOR MY CRUDE BIG BOSS AND EVA DRAWINGS!

    So I'm guessing this is going to be integrated into the OS itself? That way you can realistically write stuff on Miiverse by hitting the home menu without exiting the game you're playing?

    Definitely really, really cool. :D

    GET HYPE obviously.
    But this was inevitable, really. I mean, wasn't announced along with Miiverse anyway?

    How about games instead of Miiverse, Nintendo? Seriously getting sick of all this social crap that Nintendo keeps trying to lodge into their systems. Why not instead of trying to create some false sense of community between players who don't know one another, just do what everyone else does and let players create user accounts and have trophies. I thought the whole Mii concept was absolutely retarded on the Wii, now Nintendo is just making it worse. I am surprised I still have my Wii U to be honest, cause rather then devote their resources to making games, they waste time and money on casual garbage like Miiverse and micro game packages. The 3DS hasn't had a good game in over half a year and Nintendo continues to waste resources that could be better spent on the things that people are actually going to play.

    Trophies and achievements are stupid. I wish gaming would just stop with them. Also MiiVerse is awesome, I'm glad it's coming to the 3DS. Also half a year? Where the hell have you been and what have you been playing??? Just because games don't interest you, doesn't mean that good games aren't being released. So please, stop talking for everybody.

    + Mario Tennis Open

    And third-parties definitely did not give us Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, Resident Evil: Revelations, Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward, Code of Princess, Tales of the Abyss 3D, Kingdom Hearts 3D, Theateryhthm: Final Fantasy, Adventure Time, Professor Layton: Miracle Mask, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy, Nano Assault, Shinobi, Mutant Mudds, Tekken 3D, Rhythm Thief, Crimson Shroud, Denpa Men, Scribblenauts: Unlimited, Rayman Origins, Unchained Blades and Epic Mickey all this year.

    + Pokemon X/Y
    + Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

    People should really not expect too much, not until we get some actual videos of the 3DS version. That image above leads people to imagining Miis converging around game titles with chat bubbles... but that's not Miiverse. That's WaraWara Plaza.

    Iwata did not say anything about WaraWara Plaza.

    ...of course, I could be wrong in thinking that Warawara Plaza is different from Miiverse, which is pretty much just a glorified forum from what I reckon, but we'll see in a bit, won't we?

    EDIT: I just remembered this, and it's possibly one of the least-announced feature of Miiverse, but if it is going to be implemented on a system-firmware level, then Game Notes will finally have some use. Screenshots. Push Home, launch Game Notes, you've got yourself a frozen frame of the game, both 3D top screen and touchscreen. They just need to put an Export/Save Image button there somewhere. I'm thinking this is gonna be it. Finally. Not only are we gonna be able to take screenshots anytime in-game, but we'll be able to post it on the Miiverse and, you know, ask specific hints about that particular point in time.

    I love this post so much, I will probably hold onto it forever to link to any ignorant children who do not pay attention to what Nintendo does.

    Precisely! You are SO right. Nintendo is releasing no games for 3DS. It's not like we have Luigi's Mansion 2, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and Pokemon X/Y coming out. And it's not like 3rd parties are releasing Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate or Lego City: The Chase Begins.

    So yeah, you're right. no promising games for the 3DS at all.
