Speaking at the Indie Games Collective event at the UKIE HQ in London, Nintendo of Europe’s Business Development Manager, Ed Valiente announced that the Miiverse would be arriving in the near future on Nintendo’s own 3DS console. In addition, Valiente revealed that Nintendo has plans to eventually launch special Miiverse apps for smartphones so that Nintendo fans will have more ways to connect than ever on their mobile devices.
Although there have been rumors of this announcement for a couple of months now, the news from the Indie Games Collective is the first official word from Nintendo. With cross-platforming of 3DS and Wii U already taking place through gaming (Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate) and features (Animal Crossing Plaza), Nintendo seems to be making more and more strides to link the two systems together. No official date has been given for the 3DS version of Miiverse, but players can more than likely expect it before the end of the year.
