According to a picture of the game taken from a Nintendo event anyway.  It shows not only everyone we’ve seen in the trailers so far (which adds up to 27 characters), but also has empty slots just waiting for another 3 characters to fill them.  But what does the screen look?  Who do I suspect is going to fill those last few slots?  Read on and find out!

Should Nintendo replace Miiverse with a Forum API system?

Because as we’ve seen in my article yesterday, Miiverse as a concept just does not work.  A single giant ‘community’ (in the loosest sense of the term) made up entirely of ignorant people making insane suggestions and potentially damaging comments?  Yeah, that was a disaster just waiting to happen! So instead of that, how about this alternative?  How about instead of Nintendo trying to replace fan run forums with some mediocre official social network knock off, they actually work WITH the community and highlight the interesting discussions made on these unofficial sites?

Because despite the general push for Miiverse support across the board in Wii U games, the service really does have most of the same ‘issues’ that SwapNote’s SwapPass functionality had.  Ones like trolls, idiots, potentially illegal or risky content and various other things that Nintendo really didn’t like finding out about back when the SwapNote scandal broke out. So if you want to know more about the kind of insanity that could get Miiverse wiped off the map, keep reading!

So for those European Nintendo fans out there who want to hear the game’s music in some ‘official’ way, there you go.  You can find Nintendo’s Tweet on the matter in the full post after the break. My opinion though?  Don’t really see much point in getting this CD.  Not only do I not plan to buy a Wii U (and this game, among others) until Smash Bros comes out, but the entire soundtrack can be gotten far conveniently with this magical thing called the ‘internet’ and ‘Youtube’. But if you want to see what Nintendo has to say on the matter (officially) or to see it on the Club Nintendo store, keep reading!
