Miiverse Adds Older 3DS Games Like Fire Emblem, Kid Icarus: Uprising And Ocarina 3D

By Ishaan . December 16, 2013 . 9:30am

Miiverse, Nintendo’s social network, launched for the Nintendo 3DS last week, allowing 3DS owners to share their thoughts and screenshots of a limited selection of games available on the platform. A very limited selection.

 

While you can find communities for more recent games like The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and for a few older titles like Super Mario 3D Land, overall the communities on the 3DS Miiverse are very sparse—especially considering that the platform has been on the market for three years and has accumulated a wealth of games both at retail and via the Nintendo eShop by now.

 

That having been said, it looks as though Nintendo do plan on adding more communities to the 3DS Miiverse as time goes on, even for older games. As of this morning, Miiverse communities have been added for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Star Fox 64 3D, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Fire Emblem: Awakening and more. One would hope this is a practice that continues.

    I want these communities for Miiverse: Resident Evil Revelations, SMT IV and Tales of the Abyss.

    • idrawrobots

      I want a SMT IV miiverse! It’s my favorite handheld, and RPG of 2013.

      • Croix Zapp

        yea, many people quit SMT halfway but i find it strangely addictive

        • reinhold23

          I was among those. Couldn’t get into it and I loathed the purple overworld map.

      • http://gentlerobot.com/ Gentle Robot

        There’s an SMT Soul Hackers community in the European section

    • PersonaSpace

      I was really disappointed that a Miiverse for SMT IV wasn’t present.

      • Taedirk

        I honestly don’t ever see them enabling that. Everyone’ll post dick monster demon screencaps and Nintendo will shit itself in response.

        • InfectedAI

          They don’t have to add a screenshot feature, even though it would be cool.

        • http://gentlerobot.com/ Gentle Robot

          Whatever, my Fire Emblem avatar is called TUFF BITCH and I’m definitely posting that

          • http://thespellcraftcolumn.wordpress.com Rudolph Consuegra

            Just hoping you didn’t marry Ricken.

    • InfectedAI

      I want them to add a general SMT section at least.

    • Shane Guidaboni

      Also waiting for the SMTIV Miiverse.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    MH3U needs photo support for Miiverse…

  • TheExile285

    Still just 1st party titles. Waiting them to add communities for 3rd party games like RF4, SMTIV & SKB.

    • idrawrobots

      I would like one for SKB, obviously. There would be so many pervy drawings.

      • Tyler Beale

        You mean like the pic of Hibari’s and Haruka’s butts slamming together as your avatar?

        ….Right.

        • deadMastershiro

          So thats what that was.

          • Tyler Beale

            Yep. In fact, it’s in the Senran Kagura Burst/Hebijo side opening.

          • idrawrobots

            It’s so ridiculous. I wish that game had more butt.

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      I think you’re out of luck with SKB. You know exactly the kinds of screenshots people who play that game are going to post, and I doubt they want to encourage that sort of behaviour on Miiverse, especially in light of what happened with SwapNote just a few weeks ago.

      • http://www.thejaystack.com/ Jon Stachewicz

        Plus if you could just looo at those screencaps for free what reason would there be to actually buy skb

        • idrawrobots

          It’s a fun game. I actually like the combat more than the boobs in the game.

        • British_Otaku

          Screenshots take away the whole reason to play an animated game experience? … Okay then. >_>

          Even a Youtube full playthrough doesn’t necessarily take away much from the willingness to play an experience.

      • idrawrobots

        Anime cleavage is very different than sending your penis pix to little children.

        • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

          For one, you know as well as I do that “anime cleavage” is probably the most tame thing that is bound to turn up when Senran Kagura is involved. More likely than not, the screenshots that people choose to post would be far worse.

          And for another, the end result is still the same—children being exposed to adult material via a service that Nintendo hosts. In fact, it’s worse in this case, because Miiverse communities are public forums that just about anyone can access.

          • idrawrobots

            I just don’t understand how a 3DS game should be treated any different than a Wii U game. There are plenty of M rated Miiverses and SKB is (somehow) only rated T.

          • domonkun

            Because posts in a M-rated community like Ace Attorney 5 focus on the quirky characters and writing, whereas the developer of SKB specifically wanted the game to focus on T&A.

          • idrawrobots

            I feel like the only person that cares more about the characters personalities and gameplay than the fan service.

        • http://gentlerobot.com/ Gentle Robot

          It was the other way around – kids were sending

          and people draw anime boobs non-stop in the art academy forum

      • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

        they can disable the screenshot.
        Pokemon XY don’t have it

        • domonkun

          It doesn’t matter, the game lends itself to more risque themes by nature, for both handwritten and typed posts. Ace Attorney 5, despite being rated M, got a community because people actually post about the game’s characters and story.

    • domonkun

      There’s a community for Ace Attorney 5, Sonic Lost World, Skylanders, Scribblenauts, MH3U, and I know that Europe has a Bravely Default community which America will probably get too… sooo yeah.

      Not to mention they just added Professor Layton 5.

  • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

    Still waiting on Style Savvy :<

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      It’s coming. Europe already has it. I assume we’ll get it this week.

      • http://twitter.com/puchixseda puchinri

        Ahhh, lucky EU. I hope we’ll get it this week~.

    • InfectedAI

      Not into that franchise, but that’s a series where it really makes sense to be able to share screenshots and have a community for it considering the nature of the games.

      • http://twitter.com/puchixseda puchinri

        Considering how many people share their screens and photo studio pics on Tumblr, it needed a community on Miiverse from the get go.

    • http://twitter.com/puchixseda puchinri

      Same. ;n;

  • surakian

    Now all the need to do is make a SMT4, KH3D, & MGS3 communities and I’m set forever.

  • HershelLousyton

    Finally the question I’ve had written on my profile for ages is answered. http://i.imgur.com/DAnaKNR.jpg

  • fireemblembeast

    Good, good. I was waiting on this.

  • Guest

    But no Style Savvy…

    • British_Otaku

      Nope, there is Style Savvy, I saw it earlier today, maybe not in all of the regions but I saw it.

      EDIT: The European one is up, have fun there till it is up for America.

  • icecoffemix

    Not being able to screenshot their game is very backward and stupid decision from any company, it’s free promotion ffs. Yet strangely Wii U has the best screenshot policy on any console today (lossless), I just don’t understand Nintendo. :/

  • Aemette

    Etrian Odyssey 4 and Untold? I know I know, they’re not “as big/important” as Mario or Pokemon but their popularity is still pretty high.

  • Kaetsu

    I’m so glad they added Fire Emblem.

  • Raltrios

    Yay, Kid Icarus! Now the buddies that I gathered who got cut off thanks to the death of Swapnote and I might be able to band together again!
