Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto has stated that he wants Mii characters to become the global standard for avatar creation and find their way into everything like some terrible, adorable disease. 

“Simply put, I want to spread Mii characters all around the world,” said the impish developer. “Exchanging it with people close to you is a given. Whether you use StreetPass or through the network, I want to implement Mii characters in all sorts of ways. Ultimately, I want Mii characters to be the world standard for avatars.

“I hope that in the future, when you have to go to the city hall for some formality, they’ll ask you to submit your Mii character too [laughs]. If it becomes a worldwide format, it’ll be fun. Purely and simply, I just want everyone to use it in a variety of ways. Well, that ambition about the city hall thing might be a bit extreme, but I do want Mii to be more widely used."

The 3DS launched in Japan this week, and it sold out almost immediately. Shigeru's dream of a totalitarian dictatorship ruled by big-headed Jesuses and Hitlers seems to be headed towards reality. We will get to add our support for the new regime on March 27 in North America and March 25 in Europe.

Review: Shantae and the Pirate's Curse

I've always thought that Shantae is a bit of an underrated series. While WayForward can be hit or miss these days, I can always rely on their ability to craft a good platformer. Shantae: Risky's Revenge for the DSi ...more
