The social network will be more deeply integrated with games. Nintendo is planning updates to Miiverse functionality, including the ability to more deeply integrate the social network with Wii U games. Nintendo is also listening to developer requests on how they might extend the Miiverse API to include more benefits.

  • Players will be able to send and receive comments in-game.
  • Players will be able to see Yeahs in-game.
  • They can follow users, and see who users are following in-game.
  • Users will be able to launch games from Miiverse Posts.
  • Launch buttons on Miiverse posts can contain program arguments, so it will be possible to boot directly to a certain level or menu in a game.
  • Can work with online datastore for additional functionality.
  • Mizuki sees the potential application of level editing and sharing via Miiverse.
  • User Sub-Communities (like Mario Kart 7′s) are coming to Miiverse.
  • Can be used to organise and hold tournaments.
  • First game to use them is Wii Fit U.
  • Nintendo is canvassing developers for anything else theyd like to see in the API.
