Nintendo believes Wii U, its upcoming console set for release later this year, will take social gaming to all-new levels for a Nintendo console.

Ex-Nintendo UK employee David Yarton spoke recently about the console's social aspects, stating that the tablet controller's screen "can bring someone in, get them involved, but give them either a very different or subtly different experience".

Mr Yarton also believed that, while Wii's social gaming experience was something new from Nintendo, Wii U's offering will expand greatly on its predecessor's achievements.

With Wii U we are still looking at the social aspect of gaming," explained Mr Yarton. "Wii games got the family playing, and got people that didn’t usually play up and having a go. Wii U takes that further."

In multiplayer scenario's, Mr Yarton explained, gamers will be able to "see it when people play", and that's "the real pleasure" of the console's social experience.

I like what we have seen of Miiverse so far. I'm hoping there are filter options tho. I don't want a bunch of stranger Mii's filling up my home screen.
