Snapchat Nintendo

Even after the launch of its very own service – Miiverse – for Wii U & 3DS, Nintendo is still warming to the concept of social media at a rather slow pace.

Facebook and Twitter have proven the house of Mario is to some extent willing to connect with its fan base while at the same time provide updates, announcements and information about the latest happenings.

With these two social media platforms developing into an important aspect of the company's marketing and advertising phases over the past couple of years, Nintendo is now looking to broaden its connections with the assistance of the video messaging and live streaming services, Snapchat and Periscope.

Nintendo’s Snapchat is already filled with humour while its Periscope page will be used to keep fans up to date with next month’s E3. Take a look at the Twitter announcements below:
