Nintendo to end Miiverse this November


We knew this had to happen someday but Nintendo’s flawed but amusing social network service, Miiverse, will close this November. All versions of the app, Wii U/3DS/PC, will no longer be active and will disappear.

The “Y CAN’T METROID CRAWL” meme will forever be lost to gaming history. The service originally launched on the Wii U in November 2012 and survived five full years. It was a bold move by Nintendo that added value and humor to games that had Miiverse functionality. Sadly, its associated with the Mii and Wii brands that Nintendo is distancing themselves from with the Switch so they will not bring the service to their new home console.

Goodbye Miiverse!
