    Ok, so I was watching a video on Game & Wario's Miiverse Sketch feature, and I for some unknown reason, am compelled to restore it. I don't have a Wii U, but if I could somehow make a server and anyone would want to test it out... I'm completely open for requests.

    I know Miiverse is just overall a joke to everyone, but I feel that it would be a fun project to try to restore (doesn't mean it would be easy though).

    PS: If anyone wants to do this, then it would be nice to know some good software to make a server for it. I'm new to Wii U and Nintendo Console Modding in general, so please forgive my noobyness (is that a word?). Just saying ;)

    You know, if we could restore it, it would probably be even more sweeter. No more strict rules to worry about.

    There's already 2 projects dedicated to doing this in the works - kaeru:verse and foxverse.

    They're not out yet.

    Yeah, but that doesn't mean that I couldn't try as well... (I do understand your point though)

    well if you wanted to restore it you should have been capturing packets since 2012. Then the encryption and protocols would have been known. then a emulator server could have been written that will be compatiable with miiverse app on the wii you and would just require a dns change for it to work.

    I always liked enabling it while playing new super mario bros. u. I liked to see others' progress. I remember one time, after beating a level, someone had drawn a penis with yoshi's tongue sticking out. I burst out laughing. ;) I bet that person was banned from miiverse. lol

    should I also mention that it was a hairy penis? :P

    Well, we could just make our own custom Miiverse server (that isn't exactly the same as the source), and we would just somehow redirect the Wii U to that server.

    I don't think this would be nearly as easy as it sounds. The server will need a lot of donations to stay up, but if this can be pulled off it will be pretty awesome.

    It sucks to see it go. The best Smash Brothers stage will never be the same.
