I never owned a Wii U, but the Miiverse always seemed like a bizarrely quirky and cool place. While I held out some hope that the Switch would get something backported into it, Splatoon 2’s ersatz Miiverse indicates to me that, for whatever reason, Nintendo has either backed away from that entirely. Whether the Switch will get its own Miiverse or whether Nintendo prefers to direct us to other social media platforms instead (as it does now), it’s a shame that this is getting shut down.
Patrick’s dips into it as part of Mario Maker Mornings made it a regular feature of my life. So long, Miiverse, you bizarre thing.
