Miiverse Arrives On Smartphones And Web Browsers By May

miiverse_smartphoneMiiverse is still scheduled to arrive this year on web browsers and smartphones, and it should be available on those two mediums within the next couple months. During a talk at the Game Developers Conference, Miiverse producer Kiyoshi Mizuki said that Nintendo’s social network should become browsable by May via mobile devices and a web browser application. At first, Miiverse on web browsers and smartphones will provide basic functionality, including posting comments, doodling, viewing posts and participating in communities. Mizuki confirmed that Miiverse is still in development for Nintendo 3DS; however, he didn’t share when that version will be released.

    1. LOL, I remember Reggie saying Nintendo would NEVER lower themselves to cheap apps on phones. Don’t believe me? Google it. Lmfao ,fucking sellout low class sluts. Most all of their needlessly overpriced & same play games resemble games on phones anyway.

      1. This isn’t a cheap app on the phone. From what I understand it’s free and will be really useful. What Reggie meant by that is Nintendo wouldn’t develop cheap games just for the sake of putting them on mobile devices and having them sell millions but lack the usual Nintendo quality.

          1. An app for a community and an app for a video game are two different things, Troll.
            Nintendo’s stance is that they’ll never be sending one of their own games onto a phone as an app game.
            Do your research before you open your mouth.

              1. Oh, and if you really want to play that whole hypocrisy game, come back AFTER you’ve berated Sony for showing off so many social applications after swearing they were going to focus less on them with the PS4.
                Trolls will always come here to downplay and bash, but not once have any of you ever had a point worth acknowledging.

  1. Weird how they make a app for phones but not their own handheld!. It might be coming but still, it’s hitting smart phones first!

    1. It’s a bit more complicated than that, whilst the app version will just be like a Facebook kinda app (as in basic posts, drawing, groups etc). The 3ds version will most likely be the same as on the WiiU, this will mean it should integrate with 3ds game as well, requiring a bit more time to implement. Especially if Nintendo wants to integrate all games that have been released up to now, that software will need some sort of update/patch to work with it.

        1. That makes no sense. Why would they integrate the 3DS with Miiverse just so we could write in Wii U communities? I’m sure they want Miiverse to encompass games released across all platforms.

  2. Looks like Nintendo is going all out for indie devs

    I hope this means ALL smart phone devices, unlike battlelog for BF3. I hope their online store gets just as good as steam, just purchased Just Cause 2, terraria and amnesia for $10, saved quite a bit.

    1. I mean, some games just don’t come to the Wii U. That’s life. Games will come and go, but it doesn’t really matter, bro, a lot of us just go with the flow.

      1. At least you are to give a half decent reply. Unlike the other idiots with their generic “you have no life cause you have a different opinion than me” or fanboys saying they’ve played a game when they haven’t.

        1. It’s a shame, but not a deal breaker.
          If Bioshock Infinity is an improvement, I’ll get it for PS3, but the Wii U is getting its own great titles in the near future.
          Honestly, I don’t know why so many people bash the Wii U’s lineup for so many shallow reasons….[not pointing fingers, just saying in general]

          1. BioShock Infinity? BioShock Infinite. You should definately get it for your PS3, it’s a HUGE improvement and has breathed new life into the often dull FPS genre.

            1. I sincerely doubt it’s done as much as that.
              But I do expect it to be at least as good if not better than the second Bioshock, which I immensely enjoyed.
              I dunno, I just have a lot of trepidation towards sequels. I rarely see a series of any sort go 3 iterations without some sort of goof up somewhere.

              This time around, it’s my fear that I’ll have to play babysitter to the main heroine, the one with the freaky power that looks like time warping.

        2. Look at your comment dude “Are you guys enjoying the amazing BioShock Infinite on your Wii U… Oh wait! XD” It’s funny how you say “Unlike the other idiots with their generic “you have no life cause you have a different opinion than me” Looks like a troll with no life to me! And then you put at the end “XD” and your surprised you get comments like “no life”? Hahaha wow!!

        1. Why is it surprising that someone beat a 4 hour long game that was leaked on the internet a week ago? I pirated and finished it days ago and it only took me a few hours. Uninstalled it right after, not up to par with the rest of my game collection.

      1. And you only think it’s alright? I’m thinking you’re either a butthurt Nintendrone or you haven’t actually played the game at all.

            1. Well, you can “beat” a games like skyrim, fallouts and gta’s less than 8 hours easy, if you dont aim to 100% it, and do everything it has to offer, and some games just dont interest people enough to 100% them.

  3. This will be extremely handy for me since college sucks up most of my life and I never can get on my Wii U or 3DS. At least now I can browse Miiverse and see what all my gaming friends are up to.

  4. Putting Miiverse on PC and Smartphones should be the last thing they do. Much more important is to get it on 3DS! I will probably never use Miiverse through anything else than the Wii U and eventually the 3DS. Can’t see any use of it.

    1. Planning multiplayer runs, for example. Maybe screen-capturing outstanding drawings, i dunno. I think more access will lead to more different ways to use it.

      1. I just pray the what ever deity is currently popular, that they do not let people register in with smartphones.
        Just with 3ds we will get enough Wii U haters to make miiverse uncomfortable.

        1. I’m quite positive you’re gonna need a Nintendo Network user whatsoever, and I can’t see why they would allow you to create one without having a Nintendo system.
          But you’re right, they better be cautious on this aspect, or else MiiVerse could rapidly shift from “very nice place with lots of people who share their love for Nintendo” to, well IGN’s comment section…

  5. Great! I can’t wait for the 3DS version of Miiverse. I’m sure we’ll be able to open the application while gaming just like on WiiU, post screenshots and drawings. It’s gonna solve all the problems to get conected online with a friend, I hope it comes before smash brothers. :D

      that i don’t think that will happen since i think it will be its own app. there no way you can run two app at once for 3ds….except the browser.

      1. But isn’t the miiverse on WiiU also browser powered? It’s an HTM5 App.

        I’m sure Nintendo will figure it out, It won’t disapoint me if it’s just like the swap-note, but I think that if they want it to be a game supporter platform, then it has to run while we are gaming.
