Nintendo to close Miiverse social network

Nintendo has announced that its Miiverse social network will be closed down on 8 November. Miiverse was launched in 2012 alongside the Wii U games console and could be accessed on the 3DS, but did not appear on the new Nintendo Switch. The social network was notable for the detailed hand-drawn images that were shared by artistic gamers, which would appear within popular titles.

Splatoon will no longer show Miiverse drawings in the game menus or within battle stages.
