In a recent interview, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata dove into some interesting topics, most notably the Miiverse and how it came about. Iwata also reiterates that the Wii U GamePad can transcend just a gaming audience with multimedia.

Although the history of the Miiverse has been touched on before, he also reminds us that a 3DS Miiverse is coming:

Once the Miiverse hits the 3DS, it will be huge. Just imagine the possibilities of playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf while sharing your experiences on the Miiverse. Now that’s something!

In some ways it's easy to get snarky about how Nintendo is finally catching up with the rest of the industry from a technological infrastructure standpoint: but mostly, it's just nice to see Nintendo actually heading forward and trying new things.

The 3DS already has a ton of software and a booming eShop -- with the Miiverse to augment that, it will become an unstoppable portable force. If you're interested in the Miiverse in general, it's worth checking out the transcribed interview at Siliconera.
