Mii Studio Lets You Perfect Miis on PC

The great pastime of creating bizarre, artistic, monstrous, and sometimes frightening Miis has almost become a relic of the past. While the quirky avatars have been… polarizing fans since their inception on Wii, their heyday seems to have truly come and gone with the introduction of Switch. Fans can still create their own unique character to represent themselves on the platform, but Switch is largely devoid of Miis and hardly emphasizes them.

Oddly, despite this shift in focus, Nintendo doesn’t appear to be fully done with Miis. Indeed, the company is now making it easier than ever to create and edit them by allowing users to access a web service dubbed Mii Studio. It’s essentially the usual suite of Mii creation tools that are available on Wii, Wii U, 3DS, and Switch, but with some notable improvements.

For one thing, changes in Mii Studio will be recognized across all platforms that the account is active on. Meaning, if you’re using the same Mii/account on your Switch and 3DS, changes should be seen on both without having to manually make them on each system. Another addition that’s absent (so far) on consoles is the wider range of colors for hair and accessories. My Mii, for instance, is now sporting some killer green glasses! Glasses that I wish I owned in real life, dang it!

Sushi Striker Demo is Live in the eShop

Sushi Striker Demo is Live in the eShop

Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido is coming to Nintendo Switch and 3DS on June 8. The game has been mentioned in the last couple of Nintendo Direct broadcasts, but fans haven’t gotten to know much about the game beyond its press clippings and trailers. Thankfully, with this most recent update of the Switch eShop they can finally give Sushi Striker a real go, as a new demo has come to the console.

Unfortunately, while that gives Switch owners a taste of what’s to come, it does nothing for those who are planning to purchase Sushi Striker on 3DS. As of this writing, there’s no demo for or word of one coming to the 3DS eShop. There is the ability to pre-purchase the game on 3DS, however, so… yay? In fairness, the recent spate of software from Nintendo to do double-duty as both console and 3DS titles (Yoshi’s Wooly World, Super Mario Maker, Hyrule Warriors, etc.) haven’t been bad on the latter, so let’s hope Sushi Striker is similarly capable when it finally drops.

Make My MMO: Star Citizen’s Legatus pack offers 117 ships for $27,000 (May 26, 2018)

This week in MMO crowdfunding, Star Citizen’s crowdfunding reached new heights as Cloud Imperium posted the Legatus pack, a huge bundle pack that runs $27,000. That seems ridiculous, but it also includes a ridiculously huge number of ships – 117, in fact, with 163 extras (things like beacons, modules, posters, and additional models). If you’ve already got that much skin in...
