Nintendo has updated the Miiverse in preparation for the social network's debut on Nintendo 3DS next month, the platform holder announced today.
The update is designed to accommodate the influx of traffic from portable users, but includes a number of changes outside of just tidying things up behind the scenes. Most notably, the community list allows more communities to be be viewed at a time. These can also be sorted with a variety of new filters, such as “Wii U software” and “Virtual Console."
Alterations have also been made to Miiverse profiles, which no longer show the number of Yeahs received. Instead these pages now display the total of those given, which Nintendo figures will allow users to focus on showing respect to others.
Lastly, communities themselves have seen an overhaul. Posts made by people who have played the game will be shown first. Fair enough, I suppose, but it's kind of a bummer that prospective buyers of a product (or faithful members of the Dafoeverse) will be segregated from the main conversation.
The Miiverse is slated to launch on Nintendo 3DS sometime in December.
