Mii, DS, and I

October 14, 2006


So i was playing (and still am, now at 5:01 am) Clubhouse Games — the dopest Wifi game — and was wondering about the icon. For online, you pick a little avatar from a list– insects, faces, etc. You can unlock more, but there aren’t enough and they get redundant quick, not to mention almost all of them suck. The first thought that came to me was “They shoulda let people draw their faces, even though most would be cocks-and-balls.” Then, an epiphany…

Nintendo should make a DS firmware upgrade available that you can download through Wii’s Shop Channel so you can have Miis on your DS.  I mean, it’s only the greatest thing to ever happen with cross-game customization. Wherever you go, your Mii will be there. Whatever game you play, your Mii is handy. In Wii games where you use the DS as a controller, the DS Mii can interact with your Wii Miis. And like the Miis that travel in your remote, your DS Miis are always with you– except in a much more plausible fashion than carrying around that remote.

DS has onboard memory that’s currently only used for Wifi settings, i’m sure they can cram a little 2D incarnation of yourself on there (even if it’s limited to one per system), maybe consolidate the info options in the menu about your name and birthday with your Mii as one entity. Developers could actually save money/time by making all the gameplay elements and features minus the hassle of character creation/modelling. Some games could even render your Miis in 3D.

Hey, if that guy with the Flash program can make Miis that look as good as the Wii ones, only flat, we have some untapped potential here. I sincerely hope i’m not the first to think of this, including Nintendo. If so, there’s a problem.

Internets, start your petitions.

    i actually saw something from nintendo about this… they actually developed the mii system for the ds but due to some problem or the other they couldn’t get it perfect by release date. They ended up continuing the project and extending it to what it is now on the wii. This is “a” reference link but not “the” one i had originally seen
