Miiverse

Nintendo has updated Miiverse once again. It’s a bit on the small side though, and it only applies to 3DS.

Following today’s update, users will now find that 10 posts are shown in your Play Journal and 15 posts on other areas. Prior to this, 20 posts were displayed across the social network. Nintendo has also improved Miiverse so that error messages are less likely to be encountered.

The second part of The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes’ Miiverse Miiting has gone live. Director Hiromasa Shikata once again participated in the discussion, but he was also joined by Grezzo’s Mikiharu Oiwa this time around as well.

The new Miiverse Miiting is quite a bit more interesting than the last one. There are comments about the working relationship between Nintendo and Grezzo, concept art for Princess Styla, cut outfit ideas, an abandoned idea for an icon seller that would let you buy extra icons with Rupees, and more. Head past the break for the full talk.

Nintendo has applied another update to Miiverse. This time around, the additions pertain to screenshots.

Nintendo has made a couple of changes. First up, users can now attach screenshots from their Screenshot Album to both posts and comments in the Discussions section. Additionally, it’s now possible to post saved screenshots as comments in the In-Game Posts section.

Here’s the notice from Nintendo’s Erika:

Most 3DS games these allow players to share screenshots with others on Miiverse. The newly-released Yo-kai Watch, however, does not. We’re not sure what the exact reasoning behind this. It is what it is!

Yesterday, Zelda: Tri Force Heroes director Hiromasa Shikata stopped by Miiverse to chat a bit about the new 3DS game. While he didn’t reveal anything overly major, he did comment on the doppels, multiplayer, and more.

Head past the break to read the Miiting in full. It sounds like we’ll also be getting part 2 at some point in the future.

With the launch of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes in the west, series producer Eiji Aonuma and Shikata took to Miiverse and talked a bit more about the game.

First, here’s some opening comments from Aonuma:


We next have comments from Shikata, who explains why the game features three players instead of four:

A couple of months ago, Nintendo had made the announcement that it would be updating Miiverse with a new look and brand new features to make it feel more sociable and really have a focus on user-created content across 3DS and Wii U. We saw new additions such as the ability to create Play Journals, the ability to create little notes and screenshots based on your experiences and talk a bit about them, Screenshot Albums, a great way to sort and organize photos you’ve taken in games you post to Miiverse, and tons more. The website got some added features also, but it looked fairly the same. Today, suddenly, Miiverse gets a huge overhaul, and it’s gorgeous.

Head on over to Miiverse on the web to check out the brand new layout for yourself!

What do you think about the brand new look? Is it to your liking? Let us know in the comments below!

Nintendo applied a new update to Miiverse yesterday that affects all versions of the social network.

On Wii U and 3DS, it’s now possible to post screenshots saved to the Screenshot Album in Drawings. Users could only previously share images to the Play Journal.

For all versions of Miiverse, Nintendo has added in an option to filter Open Discussions in the New Discussions area.

Here’s the update news from Miiverse’s “Tom”:

Thanks to Shinun for the tip.

Update: Here’s the official announcement:

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Notice something different about Miiverse today? That’s because the free family-friendly service that lets players communicate with other Nintendo players around the world just got a redesign. The makeover is not only visual – the update comes with new features that make sharing tips, drawings and comments about Wii U or Nintendo 3DS games more enjoyable than ever.

The new features included in the redesign include the following:

Screen Shot Album – Saving and organizing screen shots that people take in games are made easier with the new Screen Shot Album. The private album can only be viewed by the player and can hold up to 100 screen shots from a variety of games. The images can even be neatly sorted by game name for easy searching.

Play Journal – With the Play Journal, players can record their unique game experiences by writing journal entries about games as they play them. Creating a journal entry is as easy as opening Miiverse while playing a compatible game, and each entry will include a screen shot that shows exactly what was happening in the game when the player pressed the HOME button. The new Play Journal feature replaces the ability for users to post directly to their own activity feeds.

New Look – In the main community for each Wii U and Nintendo 3DS game, posts will be categorized in three easy-to-browse sections:

Play Journal Entries – All Play Journal entries from players about a specific game will be located here. By viewing the displayed screen shots, players can quickly find other players who are in the same section of the game, making it easy to find relevant tips, comments and experiences.

Drawings – Miiverse is full of incredible drawings from fans. This community section will display artwork other players have created about the game, in order of popularity.

Discussions – If players want to ask questions or start conversations about a game, this is the perfect place to do it. The inclusion of tags in these discussions makes it easier for players to find what they are looking for.

Miiverse can be accessed on the Wii U or Nintendo 3DS systems, as well as via Web browsers. For more information about Miiverse, visit https://miiverse.nintendo.net/.


Nintendo said that the new version of Miiverse would be going live today, and those changes have now been put into effect. You can check out the updates to the social network through your browser here. It’s up and running on Wii U and 3DS as well.
