Miiverse

Miiverse has received another update today. While there isn’t anything too substantional, Nintendo has made a couple of changes that should improve your experience.

First, all versions of Miiverse now let you write posts and comments on multiple lines. The Wii U and 3DS versions of the social network now also let you show up to three of your favorite game genres in your profile.

You can find the full overview of today’s update from Miiverse’s Marty below.

Another update was applied to Miiverse today, which brings about a few changes/additions.

First, the amount of Yeahs have been reduced in the activity feed. You’ll also now see the full post for each Yeah as opposed to just a few words. Also for “Yeahs”, you can prevent them from appearing in the activity feed by applying an option in the Miiverse Settings.

Miiverse now allows users to embed posts as well. Click on “Embed this post” on the web version of Miiverse, and you’ll then be presented with HTML code to add it to a web page.

Last but not least, the web version’s User Page has been updated so that it matches the Wii U and 3DS versions, and includes your favorite handwritten post.

Along with today’s screenshot, Sakurai passed along the following message on Miiverse:

Here’s Donkey Kong’s third standard special attack, Storm Punch!! Thanks to the customization options, each fighter is stocked with 12 different special moves. The number of attacks is pretty appalling.

We’ve made it so that customization options, including special attacks, will be disabled when you’re playing online in With Anyone mode. After all, we have to think about game balance, and it’s crucial for anonymous players to be able to use reliable tactics against one another. When you’re playing in single player, battling with friends online, or playing locally, you’re free to play however you want–with or without customization.

Yesterday, we posted a Miiverse message from Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma, who spoke briefly about the upcoming entry in the series for Wii U. Strangely, the original Japanese note included an extra tidbit not included in the English translation.

Aonuma mentioned in his original post that he wants to let other people play Zelda Wii U – such as a demo on the show floor – at E3 2015. With Nintendo targeting a launch next year, that does make sense! It just means we’ll be seeing it later in 2015, which most probably expected.

Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma posted a message on Miiverse today, briefly touching on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U and Hyrule Warriors. In his message, Aonuma reconfirmed that yesterday’s video was comprised of “actual gameplay on Wii U.” You can find the full Miiverse post below.

Update: The thread has now been removed, but the evidence sadly remains.


This is about as bizarre as it gets. Oxygene Media, who may now be most well-known for astroturfing on Miiverse, has slammed the developer of I’ve Got to Run! over a review.

Syrenne McNulty reviewed one of Oxygene Media’s latest games, Fit Music for Wii U, as she is both a developer and journalist. Oxygene wasn’t pleased with the verdict, and after learning that McNulty is the creator of I’ve Got to Run!, posted the above message on Miiverse.

Things didn’t end there though. Oxygene continued its posts, and McNulty also stepped in briefly to mention that the company isn’t being professional:

Definitely sad to see something like this. Can’t we all get along?!

Today’s new screenshot of Super Smash Bros. has revealed a brand new stage. The stage is Fire Emblem themed and is shown off by Ike and Marth. Here is what Sakurai had to say about it on Miiverse along with a second screenshot:

We’ve added a familiar setting from the Fire Emblem series, the Coliseum. In the original game, this place is filled with both hope and despair. There is machinery in the ground that activates variable platforms.

Along with today’s screenshot, Sakurai passed along the following message on Miiverse:

Brewster brings The Roost back to Smash Bros. Nothing beats watching a battle of famous fighters with a freshly brewed cup of coffee.

Nintendo has opened an official community for its E3 2014 activities. You can find it here. There are already plenty of posts inside – feel free to add yours!

You can find a message from Nintendo’s Tom about the E3 community below. Additionally, hit up this link for the announcement community, which is only open to posts from the Big N.

A new Miiverse update has gone live for all versions of the social network.

Today’s update brings about four notable changes. The amount of time you need to wait between posting comments has been reduced from 3 minutes to 2 minutes, the character count for posts and comments has been increased to 400, the notifications screen will now display up to 50 notifications, and Your Activity Feed now shows posts that your friends or people you’re following have given a Yeah to.
