Nintendo will be redesigning Miiverse, the cross platform online social network and message board at the center of the Nintendo Network, has been a source of goofy entertainment, and a platform for players to share their best moments and impressions with each other, and for developers to communicate with the players, ever since it launched; and now, Nintendo will be giving the service its first major makeover since its original launch in 2012.
The redesign will promise a number of ways to document and share your gaming experience with other Miiverse users, making the process far easier than it has been so far. The first of these changes is the Screenshot Album, which lets you store and optionally share up to 100 screenshots at a time. The Activity Feed will also be revamped: it will now be the Play Journal, and it will allow you to take notes as you are playing a game to document your experiences. Each entry will also be saved with a screenshot to help you keep track of where you were and what you were doing when you started writing.
Finally, Nintendo will also be overhauling the community hubs- players will now be able to check in on a particular game and navigate between three main types of posts people have been sharing, journal entries, drawings, and discussions, which means you should be able to filter out all the useless fan art or ‘I found this ? block in Mario!’ post with ease, and get to what you want.
The menus and UI will also be touched up, meaning we should theoretically see a Miiverse that is more pleasant to use. Whether or not users actually use it as intended is, of course, something that remains to be seen. The re-design comes this summer.
