    Damn, as much as I didn't care for Miiverse as far as Wii U goes, I did use it at times on 3DS to take screenshots.

    I think they should just let SMM die already. Or they should make a less terrible version on the switch.

    As much as Miiverse was a novelty, seeing it killing off a lot of gameplay features isn't good. The admins were bad and you easily got warned, but it just isn't the same as Facebook or Twitter. I at least hope someone can provide a service to bring back MK8 and Smash tournaments and everything else, like with Nintendo WFC and WiiConnect24.

    I always loved seeing people draw some damn good drawings; all showing love and support for the said game. It's so sad that this had to be. If the Switch had MiiVerse, it would most likely be a different story.

    Both the 3ds and WiiU versions or just the WiiU version?

    I think the main problem was that they made a social network that is exclusively used by Nintendo gamers that use either a 3DS or a Wii U, the network just never worked on the 3DS and the Wii U was unsuccessful. It's a great idea but I don't think it'll ever work because of how small its userbase will be regardless of what console it's released on.

    Since miiverse will be down, guess there is no point for Smash Switch either.

    They see no point in continuing the service, it is barely used on 3DS and the Wii U has been left to rot.

    Damn Nintendo, even if I never was a huge user at Miiverse, but why my XBOX 360 & PS3 is still supported by their "creators". I know that Wii U is like ugly deformed child locked in the basement for them, but i think that 3DS will be going to bye bye and abandon like Wii did.

    They could change Miiverse in a way that users are only able to see content their friends have posted (+give the option to see everything via parental control or sth like that). That way moderators would not be necessary. Or: Only see friends' content + an open community without moderation.

    They could at least patch some games so that we could still upload Smash videos to youtube (miiverse sharing is only asked after the youtube upload anyway!), but it is Nintendo, after all.

    It's because pedophiles were using it.
