Main article: Miiverse (social network)
Miiverse originated as an application for the Wii U in 2012 alongside the console's launch. Users used the application to make for-fun posts, report posts and comments, and follow and befriend other users. It was later made available on the Nintendo 3DS and web browsers in 2013, with largely similar features, and was discontinued in 2017.
The Miiverse universe is represented by a single stage in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
Elements from or in the Super Smash Bros. series
The Miiverse stage's green and white color scheme resembles the interface and color scheme of the social network. In addition, the concept of player-made drawings appearing on the stage is based on - and made possible by - the ability to post drawings or handwritten text on Miiverse using the GamePad or 3DS bottom screen.
Miiverse also featured several communities for Smash 4, including those for photo contests, in which users could submit images of the Photo Studio which match a certain theme. It also used to have a community representing the entire Super Smash Bros. series.
