Nintendo America Explains Wii U’s Nintendo Network, Miiverse And Internet Browser In This New Video

Nintendo of America’s Bill Trinen talks about many essential Wii U features, including the Nintendo Network, Miiverse and Internet Browser, in the video above.

Miiverse is a network where players can share their feelings with others; for example, if you are struggling on a particular level within a game, let other Wii U users know how you feel so that they’ll attempt to help you. Defeat a challenging, ruthless boss, and let other players know of your triumph so that they’ll congratulate you.

To access the Nintendo eShop for Wii U, Miiverse, Nintendo TVii and Wii U Chat, you must have a Nintendo Network ID. To register for a Nintendo Network ID, a player must enter a password, birth date, gender, location and e-mail address.
