Nintendo quietly released an update to the Miiverse today, allowing posts to contain up to 200 characters now. The previous limit for the service was 100, which was even more stingy than micro-blogging service Twitter, which allows up to 140 characters. Now with the extended posts available, you’ll be able to converse a bit better on the Miiverse.

This is a much needed change and wipes one of the main problems with Miiverse off the slate, so it’s good to see Nintendo taking initiative and listening to feedback from your users. What other changes would you like to see happen to the Miiverse? Let us know in the comments below.

  • Marcel Kleine

    finally, people have been asking for it a lot

  • Nintedward

    I’ve been waiting for this one for a while now!

    It’s about time , 100 Chars was just bad….. 200 is just right 🙂

    • iceazeama

      yeah isnt it great…… now when im trying to make a deal. we wont have to make so many extra post about it huh. (huge hit) just picture all the possibilities with the extra 100 characters. nice for the never ending business.

    • Matt Cameron

      I see what you did there. 🙂

      • Nintedward

        What did I do 🙂 ? lol

        • your post was 113 characters I’m guessing

      • barwiifan

        What did he do? Please tell me.

    • Bob Charlie

      This is great news! I no longer have to…

      • Bob Charlie

        …type things out in fragments, anymore! Yay!
        P.S. Check out the Japanese Pikmin 3 Direct that released today (6/26)
        I can’t understand Japanese, but they show gameplay, and look to be having loads of fun!

        • Nintedward

          Lol , I always do…

          …those 3 dots when fragmenting a miiverse post xD…

          …yeh Pikmin 3 looks AMAZING. That’s gunna be some 9.5/10 shit all up in ya grill , I can see it now.

    • LopsidedPasta

      The worst was having a post be 101 characters. Then you would have to delete a space

    • I’m one of those new characters

  • Graeme Lynch

    Thank gawd that limited character restriction was a pain when having conversations!

  • Metal_Man_v2

    iz rlly gud now my miiverse posts dnt hav 2 look like dis…

    But really, this is great. People have been asking for this since launch.

  • Dan

    Thank GOD! This has been my biggest annoyance, and I don’t even post all too often!

  • Madmagican

    It’s a nice improvement; I welcome it with open arms

  • val berger

    Hell has frozen! WoohooOOOOOoo

  • Gabrielsen


  • Jimmy D. Fugate

    Raise the amount of friends you can have from 100 to 500. Or at least 250.

    • tooby77

      i delete when friend havent been online for 1 month. no issue or u r just popular

    • Jon

      I never care about the friends on Mii verse, my friends are my own actual friends because really, there is not much else to having a million friends on Mii verse.

    • Christopher Acuna

      i’m good @ 100. 🙂

  • Thomas Vienna

    Alright! Now I don’t have to sit for 5 minutes figuring out what characters I don’t need to get my point across.
    To be honest, I had grown quite used to the 100 character limit. But 200 characters are still better, of course.

  • Christopher Acuna

    Now just drop that 5 minute wait to maybe 1 minute or 2 pls k thnx.

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      It is already 3

      • Christopher Acuna

        they dropped it to 3? When?

        • paddle008

          weeks ago, check the miiverse announcements community.

  • wober2

    I am so glad nintendo has been tweaking miiverse so often… My fear was they would set it and forget it.

  • Jack5221

    Glad they made this change. I would like it if they improved how we make drawings. Not sure how some people make such awesome drawings, my art is just terrible!

    • CharmanderRulz

      Well most artists like myself on Miiverse only push the drawing tools of a low res, no colour and darn simple art software because its so limited. For example artists found pixel pattens to make 7 main tones of grey but if we could just select grey tones wheres the skill in that?

  • A very welcome update. Next better drawing options right?

    • Nintyfan

      They should give us some colors!

      • Bob Charlie

        A free Miiverse drawing app is coming this summer. Hopefully it will be integrated in with Miiverse, instead of a stand alone app!

        • Nintyfan

          I believe it was Art Academy!

          • ICHI

            It was a portion of the new art academy but does anyone know if it has its own miiverse channel or if it can work on all of miiverse? Only working on one channel would make a lot of art disappear from the other games areas in miiverse.

  • ChiwawaBoi

    Yes yes yes!!! 😀

  • everyone

    I could see them making more changes after this. Kind of like the options people with swapnote on 3DS have with different colors and such.

  • Mochlum

    I’ve been waiting for this since I got the system! WOOHOO!

  • Justis Bistawros

    Sweet more space to draw fun things.

  • dubYA


  • Linskarmo

    I’ve found that most of my posts on Miiverse run just past 100 characters. I’m very glad they changed the limit, as deleting post sections was annoying.

  • Super Buu

    I like seeing the Wii U’s features grow and get better.

  • MetroidZero

    Now I can add punctuation! 😀

  • Ony

    Can’t wait to have an online pictotchat like the old Nin DS.

  • tooby77

    .travel to the moon is no issue, but unlimited dots is

  • Magnus Eriksson

    Colour for the drawings. Post videos. Own community for Virtual Conole (in general).

  • Jon

    finally, it is hard sometimes trying to fit everything you want to say in 100 characters 😛

  • bizzy gie

    Just made a full 200 character post on there like 3 minutes ago. Enjoying the elbow room.

  • felony211662

    Not really a miiverse update but I wish you could switch users when you push the home button and switch users from the top left corner

    • Smashninja22

      This is really not necessary what so ever. Your really just saying that because you see it on xbox

      • felony211662

        ^Troll for xbone

  • Johny

    uuuuff… like FINALLLY !!!! much better

  • kevin nun—-

    yes! now go for 300 characters.

  • Smashninja22

    We need Notifications for instant messages sent by friends and the ability for strangers to send you messages without adding you as a friend first. We also need to be able to form our own chat groups and in-game voice chat. Another thing Friends list and Wii U chat need to be unified with Miiverse

  • Inviable Gaming

    I wish I could use it I got bad for taking a screenshot from injustice where it had the words “Super man is f@#ked ” or something like that I didn’t even see that util they banned me for a month

    • Tim van Broekhoven

      I am banned forever…. I CAN’T USE IT

      • Inviable Gaming

        That must suck as soon as I got banned I thought I don’t need this crap then began to play ac3 and wanted to show off the glitches

  • Joey Perez

    Still want an app !!!!

  • kid robo

    sweet sayin all along on miiverse should put it to 200wrds. Time for proper discussions with ease 🙂
