Nintendo has released a new update for Pokemon X and Y today. The new update brings both games up to version 1.3 and features stability enhancements and general bug fixes. As per usual, you’ll need to update your copy of X and Y in order to battle other players in online multiplayer with the Player Search System, or if you’d like to use wonder trade, game sync, or download new Pokemon via mystery gift.
Considering Diancie begun distribution on October 27 throughout US GameStop stores, it’s a possible explanation as to why many users were encountering error codes. Players will need to make sure they have space on their SD card for the 320 block download, which can be found over on the eShop or when launching the software.
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.

Matt Bozon, Director of the Shantae series, has announced that the company is extremely excited about the prospect of the new Nintendo 3DS which launches next month in Japan. Bozon says that WayForward Technologies are already working on an update patch for Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse that will take full advantage of the new hardware from Nintendo. The company also confirmed that Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse will run at a blazing 60 frames-per-second on a regular 3DS with the stereoscopic 3D turned on.
“We’re really excited about the New 3DS! We have an update for Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse already underway, which will add a ‘quick select’ control scheme, as well as other minor improvements to the game. Look for that to arrive closer to the launch of the New 3DS in the US.”
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)
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.
A minor update for the web version of Miiverse has been rolled out. As always, Marty is on board to give us the details on the update, which can be found here. Web users no longer have to log in to their Wii U and 3DS Miiverse accounts in order to select three favourite game genres, as you can now do so straight from the web. To set your favourite genres, simply go to your User Page, then User Menu and into Profile Settings to select them.
