Wii U's Miiverse Is Similar to a Social Network

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata explained that there were two reasons they decided to implement Miiverse, which will be available for free, for the Wii U, computers, phones, and later 3DS.

Second, it would allow players to connect to each other even if they are not playing a multi-player game. By knowing that there are other players around, Iwata hoped that it would cause a feeling of empathy.
