    Nintendo Is Working On A Mobile App For Its Miiverse Social Network

    Nintendo is no stranger to gaming on the go (I’ve been clinging to Nintendo handhelds for as long as I’ve been able to walk) but president Satoru Iwata just let slip some unexpected information about the company’s next mobile foray during a live Nintendo Direct address.
