Nintendo Network: Reach Out And Hug Someone
Rest in peace, Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
If you pick up a copy of Theatrhythm Final Fantasy in Japan, or just take the couple seconds to gleam the box art, you'll notice that Nintendo has some new service called the Nintendo Network.
Apparently, this replaces the old Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, and covers all of the publisher's online services, possibly even extending to its upcoming Wii U console, slated to arrive later this year.
Beyond that, we have no idea how the Nintendo Network will evolve, or whether it'll connect 3DS with Wii U, but don't worry. We only have eleven months of 2012 remaining.
