Nintendo has announced the upcoming launch of the Check Mii Out Channel, a free downloadable from the WiiWare section of the Wii Shop channel, scheduled for November 11th. The new channel lets users show off their Mii character designs and view or vote on those others have made. In the channel's Posting Plaza, Wii users can browse other Miis by region, at random or by top-ranked favorite designs, and the Miis can be searched by creator name or Mii number. Users can tag their favorite Miis or import them to their own Wii systems. The channel will also feature themed contests, that challenges users to submit Mii designs that represent a specific person, character or concept. Users can then vote on Miis submitted by others to determine the Mii that best fits the challenge. The contests, according to Nintendo, will generally last two weeks, with the first week for submissions and the second half for votes. George Harrison, Nintendo of America senior VP of marketing, said, "The Check Mii Out Channel lets people show off their Mii creations and vote on those created by others. It's yet another way that we're building fun, interactive communities of Wii owners without charging them extra for the privilege."
