Just a day after announcing some new features for Miiverse, Nintendo’s Wii U social network service has developed an annoying bug for European users.

Those wanting to reply to a post on Miiverse are unable to select the “text” option, meaning the only way to reply to a comment at the moment is to do so using handwriting. It wouldn’t be much of a problem if we all had flawless calligraphy skills, right?

The good news is that Miiverse is actually a website, and the Miiverse Application is actually a custom-built web browser. This means we don’t have to wait for a patch to come out; the Miiverse administrators can fix it up on the fly with minimal delay.

Still, it’s worth bringing up since more and more games are being released, and more and more titles are begging people to boot up Miiverse. The latest to hit Wii U’s eShop is Tecmo Koei’s Fists of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2.

Speaking of Miiverse, it seems Wii U owners are taking to the service to vent rage over the Rayman Legends delay, which is even trending on Twitter. Almost every community is being littered with posts about Ubisoft and Rayman Legends. It’s fair to point out that such behaviour is against the Miiverse Code of Conduct, but something tells me those protesting don’t really care.

We’re sure Nintendo will quickly fix up the Miiverse bug, and will keep you updated as news progresses.


As predicted, Nintendo were quick to fix up this little bug and users can now comment with either the text or the handwriting option.
