If you weren't aware, New Super Mario Bros. U (NSMBU) has received its second software update. The first update, version 1.1.0, incorporated in-game Miiverse interaction. The current version 1.2.0 update places all in-game Miiverse exchanges into a new community called "New Super Mario Bros. U Game Posts." This is beneficial to the NSMBU community as it allows Miiverse users to narrow down content for the game. Next time you play the game, the update will install automatically.

Unlike the original NSMBU Miiverse community — where in-game and general posts were combined into the single community — players can now enjoy sifting through thousands of posts in the new and improved New Super Mario Bros. U Game Posts community. What's everyones thoughts on this? Do you like it better, now that all in-game Miiverse activity is posted in one place?

Technically, this is the second title update, but who cares about technicalities? This update hasn't really changed anything in my opinion. It just means that, if I want to browse Miiverse posts for NSMBU, I now have to stalk two separate communities for one game. It feels like more work than anything. Then again, I'm a very lazy person.

I do. Did I miss the first one? What was it?

That's a good point. Unfortunately, I feel this is the direction that Miiverse is headed. It's Nintendo's way of "sorting" the massive amount of posts for each game. Which, in my opinion, feels a tad pointless. Let's face it. Aside from the Miiverse artists and the occasional witty Miiverse message, Miiverse is pretty useless. Well, it is for me, anyway.
The change in posting community is a plus. It also cleans up the Miiverse posts you see in-game on the map, as now they are game-related instead of game and general posts.

@Kevin not a fan on Miiverse? Hopefully, we'll get more functionality out of it once the improvements that leaked today are implemented, and the mobile/web app is released in April/May.

Are you looking forward to the 3DS Miiverse? .

The very first one was on launch day, it being the "enable online features" patch. Just about every online possible Wii U game that got a day one launch alongside the console got that particular patch as their v1.1.

The appeal has worn off for me. I find it rather mundane and cumbersome sifting through all the countless posts. The only aspect I find interesting about it now is seeing the talent of artists, viewing the occasional witty post, and seeing what some of the game directors have to say. Other than that, I just don't find it very entertaining to see all of the 10-year olds spamming the stream to death.

Thank you very much, Luffy. I completely forgot about that one. I've updated the article. :thumbsup:
I think this was an update that will fit perfectly for when they update Miiverse even further to allow for players to immediately load a specific level that was tagged in Miiverse.
