At tonight's evening hardware presentation, Wii U hardware producer Katsuya Eguchi revealed some anti-spoiler tech that will be put in Nintendo's Miiverse chat service and how it might help block spoilers in Nintendo Land

Miiverse provides the opportunity to make friends in the park in Nintendo Land, and then converse with them to learn game tactics and share. But someone always messes that up, so two systems have been put in place to at least cut back on spoilers.

First, players can mark tips left for others as potential spoilers, much like you would on an internet message board. Beyond that, users can mark other tips for review, which will have Nintendo swooping in to save the day. Again, just like a message board. This will make it easy to find people you'd like to learn from and trust.

Nintendo will also work to moderate other potential offenses on Miiverse, such as bad language or threats.  "We want Miiverse to be a place where people will not feel threatened or uncomfortable with other content," Eguchi says. "Nintendo will be aggressively perusing this."

And speaking of message boards, Eguchi got this jab in: "I hate when people go on message boards and complain about games they haven't played."
