Nintendo Banned Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida From Miiverse Twice

Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida has revealed that he was banned from Miiverse a couple of times. Yoshida, who leads the firm’s PlayStation sector, violated the Miiverse code of conduct by promoting his Twitter handle – @yosp – and by expressing his affection for the PlayStation brand. The Sony executive previously confirmed that he owns two Wii U consoles.

“The first time was because I had my Twitter account in my profile and that’s against the rules,” Yoshida said. “The second time is because I wrote, ‘I love PS.’ You’re not supposed to promote a commercial product in MiiVerse, so they correctly interpreted ‘PS’ as PlayStation.”


Miyamoto Says The Year Of Luigi Has Officially Ended

Legendary Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto has taken to Miiverse to declare that the Year of Luigi has finally come to an end. To commemorate the Year of Luigi, Nintendo also created a special webpage which is filled with Miiverse art and comments. It’s worth checking out and you can view it here.

Hi everyone, thanks so much for your warm comments for Luigi!

We selected a few of the comments and placed them on our website. Just select the internet browser icon or the link at the end of this post to go to the page and have a look!

Well, ahem…now, without further ado…

I hereby declare the Year of Luigi closed!

Thank you all so very much for your kind support over the course of the year!

Even though the Year of Luigi has come to a close, I hope you will continue to cheer on Luigi. Thank you!


Marty Lists Wii U And Nintendo 3DS Miiverse Improvements

There has been an update to the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Miiverse today and Marty has listed some of the changes that users should expect to see rolled out in the social application.

1) We’ve added a community search feature. Select “Search” on the bottom-right of the Communities screen to search for communities. Just enter a game title (or part of one) in the search field and you’ll get a list of all the communities related to that game. 2) You can now see a list of posts by verified users. Select “Posts from Verified Users” at the top of the Communities screen to display only posts by verified users. 3) You can now see a list of communities for the games you’ve played. On the “Favourite Communities” screen, you can now switch between displaying “Favourites” and “Played”. Select “Played” to see a list of communities for all the games you’ve played on the Nintendo 3DS system or Wii U console you’re currently using (if they have a Miiverse community).

4) You can now mark a post as containing spoilers even after posting it. If you forget to tick the Spoilers box when posting, you can now go back and do it later. You can also mark other people’s comments on your post as spoilers. Just select the spanner icon on the bottom-right of a post or comment, then select “Set as Spoiler” (the other option is “Delete”). 5) You can now attach screenshots when posting to your activity feed. If a certain game has a community which allows attaching in-game screenshots to your posts, you will also be able to attach screenshots from that game when posting to the activity feed.

Thanks to those who sent this in.


New Miiverse Feature Allows You To Filter Popular Posts By Date

Miiverse has had another minor update on both Wii U and 3DS. Marty’s been on hand to divulge the new feature’s details in Nintendo’s online community, which allows members to filter popular posts within communities by date. Here’s what Marty said in full:

“We’ve added a feature that lets you filter a community’s popular posts by date. Note that the date displayed is when the posts were popular, rather than when they were made.”


Small Miiverse Update For 3DS And Wii U

Miiverse has had a small update affecting both Wii U and 3DS versions. Marty has given us the low-down detailing that users can now unfollow and follow other users directly from the followers page, rather than going through the hassle of opening their profile page first. And if in doubt about whether you can post a screenshot to a Miiverse community, the update has given us a handy “X”, which will display for communities that do not support screenshot attachments.

Aside from the updates above, the Wii U also has an additional update, which can allow you to play posted videos in high quality format. Though if there’s no HQ version available, the video will continue to play in normal quality. It’s not a large update by any means, but it’s marginally bigger than the update earlier this month.

Miyamoto Says The Year Of Luigi Will Conclude March 18, Miiverse Communities To Close

Renowned designer Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed the Year of Luigi will officially conclude in mid-March. Our love for the green plumber and his exclamation of glee in Super Mario 3D World, his clumsiness in Mario and Luigi: Dream Team Bros, or a shiver and a ‘oh no’ in Luigi’s Mansion 2, will be some of the most memorable moments from this year. So it’s with a heavy heart that we must part with Luigi as his 30th Anniversary ends, and give the glory back to Mario.

The Year of Luigi Miiverse community and developers’ room will sadly close on March 18, so there’s still time to share your messages on the moustachioed man. But if you want to leave a special message for Luigi, you can respond to Miyamoto’s post straight on Miiverse – make it count though, as it’s limited to one post per person. Have you got any memorable moments from the Year of Luigi? Let us know your favourites in the comments below.

