Nintendo is Killing Miiverse in Japan This November

first_img As the old saying goes: “All good things must come to an end.” Nintendo has officially announced that Miiverse will be killed off in Japan this November. Wii U’s social network made its debut when the ill-fated Nintendo console launched in the country on December 8, 2012. We already paid our respects to Nintendo’s beautiful and awful social network when it was clear it wouldn’t be making the jump to the new Nintendo Switch, but after November 8 of this year it’s official. Miiverse will be as dead as the system that spawned it.This was officially announced by Nintendo on their Japanese site. In addition to Wiiverse, Wii U’s chat app and TVii television service will also come to an end on November 8. Once the service goes offline, Wii U and 3DS owners will be met with error codes. After Miiverse is no more, features related to the service on specific games will cease to work. This will affect 70 Wii U games and 20 3DS games in Japan.Below is an example of how games with Miiverse functionality will be affected.Nintendo stated it will allow users to download their own posts via the Miiverse website. That’s certainly good new for users since some of the posts were rather clever. A Twitter account called BadMiiversePosts regularly tweets out bad (and good) Miiverse posts. It is worth checking out if you’re a fan of Miiverse or are curious about the types of posts Wii U owners made. Follow this link to find out how to download and save your old Miiverse posts.Nintendo hasn’t given any official word on when Miiverse will be terminated in other regions, but it is only a matter of time. The Switch doesn’t have Miiverse so it makes sense Nintendo would kill the service off. There’s no telling if Nintendo will have a replacement for its social network, but it’s also entirely possible the Japanese gaming giant no longer feels the need to have such a feature in place.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
