No Mii birthdays on Wii


Birthday boy Scott at was anticipating a celebration of his birth like none ever experienced before.

At the very least, I expected my Mii to be wearing a party hat. In my most grandiose expectations, however, I imagined that when the player entered the Mii Channel, the birthday Mii would be front-and-center, and all the other Mii’s would be throwing confetti, jumping up and down, and singing “Happy Birthday.”

Bummer. I was sort of hoping for the same thing myself. Happy birthday, anyway!

So why do you think Nintendo has you create a birth date for your Mii?
