Nintendo opened a new community in Miiverse today called Camp Miiverse. This new community allows players to participate in events that occur across the entire Miiverse, similar to how Steam has community events during its Steam summer sale. Anyone is welcome to join the festivities provided they have the games that will be featuring in each of the challenges as they’re announced. Here’s the official announcement:
“Starting today for the next few weeks, we’ll be hosting gaming events that will span across Miiverse! Anyone can join as long as you have the games we’ll be playing. How it works: CHECK OUT our post where we’ll announce each day’s activity. We’ll post it right here in Camp Miiverse. PLAY the game! Try to beat our challenge! POST your screenshot proving you beat our challenge in THAT GAME’S COMMUNITY. Over there! Not here! RESULTS will be posted the next day. Events will generally be held every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. For Mondays and Wednesdays you’ll have all day to play, and events held on Fridays will run all weekend long.”
It’s nice to see Nintendo actively engage the Miiverse community, as it’s a great way to keep players interested in their console, especially considering neither the Xbox One or the PlayStation 4 have global communities dedicated to their games on the system.
