Nintendo has released a trailer for Miiverse, the social layer they’ve added to the Wii U. It’s after the break.
How’d he die at 1:20?
probably didnt get a high enough score. or any free lives.
It’s some challenge to not touch the ground or something I think.
It was a special challenge mode where you die if you touch the ground.
It’s a challenge mode. Presumably the goal is to get as many 1ups as you can without touching the ground and he got 0… which is obviously not better than his record :)
Touched the ground. The goal was to reach at least 16-ups (a silver star) within one collective jump.
He’s not suppose to touch the ground before getting at least one 1UP.
i would totally be eating rice too >_< i leik these trailers yo.
This guy DOESN’T EVER SMILE!?
He’s Japanese. They never smile.
Myamoto smiles, only see him worried in just ONE pic
their eyes smile.
I thought that was black people?
Lol I think it’s a realistic representation of what anyone would look like playing the Wii U after a year or so. Not saying it isn’t fun, but next time you’re playing a game, note your expression. I bet you don’t smile much. At least I don’t :P But for a commercial, yeah, he should have looked happier.
The Wii U is always going to be awesome
Thats what my 3DS said mar. 27 2011….
But the 3DS is too! C’mon people!
Its pretty obvious PlayStation Home is much better :)
I agree but Nintendo has just started to get into the online thingy so give them credit.
Please tell me how Playstation home is better?
Whats wit the dislikes in my comment? I made a good point after all.
PS Home isn’t better at all
Not saying Miiverse is bad, but if it is, Nintendo just starting to get into the online thingy is not an excuse.
Well, you did say that you agree with that guy that PS Home is better than Miiverse when no one has even tried the Wii U yet. So it was pretty much agreeing with the judgement of a Sony fan AND it was bound to have the Nintendo fans coming at you with torches and pitchforks.
^ What he said.
WTF im a nintendo fan! I was just saying Sony has good online and im pretty sure the wii u will too now.
Playstation Home would have been awesome, IF it had been the PS3s main OS. But the fact I rarely use it because I have to THINK about going on it, then wait 5 minutes for it to load, it destroys the experience.
Then there is the fact they never implemented the main social features such as being able to view your game earned trophies in a 3D trophy room, share photos/video on TVs in your private space, charged a small fortune for your apartments, etc. In the end, there just isn’t much point to it all.
The fact the Wii U actually boots into this from the start is a big deal. It means that even if you don’t think you are interested in it, there is a chance you will spot a message you find interesting and be encouraged to reply. That is something which has never EVER happened to me in Playstation Home, people are mostly just messing about with no real interesting conversation going on.
It will never be used to it’s full potential, at least until the next playstation. The PS3 has a laughable amount of RAM compared to today’s gaming needs that just cannot, and will not be able to support such a thing. The Xbox has more RAM than it.
they’re two entirely different things. Home is just a side-dish. Miiverse can be used at any time and is social in a much more serious way. It will be used more frequently by a lot more people.
It takes SO MUCH FREAKING TIME TO LOAD! It sucks, and yes I have a ps3.
*Facepalm* you still remember that?!
Isn’t that damn thing STILL in beta?
soooooo…. you decided to come on a nintendo blog just to announce that? Hm noted. You should change your user name to “Obvious Ignorance”. It’d be more fitting that the current user name that you’ve used.
PS home is not that bad guys
But I dont know if internet will ever be fast enough for it to not take a year for it to load…
I tried to love it, but it keeps kicking me in the face when I smile…
Still aint gettin a wiiu till my ps3 begs for a buddy…. (that sounds akwaRd)
Oh no you di-int!
I don’t care to use part of my full name on the net, mainly because what are they gonna do with it? There’s many more Tyrell Jones’s out there. And Ik it was your opinion, but it was ignorant of you to come on a nintendo blog to voice your opinion about another feature from a different company being better than this one.
Cross you? lmao what are you gonna do? Go into CAPS LOCK RAGE?
I really want this on my Wii U but on my 3DS too please make it happen soon Nintendo!!!
Day one on Wii U with Wireless Update.
This year on our 3DS, I hope same day.
I can’t wait to get Hulu Plus & YouTube & HBO GO & MAX GO on my Nintendo 3DS.
GO TEAM VENTURE!
Why are people so misinformed about the 3DS when it comes to Miiverse. ALL the 3DS will get is the news feed app with connectivity to Wii U in some form – so basically what will be on PC’s or phones but with direct connection in some ways. It won’t be Mii’s circling around icons or any of that, or pop-ups in games with people’s writing.
I think… You’ll be able to make a Nintendo Network ID and then get the Miiverse app from the 3DS eShop. Then I think you can (basically) do what you do on the Wii U version, except you can’t switch directly to it in a game you are currently. Unless, Nintendo might add a Miiverse app to the home menu, along with the Web Browser, Notifications, Friend List and Game Notes. Anyone Agree??
I dont think I even care for miiverse….
But it makes others happy, so im happy.
Plus I just want more free content on my 3DS. Gotta boost my ROI (Return on investment)
I wish we were getting English videos like this from NoA, I mean here we are like a week from launch basically with all this info being released, but in Japanese. Would love to know what they’re saying so I get a better idea of what’s going on, but hey figuring stuff out yourself with a brand new console is fun too!
America, please stop complaining, you only have another 8 days to wait, we have 20 yours sincerely Europe
I don’t know Japanese, but how could he type on a english keyboard? Does he type English and translates that to Japanese, or does he type a Japanese with the English Letters on it?
he writes syllables and they’re inmediatly translated to japanese.
Well, that’s pretty nifty.
I hope they call the trophies for the Wii U medals. I like that better than “Achievements”
They are supposed to be called accomplishments
I have no idea why, but I want to nickname this kid “Tomi.” I just do.
I’ve been waiting for to hear and see what the start up music and screen would look like and im pleased idk its just the small things of something big that make me exicted
Looks cool. Funny that his keyboard is in english tho.
