Ok, as I was finally about to turn in and get some sleep this morning, what seemed to be shaping up to be a slow news night/morning immediately became a deluge of information. Even as I was contemplating punching out another post or two, there seemed to be no end to the information drop.
Nintendo has implemented the recently announced Miiverse redesign that quite a few people have found reasons to take issue with. I have found myself only waiting to see how it would all turn out. After checking it out for a few minutes in the wee-hours of the morning, I can say it has potential. The only drawback I can see is the 30-post limit because some of the gaming discussions I have had with Miiverse friends have gone quite far into the multiple post range. Not sure that 30 will be an issue, but in the end I hope it really isn’t.
The other big delivery was the news that on July 31, Super Smash Bros. will be getting a huge update! Long-awaited features, such as tournament mode, are finally making their way to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. Along with Tournament Mode comes YouTube functionality that will allow players to directly upload replays (a la Mario Kart 8). There are also some paid DLC Mii Fighter costumes like King K. Rool, Chrom, and Smash hoodie sweatshirts with more to be revealed tomorrow. There will also be new stages to battle on, as well. We will be getting both Peach’s Castle and Hyrule Castle stages (N64 remakes), both of which are also paid DLC stages.
Are you excited about the new features for Super Smash Bros.? Will you be using Miiverse more for your gaming conversations since this new update?
As always, gaming is meant to be fun, so keep gaming!!
