Mii Verse Coming To Smartphones and Web Browsers In May


Since it was announced, I have been wondering how Nintendo will incorporate the Mii Verse into the mobile platforms.

During a talk at the Game Developers Conference, Kiyoshi Mizuki (Mii Verse Producer)  confirmed that the Mii Verse will be available on Smartphones and Web Browsers within the next couple of months (May).  At first we can expect an app with basic functionality, such as posting comments, viewing posts, doodling, as well as community participation.  There was no word on when we will receive advanced capabilities, or what those capabilities would be.

I am a bit surprised that we did not see a demo of this at PAX East.  I understand that it is not ready, but a mocked up tech demo would have been interesting to see, and would have raised some excitement around the app.

Mizuki also confirmed that the Nintendo 3DS Mii Verse is still in development, however he did not provide a release date/time-frame.

We all knew that the Mii Verse was going to arrive on the mobile platforms.  However, do you feel that they should complete the app before launching it, or is a basic version okay (assuming they provide consistent updates)?

Now time for a little self promotion…recently I submitted a short story to Evil jester Presents, a new comic book company.  Their are working on creating an initial four part horror comic/graphic novel series.  If the series does well, there is a good chance that we will see their comics on store shelves!  Although I won’t know until Sunday if my short story was accepted to be adapted into comic form, I have a lot of passion for the project, and hope you will check out their Kickstarter Page!  I am not asking you to donate (although I won’t stop you), however, if you like the project, please share with your friends.  I am already published in four Anthologies, but this is one that I REALLY want to be accepted into, keep your fingers crossed for me!
