Update: Now live on Android.

The latest version of Miitomo is starting to go live. Version 1.3.0 is out now on iOS, and should be available on Android shortly.

Today’s update brings along a number of features. Here’s what’s included:

– Added options to share images and answers (via WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger)
– A conversation menu will now be displayed when talking to a Mii
– A question of the day will now be displayed in the recent activity tab
– Daily bonus progress can now be checked at any time
– Implemented bug fixes and speed optimizations

Update: Another new feature will be Star Accounts – these are “notable” Miis that will visit you and allow you to hear (and star) their answers. These will presumably be Nintendo developers, celebrities and the like. However, this feature will only be available if your phone’s location is set to Japan. It is not known at the moment if this feature will be added to other regions as well at a later point.


This coming week, Miitomo should have a new update. Nintendo provided a preview about what it has in store today.

Users can look forward to the following:

– Share recent news at any time when you talk with your own Mii character
– Tap links in answers and comments to open them in a browser
– The cap on popularity level and style level will be raised to 30
– More options for sharing or sending invitations
– Mexico, Switzerland, and South Africa will be available as country setting options
– Additional optimizations and bug fixes are also planned

Miitomo will be distributed in Mexico, Switzerland, and South Africa starting on June 30. Expect the update to drop around then.

Aside from the update news, new items are out now in Miitomo. Here’s the full lineup:

– Nautical bucket hat
– Polo shirt w/ emblem
– Denim shorts
– Ribbed lace knee-highs
– Leather crisscross sandals
– Shooting star pin
– Cow hood
– Cow suit


Minecraft’s new Battle Mini Game debuted earlier this week, but not without some issues. Players across all platforms have been experiencing problems, including Wii U owners.

Thankfully, there is some good news to report. A new patch has now started going out, which should fix issues when attempting to join public matches. Be on the lookout for it!

Star Fox Guard’s latest update is now available. Nintendo has brought the game up to version 20160622.

As for what the patch entails, adjustments have been made to rank-calculation. Values have been adjusted for “all maps and all squad sizes”.


Mighty No. 9 finally launched today, but things haven’t exactly been going smoothly. On Wii U, some players have been reporting various issues. Perhaps most concerning is that the game is apparently bricking some consoles.

Publisher Deep Silver appears to be aware of at least some of the issues facing Mighty No. 9, and thankfully, a patch is already being deployed. We’re hearing that it’s already out in Europe, with North America to follow by day’s end.

An official statement from Deep Silver reads:

“We’re aware of some isolated incidents of consumers experiencing issues on Wii U, and they’re actually being addressed in a patch that’s deploying out on Wii U systems today. The patch is already live in Europe, and should be hitting U.S. before the end of the day.”


Minecraft: Wii U Edition’s Battle Mini Game is out now. On top of that, a new update has been made available. The full patch notes can be found below.

As a side note, players should be aware of some issues surrounding the new Battle Mini Game – specifically joining public Battle Mini Games. 4J Studios put up a note on Twitter earlier today saying they’re working with Nintendo on the problem.

HullBreach Studios has pinned down a release date for SDK Paint version 4. The new update is currently scheduled for June 23.

The upcoming update will bring about a host of new features. HullBeach covers it all in the official Miiverse post below.


Pokken Tournament received a new update last night, bringing the game up to version 1.3. Some people have since been poking through the files to see if there’s anything interesting hidden away.

Reddit user BananaMuffinFrenzy did manage to come across some potentially interesting things. First, the inclusion of a “evt_sphit_Scizor” file was found. There were also a few other noteworthy files:


Empoleon is 395 in the Pokedex, and ”Iwakudaki” is Rock Smash. Darkrai is 491 in the Pokedex, and can use Dark Pulse and Dark Void (Dark Hole in Japanese).

These findings have people speculating about Scizor, Empoleon, and Darkrai being added to Pokken Tournament. It remains to be seen what will actually happen in the future, however.
