Heartbroken Nintendo fans share nostalgic memories on eve of Miiverse closure

I will remember you, will you remember me?

Millions of drawings and hilarious posts collected over the years by users of Nintendo’s Miiverse on the Wii U and 3DS are about to be deleted forever, and the community is in mourning.

The #MiiverseMemories hashtag sprung up on Twitter over the weekend, as users posted their favorite memories from time spent in Nintendo’s social network. Tweets in #MiiverseMemories showcase just how frivolous many of the drawings and posts on Miiverse came to be. Other Miiverse users chose to use a simpler #Miiverse hashtag or just post their artwork without any hashtag at all. It wasn’t so much how Miiverse users were sharing their memories, just that they were.

Miiverse was introduced in 2012 alongside the release of the Wii U. While it was intended to harbor safe, family friendly conversations for friends through the games they played, it soon became grounds for other types of shenanigans. Beyond the reminiscing of so-bad-it’s-good goofs on Miiverse, many people on Twitter created one last drawing, saying an emotional goodbye to the social network they spent years on, thankful for the friendships they developed.

Miiverse will shut down for good at 1 a.m. ET on Wednesday, Nov. 8. If you want to save your drawings and posts, Nintendo has a pretty detailed guide on how to do just that.
