  • Feature A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS Screens - Issue One

    With thanks, Sakurai-san

    In late July we published a list of our favourite Wii U and 3DS Smash Bros. screens so far. Masahiro Sakurai, the popular designer that leads the franchise, has been releasing a new screenshot every weekday, alternating between Wii U and 3DS images. In most cases they show funny poses or cool moves in action, and...

  • Feature The World of Pikmin 3 on Miiverse

    Now that the world's had time to explore

    In case you haven't seen it, our video man Rory Cocker has spent the past weeks documenting Pikmin behaviour on Planet PNF-404, bravely filming while trying to send fruit to Nintendo Life HQ to satisfy our snacking habits. If he really wanted to send us some goodies he'd persuade his Pikmin masses to find...

  • Feature Some Early Miiverse Favourites From Art Academy: SketchPad

    Lots of talent on display

    Last week brought the release of Art Academy: SketchPad, a Wii U eShop tool-set that's a budget-priced warm-up for a full app to come at a later date; it gives artists a chance to show what they can do on Miiverse. It means that Wii U owners are no longer restricted to sharing monochromatic drawings, and though the app is...

    Review Art Academy: SketchPad

    A masterpiece or sketchy at best?

    One of the most fascinating things about Miiverse is how Nintendo is paying such close attention to it. Not just in the sense that it is regularly updating it, but rather the company is actually listening to what its consumers are saying on the platform. It's remarkably unusual for a company that until now had been...

  • Out Now Art Academy: SketchPad Arrives, Right on Time, in North America and Europe

    Not a drawn out release after all

    Earlier in the week, as part of a Nintendo Direct broadcast, it was confirmed that Art Academy: SketchPad would be coming to the Wii U eShop today, 9th August. It's a drawing app that incorporates some of what will eventually be a full Art Academy title for the system, and includes various tools and full Miiverse...

  • News Shigeru Miyamoto Points the Way to Uncovering Pikmin 3's Hidden Secrets

    You still have plenty of hard work ahead

    A week ago we told you that Shigeru Miyamoto confirmed hidden memos in Pikmin 3 by posting on the game's announcement community on Miiverse. These ten secret memos are scattered throughout the game, and the numbers contained within combine to form a code; at that point the legendary Designer teased that he'd...

  • News Miiverse Update Adds Tags to Posts

    Character limit for messages also increased

    Filtering through the walls of posts in Miiverse communities has become easier thanks to an announced update that includes the ability to add certain tags to posts. Tags vary by community and type of game, but can include Question, Accomplishment, Impressions, Retro and Players Wanted. These tags will...

  • Feature EarthBound Captivates Miiverse

    The old and rare meets new and inclusive

    More than a week ago, EarthBound arrived on the Wii U Virtual Console, with Nintendo adopting a shock tactic by releasing the long-awaited title with no advance notice. Though the merits of dropping one of the Nintendo community's most talked about games onto the service in that manner can be debated, what...

  • News New Super Luigi U Competition Opens On Miiverse

    The least number of coins wins!

    New Super Luigi U has been available in the Wii U eShop for a good while now and plenty of people have picked it up and completed the 82 extra levels starring Mario's green-glad brother. Upon finishing it you can check out your records, which is handy to see just how you got on, and now the game's director Masataka...

  • News Miiverse Update Doubles Character Limit for Posts

    Take that, Twitter

    The Wii U's bespoke social network, Miiverse, has seen quite a few changes since its initial launch in North America on 18th November 2012. It's escaped the Wii U hardware with a neat web browser version — though you do need a Nintendo Network ID to use it fully — and has seen various other tweaks and changes to improve the...

  • News Toki Tori 2 Miiverse Drawing Contest Flies Into Its Second Half

    Now for some downtime

    Toki Tori 2 developer Two Tribes has been going out of its way to engage and reward fans of the Wii U eShop title, with a meaty update and, in the past couple of weeks, a Miiverse drawing contest. Each week the studio has set a theme, sifted through a shortlist of those with the most 'Yeahs' and picked winners that'll appear...

  • Feature A Miiverse Adventure With Mega Man X

    Time for some Megan Man, er, Mega Man

    A little while ago we reviewed Mega Man X on the Wii U Virtual Console, and liked it a lot. We happen to think this is a brilliant game, but it may nevertheless seem peculiar to those encountering it for the first time. We decided to try and see the game through fresh eyes while working on the review, and below...

  • News Toki Tori 2 Miiverse Drawing Contest Flutters Into Round Two

    Getting historical

    A little over a week ago we reported on an interesting Toki Tori 2 Miiverse drawing contest that was launched by Two Tribes, aiming to encourage the talented artists in the game's community to share even more creations. The prize is a grand one, with winning drawings set to appear as cave drawings in the game. The contest is...

  • News Miiverse Update Adds Facebook and Twitter Sharing

    Or Google+ and Tumblr, if you prefer

    While most attention is currently drawn to the floor at E3, Nintendo has applied a Miiverse update that now allows you to share posts on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Tumblr. It's another smart move for the bespoke network, especially as those with a Nintendo Network ID can now view individual posts when...

  • News Mario Kart TV Will Allow You To Share Your Racing Skills On Miiverse

    Nintendo announces new feature for Mario Kart 8

    Nintendo has just confirmed that Mario Kart 8 will allow players to share their best races using a service called Mario Kart TV. According to IGN, players will be able to record and upload their performances to Miiverse, where other players can pass comments on their skills. This is similar to the...

  • News Miiverse Photo Attachment Option Teased

    Still in its test phase

    The run up to E3 is full of teasing and surprises, and this year it's no different. Nintendo employee, Tom, was on a flight to LA earlier on with Reggie and let everyone know he was doing so by posting on Miiverse. However, this post featured an image of the plane's wing, suggesting photo attachments may be available in the...

  • News Nintendo Launches E3 Miiverse Communities

    Use your happy face

    With Nintendo opting to go its own way with its E3 messaging this year, moving away from a live conference in favour of a special Nintendo Direct broadcast and other promised snippets of footage and news, it's naturally taken to its bespoke social network on Wii U to spread the word further. Announcements have appeared (from...

  • News Two Tribes Launches Toki Tori 2 Miiverse Drawing Contest

    Your artwork could appear in the game

    When it comes to Toki Tori 2 on the Wii U eShop, no-one can accuse developer Two Tribes of releasing the title and then simply walking away. The studio has actively sought the opinions of those that have played the game, applying feedback to a substantial update that improved and tweaked various aspects of the...
