After posting my Wii U Mii, I thought of a neat idea, posting some of the Miis I’ve gathered over the years playing Wii. Creating an avatar of yourself wasn’t exactly groundbreaking when the Wii came out, but Nintendo did something that was later emulated by Microsoft, adding avatars for game systems. Nintendo did more than simply have a cartoon little guy or gal on your Wii system, they integrated the Miis in certain games. Like with Mario Kart Wii, for example, you could race as your Mii instead of a Nintendo character. Sharing the Miis was a fun part of the Wii system. Now, with Wii U, Nintendo is trying to integrate social features with the system in new ways. The Miiverse is essentially an online message board dedicated to Wii U users and the games they play. Sony is said to be attempting to integrate social features in the next Playstation. With the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, the social aspect has changed and now people can share their avatars in much easier ways. The qr code is a welcome addition to sharing Miis and it allows me to post my Miis right here on my blog. So, I thought it would be fun to make my Miis accessible to my visitors!
It is rare that I feel the need to make a Website News post as I don’t make major changes or additions often, so I am happy to make one for this announcement! The Mii of the Month page! Check out this screenshot bellow:
See? The Mii of the Month page is right there next to the Writing Portfolio page. Once you click on it, you will have access to all the Miis I have posted. The first three are of me, Mark Mushakian, and Stephen Colbert (you can see a picture of his Mii at the top of this post). I will be adding new Miis each month, not sure how often, but probably more than once a month. I have many different kinds of Miis, some celebrities, some made to look like characters from video games and TV shows, and others are regular people. I’ll have a picture with the qr code next to it so you can add it to your Nintendo system if you wish. I’ll have fun adding a Mii or two ever so often and I hope you will enjoy seeing what new additions I make. Also, you can have your Miis on the page too if you want to share them with the world! Just e-mail them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
