I'm really going to miss Miiverse. The innocent enthusiasm from most communities I visited was a joy to see, especially for games that wouldn't draw much attention or discussion on typical game forums.

I heard about the whole datamining thing, but has Nintendo made an official announcement that Miiverse is ending? If so, is it just for the Wii U, or the 3DS as well? A few people on Miiverse claim that Nintendo has denied the rumors, but nobody has offered proof, and I can't find it with a Google search, either. Come on, Nintendo, we need clarification on this.

Nintendo has nothing to report. We have no idea what the future holds for Miiverse, only that somewhere within it a harbinger of doom lies dormant.

Miiverse is Twitter from a dumber but happier universe. When someone posts a dumb tweet, you think, "Wow, what a horrible person." When someone posts a dumb Miiverse post, you think, "Wow, what an adorable person."

Aside from the datamining from the latest Wii U update, there has been no official announcement from Nintendo that it would be ending yet. And if it was going to end, it would likely be for both platforms and presumably the PC website as well. The whole thing, basically. Given that the 3DS has at least another year of support left in it, Miiverse has at least that long to stick around.

It would be nice if an archive was kept up like the Animal Crossing Plaza on Wii U.

This is beautiful and true.

If nothing else, it was nice to have a game community that actively gatekept the worst dregs of this hobby

Also being able to ask really granular game help questions and actually get responses on social media was really nice.
