Nintendo Confirms Miiverse for 3DS "Soon", Smartphone Apps for Network Also Coming

Keeping us connected at any time

Launched on the Wii U, Miiverse has slowly and surely come a long way. Regular updates since launch have allowed longer messages to be posted, the sharing of posts to external networks such as Twitter and Facebook, and perhaps most importantly the launch of a web version — https://miiverse.nintendo.net — which...

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.

Review: Art Academy: SketchPad (Wii U eShop)

Art Academy: SketchPad (Wii U eShop)

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...

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.

Feature: A Miiverse Adventure With Mega Man X

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...

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 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...
