Nintendo launching Mii voting channel on November 11

The new feature will be available as a free download

Nintendo on Thursday said it will introduce an interactive Wii channel to let users upload, view, and vote on the best Mii creations.

The new feature will be available as a free download from the Wii Shop Channel beginning Nov. 11 and will give Wii owners the opportunity to submit, browse, and vote on bi-monthly popularity contests.

"The Check Mii Out Channel lets people show off their Mii creations and vote on those created by others," said Nintendo's outgoing marketing president, George Harrison. "It's yet another way that we're building fun, interactive communities of Wii owners without charging them extra for the privilege."
