It’s quite sad to report this, but Miiverse, Nintendo’s quirky social media platform for both Wii U and 3DS will be ending in Japan on November 8th, and eventually globally. I think one of the major selling points of the Wii U was definitely the fact that the whole system felt so connected. You weren’t far from seeing other people’s posts, and works of art. Nintendo even added these elements to games to blend experiences while jumping in and out of games.

I felt this was more of an experiment for the company and they probably felt uncomfortable with the whole idea. Given how cautious their internet approaches have always been, this outcome I suppose was to be expected. Let’s hope Nintendo can warm up to online experiences beyond experimentation and fragmented projects.
