Nintendo’s Miiverse gets mobile access, web interface

The Wii U from Nintendo contains an integrated social network system called Miiverse. Miiverse, which allows users to chat with one another through text, share gameplay hints, is directly integrated into the Wii U’s system menu.

Now, Nintendo it taking it to next level by launching a web portal. Wii U users can login to using their initial login and access their Miiverse activity feed, user menu, notifications and communities. Nintendo Network ID created on the Wii U is what is required for the web version on Miiverse.

As of now, the features are limited though (beta expereince as per Nintendo) e.g. at the moment you can not create new threads although you can “like” existing ones. Using Miiverse, users can share their achievements in supported games.