“Almost a year has passed since I announced the Year of Luigi, marking the 30th anniversary of Luigi’s debut. Thanks to everyone’s kind support, we were able to release many Luigi games over the course of the year. I hope everyone continues to cheer for the green brother!

“However, all good things must come to an end, and the Year of Luigi will conclude on March 18. From this date on, the Year of Luigi Community and its Developers’ Room will sadly no longer accept new posts or comments. (The exact date and time is listed in each community’s description.) That means there’s one more month to go. I hope everyone continues to share their thoughts on Luigi with people from around the world!”

Thanks, Jelani


Nintendo Europe Launches Five Miiverse Communities For Classic Zelda Games

Nintendo Europe has announced via Twitter that they’re opening five Miiverse communities for classic Legend of Zelda titles. The Miiverse communities for five Virtual Console Zelda games on Nintendo 3DS have now opened. No doubt there will be some great drawings there.


Two Minor Features Added To Miiverse On Wii U

Nintendo has provided a minor update to Miiverse on the Wii U. In order to create a seamless correlation between the social app on the 3DS and Wii U, the Y button will now refresh the page rather than the Wii U GamePad’s L button. There’s also a new feature added to Miiverse, which allows for quicker movement between posts. Using the L/R shoulder buttons on the GamePad will provide speedier access when scrolling up and down posts.


Aonuma Running Miiverse Zelda Competition For Art Academy SketchPad Users

Eiji Aonuma, the Producer of the Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, has taken to Miiverse to ask users to submit drawings based on the Legend of Zelda series and their favourite character. Aonuma says that he was so impressed with the response to the Luigi Exhibition that he now wants to run his own competition. You can read the details, below.

Hi, Art Academy SketchPad users! This is Eiji Aonuma, the Producer of the Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. I was so impressed by the Luigi Exhibition that I came here to ask you all to post drawings based on the Legend of Zelda series! For this event, the theme is to draw your favorite characters from the Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds! Express your creativity by setting characters from the game in your original situations.


• Pictures must be drawn using Art Academy: SketchPad which is available for purchase in the eShop.

• Pictures must feature at least one character from the Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.

• Entries are limited to one original work per person.

• Comment on this post to submit your entry.

• Pictures will be chosen based on a rating system that considers skills, artistic expression and creativity.

• The artists whose entries receive the highest rating will be chosen by Nintendo. We may share your drawings outside Miiverse.

Remember, this is a global event, so please avoid using writing in your work. The event will end on Feb. 16, 2014 or after there are over 1000 comments, whichever comes first. Works that stood out to us will be recognized under the categories of Gold Star, Silver Star, Bronze Star, Aonuma’s Favorites, and Art Academy Favorites in this community. Depending on what drawings are submitted, we may add more categories! Regardless of if you own Art Academy: SketchPad or not, I am also looking forward to seeing your Yeah!s, comments and the names of artists you would like to compliment. If you need character reference, a link to our Japanese official site is below. This event is not only about drawing skill but also creativity, so don’t be shy and have fun! Note: If you submit a drawing as a comment to this post, you grant to Nintendo the royalty-free right to publish your drawings online and offline.

Thanks, Retrogaminglord


NES Remix Miiverse Competition

Hey there! I’m Koichi Hayashida, the director of NES Remix. I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. Today, I have news about a classic and fun event for people that own the game! Starting today, the Time Attack Challenge begins! Some of you might remember this from the original Mario Bros., which was released in 1983 for the NES in North America.

We gave this stage a little twist compared to the stages from the original version—you have to control two Mario characters at the same time! As one of your final challenges before 2014, see how fast you can complete the challenge! Send in your best time by posting a screenshot of the Stage Selection Screen with the Clear Time for REMIX I STAGE 4 “Collect all the coins!” to this post . [See the sample screenshot on this post.]

Remember to type or write your best time in a comment with your post. The fastest time posted in this community will be officially recorded by Nintendo! The event will end at 7pm (PT) on January 2nd, or when the total number of comments reaches 1000. Lookout for the tutorial video for the stage we’re sharing next week to help improve your scores. There are no limits on the number of scores you can post. I hope this will be a fun and exciting challenge for gamers that played this game in the original Mario Bros. and for those that are playing it for the first time in NES REMIX!
