Watch Dogs appears to be one of the first high profile third-party title not to allow for screenshot sharing via Wii U social network, Miiverse. A number of fans who’ve picked up the game have taken to the social network to complain that they’re unable to share images with other Miiverse users. You may have missed it, but we uploaded the first 25 minutes of the game which you can watch here. Anyway, here’s what a Miiverse fan had to say about the situation.
No screenshots allowed. I tried attaching one to this Miiverse post, I also tried the web browser method at i.nintendo.net.
Thanks Lord Zedd
Nintendo are set to issue a new update later this month to its social network Miiverse – and it will make big changes to user profiles. Though members of the network are usually notified of the changes when the update is live, Miiverse’s Marty has given current users plenty of time to understand such changes.
In his message, which you can view here, Marty explains that all user profiles will be made public in the next update. Currently, users must sign in using their NNID to view other posters profiles, but when the update is issued sometime between mid-to-late November, non-Miiverse members will be able to see anyone’s profile – providing it’s set to “Everyone” in the privacy settings menu. If you do not wish your profile to be viewed by the public, you can change your settings accordingly via the user page.
As per usual, Marty will be sure to post the update when the changes come into view. Will this will be the only change in the update in late November, or could there be a few others too? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Pikmin creator Shigeru Miyamoto is set to hold a special drawing competition to celebrate the recent arrival of his Pikmin short movies. Shared over Miiverse, Miyamoto has called out to Art Academy: SketchPad artists to submit drawings based on the theme “Pikmin Spotted”. Users are invited to submit their drawings in the Art Academy Events community by November 30, 2014, and must own the application before doing so. For those who don’t own the application, you will still able to view the artwork by logging into Miiverse and selecting the community.
Nintendo has previously held Miiverse drawing competitions through SketchPad. You may remember Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma also invited artists to share their incredible visions of their favourite characters from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds back in January. Below you’ll find Miyamoto’s message from Miiverse.
Hello, this is Shigeru Miyamoto from Nintendo! To commemorate the release of PIKMIN Short Movies on Nintendo eShop, I would like to ask all artists using Art Academy: SketchPad to help share the charm of Pikmin with everyone. In the Art Academy Events community, we will be holding a drawing challenge with the theme “Pikmin Spotted!” The deadline will be 30th November 2014.
You will need to own the Art Academy: SketchPad software to submit your drawings. However, anyone can swing by and enjoy browsing through all the wonderful artwork, so I hope you’ll come visit the event page!
Nintendo of America has confirmed that there will be a Miiverse based stage in Super Smash Bros Wii U. You’ll see real life messages from users while you’re fighting on this particular stage. Super Smash Bros Wii U will also feature eight player battles.
Nintendo has released a new Miiverse update today. Although minor, the update will allow users to filter their activity feeds on both the Wii U and web version to “Friends Only” or “All”. By selecting the “All” button at the top of the page, a drop down menu will pop up and allow users to select between displaying their friends updates or all those they follow on Miiverse.
Other than that, Marty has relayed that the search box for finding users has been moved to the top of the page on the Wii U and 3DS versions. It’s the same as the web version, which was moved to the top of the community list in the update last month for ease of access.
Super Smash Bros producer Masahiro Sakurai has said on Miiverse that he will now concentrate on posting hidden elements from the Super Smash Bros franchise now that the 3DS version has launched worldwide. Sakurai also said that he will stop posting Super Smash Bros images on Miiverse by the end of the year.
Finally, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is being released overseas. Congratulations!! With the game released globally, from here on out I’ll be posting about some of the hidden elements in the game. However, for now they’ll only trickle down a little bit at a time. I’ll be done with posting new pics by the end of the year, so I hope you’ll enjoy the rest of the ride.
The ever so informative Marty from Nintendo has informed Miiverse users that there has been an update to the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS social network. For those that use the web version of Miiverse you’ll be pleased to know that the search function is now in a more prominent place at the top of the community list. You can also now search for Wii U and 3DS owners using the search box and this change will also pass over to the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Miiverse. You can read about the changes, below.
1) We changed the position of the community search function in the web version of Miiverse. The search box is now at the top of the community list.
2) Previously you could only search for users in the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Miiverse, but you can now search for them in the web version too. The search box is at the top of the activity feed in the web version. We plan to move it there in the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Miiverse in a future update.
Thanks, Kallum S
