SAN FRANCISCO--At the Nintendo keynote address delivered by the company's creative guru, Shigeru Miyamoto, the Mario creator spent much of his talk lecturing game developers about the creative process.
However, amid tales of getting his wife to play Wii Sports and focusing on entertaining not only players but also those around them, there was one nugget of new information.
Miyamoto divulged that he was working on a new Wii Channel for Miis. Whereas the current Mii Channel focuses on the creation of the cartoonish avatars and occasionally swapping them with friends, the new Mii-centered channel will sport a so-called "popularity contest," where users from all over the planet can showcase their Miis across the Internet.
Miyamoto did not mention a name or release date for the new channel.
