Nintendo Network logo

Nintendo Network official logo. This logo can be seen on nearly any game that is compatible with it.

Nintendo Network is the successor of Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, in the sense that both are online-based. Nintendo Network is for the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U. The main features which will be added are personal accounts for the Wii U, digitally distributed packaged software, and paid downloadable content.
