We look forward to your drawings Miyamoto-san!

Satoru Iwata took to Miiverse for the very first time earlier on to reconfirm that the update Wii U users will receive in April will reduce the time it takes to launch and exit software.

Not to be outdone, Shigeru Miyamoto has now made his Miiverse debut by submitting a post to celebrate the Year of Luigi.

Here's what the great man had to say:

It's been a whole 30 years since Luigi's debut in Mario Bros.!

Thanks to Luigi's fans within Nintendo and all over the world, we have created many games starring Luigi.

I hereby declare 2013 to be the Year of Luigi!

Miiverse is certainly gaining some momentum. First Nintendo releases details on smartphone and PC integration and then Iwata and Miyamoto make their debuts on the social network - if Reggie Fils-Aime hasn't posted by tomorrow morning we'll be very disappointed.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon is now available in North America and Europe, so everyone can now celebrate the Year of Luigi in style.

How are you celebrating Luigi's 30th anniversary? Let us know in the comments section below.
