Miyamoto, Iwata debut on Nintendo’s Miiverse

Miiverse on has so far been a way for Wii U users (Wii Users?) to discuss the games that they are playing, among other things. Now, it looks like the scope of Miiverse is expanding, as both Nintendo president Satoru Iwata and legendary game producer Shigeru Miyamoto have debuted on the network in the past week.

On Wednesday, Iwata posted his first Miiverse message to discuss in further detail the Wii U system update that has been scheduled for this spring. The update will take place in April and will improve the time it takes for the Wii U to launch software. The time it takes for players to return to the Wii U menu will also be shortened.

On Friday, Miyamoto announced in his first Miiverse message that 2013 is the Year of Luigi. With Miiverse soon to debut on platforms such as PC and smartphones, it seems like the perfect time for Iwata and Miyamoto to announce their presences on the network. Miiverse should be a great way in the future for the two Nintendo bigwigs to communicate directly with their passionate fan base.
