Nintendo Updates Wii Sports Club To Version 4.1, Features Minimal Bug Fixes

A new update for Wii Sports Club has arrived bumping it to version 4.1 after its physical retail release last week. According to the official Nintendo site, the update fixes minimal bugs and issues with no real major enhancements to gameplay. Though there’s no particular song and dance in the boxing ring or tennis court to be made here, the update will bring a smoother run for online activity as well as a tennis score card fix for both North America and Europe.  Below you can find the official word from Nintendo.

  • Fixes an issue where the results of online Two-Player Team Play tennis matches were not displayed correctly in Play Records
  • Introduces additional enhancements to improve the user’s experience and enjoyment

New Miiverse Update Enables Multiple Line Breaks In Posts

Miiverse has had another minor update today and, as always, Marty has all the new details for us. For the first time, Miiverse users can now write posts and comments across multiple lines, meaning the “Enter” button on the keyboard can be used to create a new line – or paragraph – instead of an extra space. Rather than lumping all your text together, the update now allows structure to posts and comments, as can be seen in Marty’s post.

However, when viewing a list of posts, users will not be able to see line breaks. In order to see paragraphs, you’ll have to select the post. Plus, there’s a restriction on how many line breaks you can use in each post or comment – using too many will result in an error and you’ll have to reduce them.

The second minor update only affects the Wii U and 3DS versions, which now can show up to three of your favourite game genres on your profile page. Just head to your profile settings on your user page to select three.


Latest Miiverse Update Adds Option To Disable “Yeahs” Appearance In Activity Feed

Nintendo has updated Miiverse today and, as always, Marty is on hand to give us all the necessary details. The appearance of members’ most recent “Yeahs” on the activity feed – added in an earlier update – was frustrating for many regular Miiverse users, so Nintendo has added an option to disable Yeahs from appearing in the feed all together. You can locate the option to do so in your Miiverse settings from the user menu.

But if you’d rather see fewer Yeahs than disabling the option, Nintendo has now reduced the display amount, though members will see the full post instead on both Wii U and 3DS versions.

Further to these changes, an update to the web version of Miiverse is now live, where it matches the Wii U and 3DS versions, as well as including your favourite handwritten post. And finally, there’s also a new feature which allows users to embed a Miiverse post onto a web page – you’ll find the option available at the end of the specific post.

  • Increased TV Tag coverage to all shows on the top 70 channels

New Miiverse Update Allows Users To Set Favourite Posts On Refurbished Profile Page

Nintendo has provided a new update for Miiverse today, and as always Marty is on hand to divulge the details. Up first is an improvement to your individual profile page on the social channel, where ‘user menu’ has been replaced with the option ‘user page’. Clicking on your profile will result in a newly refurbished page, detailing your profile comment and which Nintendo devices you own, followed by pages for your activity feed and connections.

The new profile page, which can only be viewed on Wii U or 3DS, also allows you to select a “favourite post” from a current or past Miiverse post, which can then be proudly displayed as a head banner at the top of your profile. To do so, just touch the spanner icon on any one of your old posts and in the pull down option menu select “favourite post”. You can remove or replace your favourite post by accessing profile settings from the User Page, as well as access the User Menu from within your User Page.

The second minuscule update now allows Miiverse users on all platforms to “Yeah!” comments, as well as posts. Clicking on a comment will also enable users to see some of the people who gave it a Yeah.



Here’s A Look At The New Quick Start Menu For Wii U

The video embedded above gives a better look at just how fast the new quick start menu is for the Wii U. The update should be made available to Wii U owners this summer and allows you to slash the time taken to boot the console. You’re presented by the applications as soon as you click the power button on the Wii U GamePad. You can quickly pick the app you want to use, allowing you to skip the Wii U home screen.


New Miiverse Update Stops Users From Posting To Others In Quick Succession

Nintendo has rolled out a new Miiverse update today and Marty is on hand to divulge the details in the community forum. For those who often access Miiverse on the go from smartphones or the internet, you’ll be pleased to hear there’s now an option to access posts only from verified users. To enable the feature just select “posts from verified users” icon at the top of the community screen and an update will never pass you by again.

The second feature, as Marty explains, is an update to the community search function, allowing you to search for communities by software title. It will affect all versions of Miiverse and, subsequently, means users can no longer post numerous comments in a short space of time on someone else’s post.

According to the update, Miiverse users will have to wait for up to three minutes before being able to post again. However, this only affects other people’s posts, since you can post as many times as you like on your own. Of course, the update will be put to great use in terms of moderation, but it may break up the conversational flow for other users. What do you think to the new update? Let us know in the comments below.

Thanks, Lazara the Last and Anthony


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.
