    Revealed during a Nintendo investor's meeting

    During its third quarter financial results meeting, Nintendo confirms that Nintendo Network is on the way. Also we will get a new 2D Mario game for 3DS by next year

    Nintendo has finally confirmed its online service called Nintendo Network during an investor program today. Satoru Iwata confirmed the online infrastructure is already in place for the service.

    They have the following plans:
    • Personal Accounts for Wii U. Allowing now personalized accounts for its next home console. They will allow multiple accounts per console. "We will also be able to construct and offer the [personal account system] by combining a variety of different services and content," Iwata said. So, no more system based online profiles.
    • Digitally Distributed Packaged Software. They are exploring the idea to release full retail titles on both the 3DS and Wii U.
    • Paid Downloadable Content. We already knew this. The first game to offer paid DLC it will be Square's Theatrhythm Final Fantasy.
    In addition to the above, Iwata also said they are already working on a Mario 2D title for 3DS, expected to be launched next year (2013).

    Pretty interesting news. Expect to see more at this year E3 in June, and who knows, perhaps even before!

      Shouldn't be too hard for them, all they have to do is not make the same mistakes everyone else made. Add some cool features that maybe the other's don't have and its done.

      They better do it right though, everyone already has high expectations...
