Wii U Miiverse Smartphone Apps Coming Soon

Wii U Miiverse Smartphone Apps Coming Soon

Let’s be honest here, Miiverse on the Wii U has slowly but definitely come a long way; from its steady updates since its launch date which has allowed longer messages to be posted, the sharing of posts to external networks such as Twitter and Facebook, and perhaps most importantly the launch of a web version which has included all of the features of the Wii U app. Those two services combined have assisted in bringing Wii U gamers together in communities for dozens of games and services, and is clearly a major part of Nintendo’s strategy for growing the platform.

While Nintendo’s previously confirmed that Miiverse will come to the 3DS;  whilst speaking at an eShop presentation at The Indie Games Collective event at the UKIE HQ in London, Nintendo of Europe’s Business Development Manager, Ed Valiente, proclaimed the Miiverse apps will be released in the future for smartphones, instead of simply relying on the browser service. If and when this comes to pass, do you think the Wii U will be competition for other consoles?
