A new Miiverse update has been rolled out today – and, as always, Marty is on hand to give us all the necessary details. Changes have been made to the post-filtering function on both Wii U and 3DS versions of Nintendo’s social network. Users will now find two tabs displaying player posts and popular posts – selecting the player posts will filter into the following categories, with the screenshot posts a new addition in today’s update:
- All posts (no filtering)
- Player posts
- Screenshot Posts
- Posts with a tag (Question, Impressions, Accomplishment, and so on)
Miiverse users will also find that a reminder function has now been added to the “saved posts” area on the Nintendo 3DS version. A notification will pop up in your saved posts list saying, “There are posts in the Saved Posts list, which you can check here.” Selecting this will enable users to post such saved posts directly to their activity feed.
And finally, the web version of Miiverse has changed slightly, coming into line with the Wii U and 3DS versions. Users will now find a profile settings option, as well as a larger displayed version of their designated favourite post.
An extremely talented Miiverse user has sketched an incredible tribute to American actor and comedian, Robin Williams. It took Miiverse user Craig thirteen hours to complete the sketch which is possibly the best depiction of someone I’ve seen on the social network.
Thanks, Lord Zedd

Super Smash Bros producer Masahiro Sakurai has revealed via Miiverse that Super Smash Bros for the Nintendo 3DS will feature a gorgeous Paper Mario Sticker Star themed stage. The newly announced stage is fragile so Sakurai hinted that strong winds will blow the stage away. He also revealed a second screenshot this time of a stage based on the S.S. Flavion from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Here’s what Sakurai had to say.
Pic of the day. For the first time ever in the Super Smash Bros. series, here’s a Paper Mario stage! It’s made of paper, so strong winds will blow it away.
Since the stage is paper, it transforms when it folds over and opens up again. This ship is the S.S. Flavion from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.
Thanks to those who sent this in
Super Smash Bros designer Masahiro Sakurai has revealed the final design for the bottom screen on the Nintendo 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. Sakurai says it took a long while to create because the bottom screen now displays images matching each game mode.
Pic of the day. For the first time ever, I present to you…the main menu for the 3DS version!! The icons are even animated. The design concept may look similar if you’ve played other games I’ve worked on. But we had a hard time making this one because…
The bottom screen displays pictures matching each mode! This was quite a task for the UI (User Interface) designers, but they made it happen. Kudos to them! You can tap the screen to look up additional info like how to play–complete with diagrams.
