Miiverse browser and smartphone support coming in May

Nintendo 3DS version in the works

Miiverse producer Kiyoshi Mizuki has confirmed the browser and mobile version of Nintendo's social network will launch in May.


In a GDC session covered by Polygon, Mizuki said the initial release will provide basic functionality such as commenting, drawing, and interacting with communities.

Mizuki also revealed that a 3DS version of Miiverse is in development at Nintendo, but didn't specify when it will be released. He indicated that, unlike with Wii U games, Miiverse support for 3DS titles may not be mandatory.

Company president Satoru Iwata announced upcoming browser and smartphone support for Miiverse during a Nintendo Direct press conference in January.
