Twitter user @joshua_x has Tweeted the official box-art for TheAtRhythm: Final Fantasy which has a Nintendo Network logo clearly shown in the top right hand corner. Nintendo Network is likely to be a unified service to connect both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS online, much like Sony’s PSN and Microsoft’s Xbox Live. Maybe we will hear more about Nintendo Network at the Japanese investor conference next week?

  1. Whenever you connect to Mario Kart 7 online, it says “Connecting to Nintendo Network”. Looks awesome though. The colour matches the eShop!

  2. Hmmm, interesting.

    But when next week is the conference? I’d expect Wii U details then since isn’t that where the 3DS was first confirmed?

  6. Cant wait for them to announce the servers are all in Japan. So have fun with 3-5 second lag.

    They need regional servers or they could go with the standby P2P. Either way it will be expensive, or crappy.

  7. PSN sounds better than NN… or XBLA, for that matter. I think a better acronym would the the NTN, which in my opinion is much catchier. NN just leaves you with shortness of breath.

    Oh, and it better have a unified profile system or else it’s a pretty useless (and I mean that literally; then it’s just a change in name, no actual change in the system and usage).

  8. Sounds interesting, it’d be nice if they offered a trophy/achievement system like XBL and PSN do. They really should get their internet up to the same standards as the other consoles and handhelds. PSN uses the same account on PS3, PSP and PSVita, Nintendo should do something similar so that you can link your 3DS and Wii U and earn achievements of sorts.

    But I’ll just keep my hopes low, cos I doubt Nintendo will commit to making an online network like XBL and PSN, though I’d love it if they would.

  9. Now we’re getting something.

    Notice that the logo for N2 (Nintendo Network) looks like a house (home) transmitting a signal to the world. At the same time, it looks like a bridge, so maybe they’ll have crossplatform connections between the 3DS and Wii U and maybe other devices.

  10. I just realized something.
    Nintendo Network.
    Playsation Network (PSN).
    C’mon, Nintendo. It sounded pretty cool until I realized that XD

  11. Sounds promising but I hope there isn’t a huge price tag attatched. The reason being so that it can compete with PSN more because Xbox Live would be too hard to catch up to IMO.
