The Dude Who Says He Tagged Nintendo Brass

While at E3 waiting to play the new Nintendo Wii U, reader Dustin and his buddy killed time with their Nintendo 3DS handhelds. Then a nice fellow from Nintendo asked them if they wanted to fill their Pokédex with more Pocket Monsters.

"The gentleman from Nintendo opens his 3DS and replied, 'Hey I just tagged Miyamoto,'" wrote Dustin. "Me and my friend were in shock. The very thought that we could possibly tag Miyamoto's 3DS was mind blowing to us."

Dustin's friend opened his 3DS to see he had tagged Nintendo execs Satoru Iwata and Reggie Fils-Aime. Dustin hadn't tagged anyone, so he hung out in the 3DS section all day, trying to tag them. He was able to get Iwata, Reggie and somebody from Nintendo named "Miah". His 3DS ran out of batteries before he could get Miyamoto—cursed 3DS battery life!

"The gentleman from Nintendo informed us that the only way to know that these Mii's are legit and are not fakes is that they wear gold pants and you cannot create a QR code for them," wrote Dustin. "Meaning you cannot share these Mii's with other people. You can give them to somebody else, but then you would lose them from your plaza."

[Thanks Dustin!]

I know I'm going to probably embarass myself with this...but this reminds me of going to DisneyWorld as a kid and trying to collect autographs from the various characters that were walking about.

Yes, they were actos in costumes...but it was still fun to do. And the one that EVERYBODY was hunting for (Mickey) was the most elusive to get.

I see this as the same thing, except it's more exciting because the thought of bumping DS's w/ the guy who pretty much invented it is pretty badass!

I've always wondered what Miyamoto's DS/Wii friends list looks like.
