Can't believe this site is actually here... it's been down every other time I've tried. I'm guessing Jose is trying to grab some traffic from the Switch launch?

Anyway, since there aren't really any other places on the web that I know of for Mii enthusiasts, I figured I would report on what the Mii editor on the Nintendo Switch adds over the previous versions.

First the bad news: there are no new pieces for face, hair, eyes, nose, mouth, or facial hair.

They have added some new pairs of glasses, however. There are some new frame styles, and some options with opaque lenses (so they completely obscure what's behind them -- some possibly interesting design possibilities there).

Here's the bigger news: most of the color palettes in the editor have expanded to 100 choices! The editor gives you the traditional options for hair color, skin color, eye color et al., and also has an "All Colors" option which expands the options to 100. Finally you can give a Mii white hair, blue hair, and much, much more. I'm already thinking of updates I can make to a ton of my Miis using this.

One other thing I noticed: the sliders for a Mii's height and weight are slightly expanded, so you can make it a little taller or fatter if you want to.

That's all I've noticed for the editor itself. One major pain about the Switch is that there is no way to import Miis other than to copy it from an amiibo, which means you can only transfer them one at a time. Additionally, Miis on Switch have lost most of their metadata options: you can no longer give them a creator name, birthday, or flag them to disallow copying and sharing. There also appear to no longer be QR codes (since Switch doesn't have a camera anyway). It also loses Wii U's handy "Save as Image" feature. You can just use the Share button to capture a screenshot in the editor and then crop it down, but that adds a step.

That's all I've noticed so far. If I see anything I missed I'll update... if anyone will ever even read this.

I was looking back at some screenshots from the games that were on showcase at E3 for the Wii U, and I came across this image from New Super Mario Bros. Mii:
http://www.1up.com/do/slideshow?pager.offset=4&tr=y&mt=0&cId=3176016&mId=3901426&tr=m

Several of those Miis feature some of the new parts included with the 3DS Mii editor. So, it appears that the updated Mii editor will indeed be built into the Wii U. Who knows? They may even add even more features with that iteration.

I saw an episode of the Graham Norton Show wherein Gillian Anderson even has an affected British accent. Really, Gillian?

Anyway, five stars.

Nice! I've had a Tigh to accompany my Adama on the back burner for a few years now. One of these days I'll get around to him, but it's going to be hard to top this one.

Even though you have to kind of squint to get the ear and forehead effect, you did a great job with these, and the faces themselves are fantastic.

Yeah, I went back and forth between this and a few other hairstyles, but all of them were even less "right" than this one. Sometimes, I think they could add five hundred new hair types, and still not have all the bases covered.

I am betting that the new system being unveiled at E3 will support Miis, and will probably add the parts from the 3DS editor. I would imagine that they will, at a minimum, need to up-res the face parts, since the system will display HD graphics.

The next system looks like pretty heady stuff. It features "Screen Stream" controllers that have a screen on them, which can display parts of the TV screen, or their own data (think play-calling in a sports game, or HUD info). And it's rumored that some games may allow you to play them on just those screens, without a TV at all.

Ever since last night, the Edit feature on a Mii page hasn't been allowing me to update images on my Miis, as you suggested above. Now, the Edit pop-up won't appear at all.

Isaac, that's complete nonsense. The Wii VC emulations run at full 640x480 VGA resolution, whereas the NES itself can only output a resolution of 256x240. I have my NES plugged into an AV receiver which is capable of up-rezzing the picture, and even then it looks like utter crap compared with the Wii versions...to say nothing of when the up-rez is turned off.

Okay, that works great for everything that's in a compilation. But you'll still have to buy from Virtual Console for the other 95% of games that are on there.

The Wii has given me a lot of good times, I have to say. It's been a little dry this year in terms of quality releases, but I still got Dokapon Kingdom, Muramasa and Resident Evil, plus NSMBWii today. I can't say that my PS3 has provided me with anything even approaching the same hours of enjoyment. The 360 has been far more kind and I've been really enjoying that system, but game-wise, the Wii is definitely a strong number 2.

I've just finished Sam & Max Season Two and Axel and Pixel, so now I'm going back to Muramasa and hopefully LostWinds 2 soon.

I think it hasn't changed, actually. It was probably always this way; it's just that every other month before now, the person in the highest place who hadn't already won the title was still in the top ten. But nowadays the top ten changes little, and is full of ten title-holders.

Nice one. She's one of my favorite characters from Third Strike. One of the toughest to master, but devastating once you do.

I think perhaps you have to crack the top ten to get the title? So if the top ten people already have it, no one gets it. That's my guess.

I hear what you're saying, but since Nintendo only comes out with one or two new channels per year (even fewer than that actually make it to the US), I just wish they'd do a few things that are less light and frivolous. Take the Everybody Votes Channel as an example: that program is shallower than a cookie sheet thanks to the nature of the questions they ask ("Do you prefer chocolate or vanilla?"). It's almost as if there is a "No Substance Allowed" directive at work in the development of these channels, which is all the more puzzling considering how long it takes Nintendo to make them.

Since buying a stand-alone Blu-ray player, I've rarely turned my PS3 on. It has only three or four games that interest me which aren't on one of the other systems.

It's a shame, really. Wii Channels have so much untapped potential. They could have been used for things like game discussion, ordering food, merch sales, Mii chat lobby...but instead they come up with stuff like this.

Indeed. I've never copied a Mii and I'm happy to say such. I've borrowed a mouth here or a character idea there from some of my fellow no-copiers, of course: I think most of us have done that, and it's actually a large and positive part of art that artists inspire one another and the biggest reason why I enjoy this site. But outright copying, never. I don't even know what kind of satisfaction people could gain from earning stars on Miis they didn't make.



It's funny: I've even seen a Mii on the CMOC that was copied from one of mine, and the copier turned out to be someone on my Wii friends list to whom I sent my own version of the Mii via the Mii Channel awhile back.

I'm looking forward to this one. The first one was a really enjoyable, albeit short, little game that really shows how graphically pleasing a Wii game can be even without supercharged hardware.

That was pretty cool of the guy. It would of course be even cooler if he just made his own stuff, but in lieu of that, giving credit where due is a rare occurrence on the CMOC.

The code from the second game entered into the first just unlocks some concept art, and the code from the first entered into the second unlocks a sliding puzzle. You may as well just wait until you pick it up, though I can give you the code if you really can't wait.

I've got a few more of Layton's Challenges to complete, and then it's just a few months' worth of weekly downloadable puzzles left to me before I have to wait lord-knows-how-long for Professor Layton and the Last Time Travel.

SF shallow? Pfft. SF is one of the most purely technical games around, especially Third Strike. Not liking it is one thing, but calling it shallow just doesn't hold up.

I agree about the DS though. Can't wait for Scribblenauts.

I have to say PaperLucario, I don't understand your comments. On one hand you want them to give Mario, Zelda and Metroid a rest, but on the other you want them to remember their old fans. The old fans are the people who want those games! Besides, Nintendo does release other games: look at Pikmin, Sin & Punishment 2 coming this year, and of course they do a lot of original stuff on the DS such as Professor Layton.

As for the complaints about the difficulty of games getting lower over time, Nintendo's not the only guilty party there. Gaming as a whole has become much easier than it used to be, no matter which consoles or games you purchase.
