A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS Screens - Issue Ten

A Lost World appears, Mega Man meets Pikachu, a risky flight and more

Monday's light relief is here, once again, courtesy of Masahiro Sakurai's posts on the Super Smash Bros. Director's Room on Miiverse. We may not know when we can play this game — yes, we saw the rumoured release dates, but there's not enough salt in the earth for those right now...

News: Nintendo Applies Minor Update to the Wii U Version of Miiverse

Nintendo Applies Minor Update to the Wii U Version of Miiverse

Don't get too excited

Miiverse has evolved a fair bit since its launch with the Wii U in November 2012. It may not feel that way, but the network was certainly more restricted and less intuitive than its current day version, not to mention the fact that it's now available on any web browser. It's also a service that Nintendo has been able to update...

Sonic kicks in, Wii Fit Trainer chills out, Pit battles Samus and more

No Monday would be complete without a fresh dose of Super Smash Bros. screenshots, courtesy of Masahiro Sakurai's efforts on the Miiverse Director's Room community. We don't know when the game will arrive — apart from a vague 2014 window — but we'll happily feast our eyes on...

A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS Screens - Issue Six

Wedding bells (?) in the air, Toon Link's arrival and more

It's Monday, which means Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS screenshot goodness from the Miiverse Director's Room community; Masahiro Sakurai, by simply posting five screenshots a week, is certainly bringing a little extra joy to our lives. Last week we had the reveal of Toon Link, while the...

News: Extended Nintendo Network and Miiverse Maintenance Confirmed for 30th September

Extended Nintendo Network and Miiverse Maintenance Confirmed for 30th September

Will affect online play and leaderboards as well as the bespoke network

The Nintendo Network and Miiverse have a fairly solid track record in minimising downtime, but some upcoming maintenance will take the service down for a fairly extended period; there's some loose speculation on the web that this could be related to a potential Wii U update,...

A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS Screens - Issue Five

Olimar on 3DS, all the Single Ladies, a stage tunnel (?!) and more

It's time once again to build our hype for Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS ahead of its 2014 (hopefully) release. Masahiro Sakurai, as normal, used the Smash Bros. Director's Room on Miiverse to share five new images last week; all to tantalise us further. It was a week without...

A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS Screens - Issue Four

Plane trouble, Kirby, the arrival of Peach and more

It's that time again, dear readers, when we bring together the lovely images shared by Masahiro Sakurai last week over on Miiverse. Even though Super Smash Bros. only has a vague 2014 release window, that doesn't mean we can't be hyped for it now, to the point we'll be positively combustible when...

Miiverse Update Allows Activity Feed Posts Outside of Communities

It's MiiTwitter

We've compared Miiverse to Twitter — as well as other social networks — a few times in the past, but a subtle update seems to have expanded the bespoke network to something even closer to the ever-present tweeting medium. You can now post comments on anything you want, within the Miiverse rules, on your Activity Feed without...

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. If he really wanted to send us some goodies he'd persuade his Pikmin masses to find...

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...

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

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...

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...

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...
