MiiVerse Says Farewell

Nintendo has today confirmed the end of the community feature that was promoted heavily during the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo Wii U’s lifetime. MiiVerse was a way for the community to gather together and say random things to one another while waiting for that next big AAA game to release. It was, some would say, the Nintendo fan base at its best.

All things must come to an end though, and today the MiiVerse is no more. This will come as no surprise to those that avidly used the service however, with news breaking a month ago that the MiiVerse was getting shut down. However, in one final breath of air, Nintendo has released a thank you image made up of handwritten posts from the MiiVerse Universe.

As the popularity of the Wii and Wii U generation withered, so did the community side of things, however with the new Nintendo Switch performing above everyone’s expectations, Nintendo is looking to the current and the future to solidify a new community service. What this is however remains to be seen, but make sure you check back at Rocket Chainsaw regularly as we’ll have all the latest Nintendo Switch announcements as we get them.
