Seemingly out of nowhere, firmware update 5.5.2 is now available for download on Wii U systems. Nintendo’s patch notes on the update include: “further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience”, but it’s now been discovered that it may have evidence that suggests the end of Miiverse.
Text within the update was found that states “The Miiverse service has ended. Miiverse and any software features that make use of Miiverse are now unavailable”. While Miiverse is still live currently, it seems as though Nintendo’s social media platform is coming to an end soon.
