Miiverse (Miiverse, Miiverse) is a stage in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. It was revealed during the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U: 50-Fact Extravaganza on October 23rd, 2014, and added to the game in version 1.0.8 on June 14th, 2015.
Functionally, its layout is similar to Battlefield, though it is slightly wider, the platforms are longer, and the ceiling is slightly higher, giving it the highest ceiling among SSB4's legal stage list.
Selected messages created by users appear in the background, intended to cheer the fighters on. Users are able to post drawings for each character in dedicated Miiverse communities, which can then appear when that character is a participant in a match. The border color determines which character the post cheers for. During the results screen, players will have the option to send a post directly to Miiverse related to the character who won the match. This prompt occurs even if Miiverse is disabled on the system, but will not appear if playing with amiibo, seemingly due to the inability to suspend the game while amiibo are in use.
This stage is not available when playing against others online, making it the only stage with that restriction. When playing locally, this stage can be played even with the Wii U not connected to the Internet; doing so will simply cause no messages to appear.
Certain events will cause additional Miiverse posts to appear:
The Miiverse social network will be discontinued as of November 7, 2017; after that date, this stage will no longer have posts displayed in the background, and users will not be able to post new drawings to its communities.
The Omega form removes the thin platforms and resembles the Online Practice Stage. Miiverse posts still appear in the background as long as players are connected to Nintendo Network.
Miiverse is either considered legal as a purely cosmetic Battlefield alternative or banned due to its redundancy as a semi-clone of said stage. If the Wii U is not offline, the posts in the background can be distracting for players and may contain inappropriate material.
Miiverse's appearance is based on Miiverse's interface: they both feature a white and green color scheme, as well as a gray checkered background.
