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.”
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.
Nintendo of America has announced via Twitter that the Spin The Bottle Wii U update is now live. The update adds an impressive six new mini games and is absolutely free.

Wooooo! Spin the Bottle: Bumpie’s Party just added six new fun mini-games. Download the game in the #eShop on #WiiU. http://spr.ly/60145p96

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.

Nintendo has provided a detailed update on the recent Nintendo Network outage. Via its Facebook page, the firm says the primary causes of the current downtime are due to an influx of Nintendo Network accounts being created and accessing the Nintendo eShop. Nintendo has also apologized once again to those who are affected by the service’s unavailability, and says it will continue updating fans on the matter. Read the company’s Facebook post in its entirety below:
Thank you very much for your patience while we perform maintenance on the Nintendo eShop and Nintendo Network. We sincerely appreciate your ongoing support. We wanted to share some details on what is causing this downtime, and update you on the current outage in service.
The initial outage was primarily caused by a one-time surge in demand over the recent holidays, compounded by the following:
1) An influx of new Nintendo Network accounts being created and accessing the Nintendo eShop.
2) Existing Nintendo 3DS account information being moved to new Nintendo Network accounts.
We are continuing to adjust our network to meet the needs of all our services and applications. To ensure our global audience has an expected level of consistency in service, we took the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS offline. We expect to have it back online no later than 4 a.m. ET on Dec. 29, but may have to perform more maintenance in the future.
We truly apologize for the inconsistencies in our online services. We are working hard around the clock to fully restore these functions, and will continue to keep you updated on our progress.
