The Miiverse is about to get connected with four major social media networks for extended sharing.
Today, Nintendo announced that the browser version of Miiverse will now allow for Facebook, Twitter, Goggle+, and Tumblr sharing for posts. The new functionality is only currently available for the browser version of Miiverse, but Nintendo adds that the option will makes its way to the Wii U soon. In addition, photo sharing is now available for the Wii U version of Miiverse.
Will you be sharing your Miiverse drawings and posts through these social media networks, or will you keep all the fun and creativity through Nintendo’s patented social network?
Nintendo of America has announced via their Twitter account that they will be hosting a new E3-centric Nintendo Direct on June 11th. The presentation will commence at 10 AM Eastern and will be available for streaming through Nintendo’s website. Nintendo has previously confirmed that the next iterations in the Mario Kart, Mario 3D, and Smash Bros. franchises will be present in some form during their next Nintendo Direct; however, other announced Wii U and 3DS titles are still under speculation. Will Retro Studios’ long-awaited new project be unveiled, or will a new partnership with a some other third party publisher be announced? These are all questions that will soon be answered at this next Nintendo Direct or, hopefully, at a later event during the week of E3 2013.

Twitter seems to be the source of many controversies lately, and Nintendo is not exempt. Someone using Nintendo of Korea’s Twitter account (it is unknown if the account was hacked, or if it was internal) posted the following in reference to Eun Ji Park and her boyfriend. Eun Ji Park was once a weather forecaster, and is now a popular TV personality:
“She should have just stayed as a TV Meteorologist. Getting all the work done on her face like that. How come a brainless bitch like you gets the entire spotlight? Who is your sponsor? TV…sigh…”
I should point out that “sponsor”, in Korea, basically means “sugar daddy” and is synonymous for exchanging sexual favors for achieving celebrity status. The article that prompted the tweet can be found HERE, however my Korean is a bit rusty.
Nintendo of Korea has claimed that the tweet did not originate from an employee, which could hint at a compromised account. However, some of the Nintendo of Korea followers believe that the person who runs the Twitter account might have confused the Nintendo account with their own. Nintendo responded with the following:
We’ve determined no employee has posted such comment on our Twitter account,” Nintendo of Koreatold Naver. “We’d like to know how this ended up on our Twitter. This matter is frustrating.”
The tweet has since been deleted.
Positive or Negative, publicity is publicity. Do you think that the tweet will harm Nintendo of Korea’s reputation, or will it be forgotten by the end of the week?
