Miiverse Update Now Allows Screenshots to be Posted in Comments

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Cue screen-by-screen walkthroughs

One curiosity with Miiverse, despite its various strengths, has been the no-screenshot limitation when replying to a post with a comment; that functionality has been limited to fresh posts, meaning that any conversations on how to progress in a game — particularly one as baffling as Super Metroid — was limited to words or hand-drawn doodles.

While browsing the latest Miiverse update posts, we've spotted a message from last week confirming that you can now add screenshots in reply comments, too. We imagine this'll be helpful if you want to show someone how to pass a key point, as you can simply progress to that area of the game and jump onto Miiverse with a useful reply. We can see potential for "where are you in the game" style threads and, we imagine, lengthy affairs that serve as bite-sized walkthroughs. With the Miiverse community, we expect it to be interesting, at least.

It's another excellent addition, and if you want proof you can squint at our not-at-all-fuzzy picture below. A small touch, but do you think you'll be throwing screenshots into your Miiverse comments?

Miiverse is much better than I anticipated and quite useful. Nintendo is doing an excellent moderating job because the signal-to-noise ratio is very good

Didn't Nintendo say thay would be adding the ability to post Youtube vids at some point on miiverse? Being able to take a screen-shots of the game your playing is good, one of the reasons i'm looking forwards to the PS4, is being able to make your own gameplay vids.

I already knew this, but it is nice. Miiverse, already a wonderful service, only gets better with each update.

@Araknie yes to clarify I would like to be able to post a link to youtube in miiverse so that I don't have to leave miiverse to view the video. much like the developers and nintendo staff have the ability to do. also the ability to upload videos from in-game to youtube without having to have specialized equipment would be nice.

You can't do any instant cool drawings from the games you're playing on Sony or Microsoft consoles that's for sure.

On 3DS they probably face a problem doing it so quick and instant like with the Wii U. Swapnote takes a while to load etc. It is a perfect fit for Wii U.

How can miiverse be used? I don't really have much experience with it. Pretty much all I see of miiverse is the whiny comments that pop up after I die in NSMBU. I have only been in the miiverse channel a couple of times.

I partially want a Wii U just to use Miiverse since it looks like something I could mess with for hours.

Yea I've had my Wii U a week now and Miiverse is totally unexpectedly awesome!
