[RUMOR] Miiverse Ending Soon

Post by Zero Revolution on Mon Jul 17, 2017 10:30 pm

While this seems to be pretty much set in stone I'm still marking it rumor just because Nintendo hasn't officially announced anything yet. It was found somewhere in the Wii U's system after the latest firmware update that this line of text was added:

"The Miiverse service has ended.
Miiverse and any software features
that make use of Miiverse are now
unavailable."

So this is really sad. Honestly I don't even really get why they're ending it. The Miis are still a pretty big part of Nintendo, what with Miitopia releasing THIS MONTH on 3DS, them being at the forefront of My Nintendo (granted, My Nintendo really sucks, but still) and they have even been upgraded slightly on Switch. It seems so strange that a pretty cool Nintendo social network is just ending after a pretty nice run on 3DS/Wii U.

Also this means a whole lot of games will have some of the life sucked out of them, especially Splatoon where the whole network of the game revolved around it. Yes Splatoon 2 is out soon and has its own kind of replacement for Miiverse just for Splatoon but still feels odd.

I can see this happening due to Miiverse coasting Nintendo money to keep open and it seems like the mods never kept it family friendly. With that said My Nintendo having that log into Miiverse weekly option makes me kind of doubt there getting rid of all together. Maybe they can add the snapshot button to the 3DS and Wii U as while as a small replacement?

I'm actually kind of surprised to say I will miss it. Granted the people in Miiverse weren't the best, but it was a place made by Nintendo specifically to talk about their games. You're not gonna get that with other social media. Also it's screenshot feature made it really easy to grab screenshots from games. It's gonna be depressing seeing a Miiverse button and knowing that it won't work ever again.

^ Yeah I really do feel like it was a way to bring the Nintendo community together that hadn't really been done before. I just think it'll feel like the Wii U is empty without it because the hardware is just so built on Miiverse, the first thing you see when booting it up is Miiverse posts. 3DS wouldn't be affected as much because it was a late addition and it wasn't really built on Miiverse, that was Wii U's whole thing and so many games that included it will now have features that don't even work.
