Nintendo has officially announced today that they will be shutting down the Miiverse service for both 3DS and Wii U systems on November 7th 2017, 10pm Pacific time. Nintendo says that this is due to the rise of social media networks, like Facebook and Twitter.
Games that use Miiverse will also stop working, such as Super Mario Maker, Splatoon and Mario Kart 8. You can see the list of affected games here.
However you will be able to download your Miiverse posts after the service ends. To do this go to miiverse.nintendo.net and request post history. Additionally, Wii U chat will also stop working.
Have you ever used Miiverse on your Wii U/3DS system? Let us know in the comments.

If you are using online features on your Nintendo 3DS or Wii U system, you most likely have a Nintendo Network account. If you do it is strongly suggested you change your password now.
This month around 450 Nintendo Network accounts got hacked, and the full details of these accounts were posted online in a list. This means if anyone manages to find it that person can easily get into your account.
If you want to check if your account is affected, click here and use Ctrl+F on PC, cmd+F on Mac or the find feature on your mobile web browser to enter your Nintendo Network ID and see if you are in the list.
If you are in the list, it means your account has been compromised and you need to change your password. If you aren’t in the list, we still recommend you change your password.
You can do so via the System Settings on the 3DS and Wii U systems.
