Iwata: Miiverse on PCs/Smartphones isn't too 'far away'

Nintendo doesn't have an exact release date for when Miiverse will be available on PCs and Smartphones (as an application) but does say that its release on those devices isn't too 'far away'. (Android, iPhone, Miiverse, Nintendo, PC, Wii U)

This would be very useful. I can send a message and see what is going on with Mii friends while on the go.

"My only concern is people who don’t own Wii U’s having access to the application and trolling the boards."

I agree! The only way to make one is with a Wii U, so I don't think people will purchase a Wii U just to troll from their phone. Hopefully Nintendo doesn't change that in the near future.

hopefully it will only be open to users with NNID.

or if they do want to cater to non-Wii U users, perhaps have an "open-for-public" limitations, but with restrictions.

i'm hoping they can also release an update for 3DS users to get it on the Miiverse craze.

The sooner the better, Miiverse will be a even bigger hit and get more popularity once wii u owners can accesses it through pc/smartphone

They gotta get it on 3DS too. I want friend codes to be a thing of the past.

I hope Nintendo doesn't do this. It would spell the end of Nintendo as we know it.

I'm all for this but I'd also like to see Miiverse fleshed-out a little into something more akin to a forum. As it stands, discussions can fall off the bottom of the Miiverse feed quite quickly and read similar to Twitter... It needs more levels of nested replies, the option to vote for stuff - things like that. Oh and the Voice Chat merged into it along with the friends list, why the hell is all that separate?
ElectricKaibutsu  +   703d ago
I agree. Basically the replies should work like N4G.

And when are you going to make the game console and the Nintendo Network ID independent, Nintendo?

So far, THAT is my biggest complain about my Wii U. It's absurd to have your ID locked to the console. If it dies on you, or it's stolen, then you lose not only the console, but the DLC and downloaded games, too. It's stupid, and I think Nintendo should adress that first, before anything else.
