    Rumour: Nintendo Network in the Works


    A never before seen icon has appeared on the box-art of Theatrythm: Final Fantasy. Clearly written in the upper right-hand corner is a logo with the words “Nintendo Network”. On the back of the box it says that the game will offer DLC, which apparently will be one of the functions of the new network. According to reports around the industry, the Nintendo Network will be the new network on the 3DS and the Wii U, somehow integrating and connecting the two systems. Screenshots show that already in some places around the world, Mario Kart 7 is running on this new network. So, apparently, multiplayer online gaming is confirmed as a part of the network, not just DLC. What new features will Nintendo Network offer and how will it unify the Wii U and 3DS? All this may be announced at the conference scheduled for January 26th. Next week. Last year, Nintendo announced new details about the 3DS at the very same conference, so we can expect some new details to be revealed again this year.

    A source that wished to remain anonymous has told us that Nintendo will launch a website accessible from any web browser that will handle configuration of your Nintendo Network account for use on the Wii U or 3DS. He also stated that Nintendo Network will include many new features that haven’t been used before by Nintendo. According to his accounts: Nintendo Network = Sony PSN = Xbox Live.


    What To Believe: The screenshots are undeniable and Nintendo has been making progress in catching up to the rest of the industry with their online framework. It makes sense that they will allow gamers to create one central identity for use on both the 3DS and Wii U. Expect more details at the conference and I’d even wager to say some Wii U news will be hinted at. (Don’t expect anything too exciting. Most of the surprises will be saved for E3. But Nintendo may whet our appetites with a small entree to go with E3′s main course.)

    Let's hope its free, if its not, they wont get any subscriptions. Who would pay to play Mario or Kirby online? BS!

    If they make this paid, I can guarantee that most nintendo fans will move over to other consoles lol.

    After all, the PS3 will then be the only console with free online...
