The latest Iwata Asks reveals that gamers will be able to take a screenshot within a game and post the aforementioned screenshot to Miiverse. To do this you’ll need to press the Home button when you find a cool spot in the game and then select Miiverse and post the screen that has been saved to show off to your friends.

Kurisu: I want people to try Miiverse just by itself, and also try posting to Miiverse from games. If you spot a cool scene, you can post a screenshot by pressing the HOME Button. I truly hope people will actively participate in the communities tied to particular games.

Iwata: After you press the HOME Button, you can go from the HOME Button Menu to Miiverse. The game screen that was displayed at the time will be saved as a screenshot that you can post, right?

Kurisu: Yes. There’s a spoiler button, too. We’ve designed it so that people who don’t want to see spoilers won’t have to.

Iwata: There’s also a way to report something that you feel is a spoiler so it should be hidden.

Kurisu: Yeah. I hope people will make use of such features and enjoy aspects of Miiverse that connect to the games.



  1. That’s awesome! Maybe we can also record gameplay without the need of a capture card (but I doubt it)…but maybe we can record what’s on the Wii U Gamepad when we have our secondary screen up instead of the TV). But yeah, as Carlos said, if I can’t upload it to my computer, what’s the point?


  2. see this is what makes me think that the reason theres no party chat is because there really pushing this miiverse feature and they think people wont use miiverse as much if theres party chat i think what they will do is you miiverse and when that beening use a lot then there add party chat


  3. I wish they had options like this back in the Super NES days. I still remember trying to take a picture of the tv screen to prove I completed the entire Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels without warping. I won a sew-on patch for that from Nintendo Power. Still have it. The good ol’ days of Nintendo Power. Can’t believe it’s going extinct after the December issue. : (


  4. In regards to the Pikachu 3DS XL, I live in Europe and feel that; while Europe is getting the Pikachu 3DS, that America will get the recently Announced Charizard one.

    Just sayin’.


  5. This is pretty cool, usually use a camera for stuff like that and the pics come out too blurry. Hope you can use an SD card to upload them to your pc to add a caption, you know to say something funny.


  6. Lol perfect. In a way it allows for bragging rights among other fellow gamers. Miiverse littered with screenshots from gamers trying to top one another, i can already seein it happenin


  7. Hey Hey! Ain’t that some shit? Everyday I get even more excited for Wii U, hopefully third-party developers won’t opt-out of the Wii U when Microsoft and Sony release their new consoles. Though, Nintendo has always been the top contender in marketing.


  8. During the Pre-E3 Nintendo Direct, Iwata said you can create content that can be added to others game experience. Any word on that feature? Leave luck to heaven.


  9. defenetly mariokart DS,the new surmreapio bros.,or if u like shooting games,call of duty 5 for dsthese are all the games that i think are the best for ds but if u dont like those just go to the game store and ask one of the people that work there what are some good games that are on sale and they will help you find the game perfect for you
