Nintendo of America has announced, via Twitter, that Shigeru Miyamoto made his Miiverse debut. On his first Miiverse post, the Nintendo designer and producer declared 2013 to be the Year of Luigi. Miyamoto isn’t the only big shot who’s recently joined Nintendo’s social network, as, a couple days ago, company president Satoru Iwata posted his first message on Miiverse. While it is only accessible on Wii U, Miiverse will eventually arrive on other platforms, including smartphones, PC and Nintendo 3DS.
Here’s what Miyamoto said in his first Miiverse post:
It’s been a whole 30 years since Luigi’s debut in Mario Bros.!
Thanks to Luigi’s fans within Nintendo and all over the world, we have created many games starring Luigi.
I hereby declare 2013 to be the Year of Luigi!
