Miiverse was unveiled at E3 2012 but this week, Nintendo chose to talk about their social network for gamers in more depth, first during a Nintendo Direct broadcast and then in a new Iwata Asks discussion. It got us more excited about Wii U than ever.
For this could be the biggest thing in Nintendo gaming since the Wii Remote. The ability to communicate with a number of followers or friends during a game is fantastic and we love the idea of people being able to help each other out as they attempt to beat a tricky boss.
Anyway, here are four new things we learned from the latest Iwata Asks.
1. There is a spoiler button
The theory behind Miiverse is great. As revealed in the first ever Miiverse video, you can send a message to Miiverse to get help if you are stuck in a game. In the video, our man was attempting to defeat a zombie boss but when he got stuck and non-specific action figure couldn't help, he turned to Miiverse. Help came from a Grandad going by the name of OctoG123.
But many people wanted to know if Miiverse would spoil their games. After all, if anyone can see messages like these, wouldn't they find out more than they wanted to know about games they had yet to play?
The answer is no. You see, Miiverse has a spoiler button. Yoshiomi Kurisu from Hatena (the company who developed Miiverse) reassured gamers, saying: "There's a spoiler button, too. We've designed it so that people who don't want to see spoilers won't have to."
Iwata added: "There's also a way to report something that you feel is a spoiler so it should be hidden."
