Nintendo Japan Plans To Shut Down Miiverse In November

Miiverse

Looking ahead, Nintendo would rather you just forget the Wii U ever existed, and it's going to help bury that awful memory by killing off the Miiverse social network which was born on the troubled console and never managed to catch much traction.

Below is an example of how games with Miiverse functionality will be affected.

At 6AM GMT on November 8, Miiverse will officially close. Maybe it's for the best - we suspect Nintendo spent a lot of time moderating the Miiverse for inappropriate scrawls every day.

Unfortunately, Miiverse never really morphed into what Nintendo had hoped for. You will need to have a linked Nintendo Account, and you will need to submit your request for the post history before the service ends. Notably, Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. replays will no longer be available for upload, and Super Mario Maker levels will not receive comments.

I for one used Miiverse as a way to take screen shots from my game to share not only on Miiverse but also on other social media. Once the service goes offline, Wii U and 3DS owners will be met with error codes. As there will be a limit to the number of Stars that can be obtained, not all objects may be unlocked from the Workshop.

Augmented Reality Apps Will Change the Way You Use Your Phone
A preview release of Google's ARcore SDK is available now, but it presently works on only three devices. Google wants to make it easy for Android apps to feature augmented reality technology.

Players can preserve their post by heading over to the Miiverse website and register ahead of the end date.

The weird and wonderful platform launched five years ago, and let players share written or hand-drawn messages and game tips across the Wii U and 3DS - resulting in some predictably freakish interactions. Players will also be unable to post replays to YouTube/Miiverse, share stages or create tournaments.

There is now no word on what online functionality for the 3DS systems will look like moving forward, but we'll keep you posted. Follow this link to find out how to download and save your old Miiverse posts.
