GayGamer talks about Mii and Mii Plaza

Mii PlazaOver at GayGamer, we noticed a pretty good write-up of the functions of the Mii, Nintendo’s virtual avatars for your gaming fun. In fact, they not only explained what you can do with the Mii, but also took the time to feel giddy over making avatars.

First off, they explain the purpose of the Mii Plaza, which you can see above. The Mii Plaza acts like a central hub for all the avatars you’ve created, as well as the avatars you’ve picked up from friends who own Wiis.

You can store a total of 100 Wii avatars, by the way, so whether you make your own or wait for people to send you theirs is your choice.

Sending and receiving Miis is another cute feature. Creating a Mii avatar is essentially visualizing a permanent profile for each avatar, complete with allowances and restrictions for mingling and travel. Mingling denotes sending your avatars to other people, while travel refers to how you accept Miis into your Mii Parade. As the author explains of the service:

With the mingle feature on, if you send a Mii to another Wii, it will show up in the Mii Parade first. Then you can transfer that Mii to your Plaza, so it will show up in your various games. If you set the Mingle feature off, when you send it to another system, the Mii will appear first in the Mii Plaza.

In other words, your Mii avatars could be in the audience of a Wii Sports baseball game, or it could turn up as one of the players. Travel restrictions also affect whether you accept other gamers’ avatars into your Mii Parade, so you have to set that as well. Overall, definitely handy for getting kids to enjoy their games, and something interesting to do when you’re bored, at the very least, and it’s very cute.
