Even though we’re just a few weeks away from the Wii U’s launch, little is known about the system’s online infrastructure and flagship user interface, Miiverse. Thankfully, we at least know that it won’t be quite as bad as the Wii’s pathetic service, thanks to a few details revealed by the company in an investor’s meeting.
First of all, it seems that we’ll be able to friend random strangers, which is a great step forward from Nintendo’s assumption that everyone on the internet is a child molester. When you interact with others on the Miiverse, you’ll be able to decide if you want to friend them or not. This, of course, also means those disgustingly cumbersome Friend Codes are now done for, as well.
More information will be shared soon in a Nintendo Direct presentation, meaning we won’t be waiting until launch to be find out exactly what the Wii U is packing in regards to online gaming. Of course, that’s no guarantee we won’t be disappointed, but we’ll know soon enough!
