Nintendo has announced that Miiverse will be updated later this summer with a slew of new features and a complete redesign. The update will include some additional functions and some modifications to existing communities and the activity feed.
A new screenshot album tool will allow each Miiverse user to save up to 100 game screenshots in his or her own private space. The new Play Journal feature will make capturing and discussing certain moments in a game much easier. These will include large screenshots alongside user commentary on the game. Finally, in what is perhaps the biggest change, the community pages in Miiverse are getting a new paint job.
Communities will now feature categorized posts, allowing users to browse just Play Journals, Drawings, or Discussions. This is a change over the continuous feed of all types of content currently featured on Miiverse. However, this update will get rid of the activity feed feature, which is being replaced by the Play Journals. Miiverse is also lifting restrictions on posting many times in succession. This comes with a caveat as users will now be limited to making 30 posts per day.
There is no date set for this Miiverse update yet, only a vague “summer” time frame. So, we should probably expect the changes to come by the end of August. Are you interested in the new Miiverse redesign? Were you ever even interested in Miiverse? Let us with a drawing on your Gamepad below!
