Nintendo has released an update for Miiverse which prepared for the launch of the social network on 3DS next month.

The following changes to both the Wii U and web versions of Miiverse have been applied:

1. New display options in the community list: You can now display more communities at once, with the newest communities displayed first. You can also use a filter to display communities based on categories such as “Wii U software”, “Virtual Console” and so on.

2. A change to the profile page: Your profile no longer displays the total number of Yeahs you have given. However, you can still see the number of Yeahs on individual posts.

3. A change to the default display setting within a community: Until now, when you entered a community, the newest posts were displayed first. From now on, posts by people who have played the game will be displayed by default.

The update coming to 3Ds was announced during the latest Nintendo Direct, and the update will also add the ability to combine eShop balances on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

A Nintendo Network ID is required to use Miiverse on Nintendo 3DS, and for those who already have one, you can continue using the same ID on your Nintendo 3DS.
