As promised earlier this year, Nintendo’s Miiverse is now available via desktop and mobile web browsers.
Currently, the web version of Miiverse – the social gaming network introduced last year with the Wii U – is in beta testing, and has restricted access to features. The full list of unavailable features can be seen below, courtesy of Nintendo’s Q&A:
- Making new posts in a community
- Handwritten posts and comments
- Sending and receiving messages
- Sending and receiving friend requests
- Following/Unfollowing users
- Editing profiles
In addition, Nintendo Network IDs can still only be created on a Wii U console, and users without IDs can only view the most popular posts rather than all of them at this time. It is currently unknown as to whether or not Nintendo will allow people to register for NNIDs without a Wii U in the future, be it online or via the upcoming Nintendo 3DS edition of Miiverse, which is scheduled for release later this year.
Do you have a Nintendo Network ID? Do you plan to take advantage of this new window into Miiverse? Do you think it could be implemented better? Let us know your thoughts on the web version in the comments below.
