Good night sweet prince, and may flocks of crawling Metroids sing thee to thy rest.
Nintendo's first foray into social networking will pass away just before its fifth birthday.
Miiverse will be shutting down on November 8 at 1 a.m. Eastern time (10 p.m. November 7 Pacific time) according to the post on Miiverse and Nintendo's support site. Use of other social media platforms is being blamed for the dismissal, as well as Miiverse not supporting the Switch.
Details have been given on how the change will affect current Wii U and 3DS games, available here. Notably, Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. replays will no longer be available for upload, and Super Mario Maker levels will not receive comments.
