One person is trying to preserve the entirety of Miiverse

Miiverse

The end of Miiverse is quickly drawing near. Once November rolls in, the social networking service will be no more. A bunch of games will be impacted by its closure, but the community itself will also be shuttered.

Nintendo is allowing members to save their own posts. Miiverse as we know it will be gone, however. So what will happen to all of the lovely artwork and user posts created over the years?

Well, one person is trying to preserve it all. Twitter user Drastic Actions has created a program that is currently in the process of archiving everything.

Here’s a look at what’s been done so far:


So thankfully, Miiverse won’t be entirely lost to time. All of the art – and eventually posts – should be archived for everyone to see in the future.

    I can only imagine how all this stuff is going to be published. And since Nintendo owns all content posted to Miiverse, there’s no telling what’s going to happen once it does.

      Follow the rabbit hole; start with https://github.com/drasticactions/miiversearchive and read the shown readme, then get on the IRC and chat away.

    intresting ! The art work on Miiverse was and always be inspirational to me. It made me laugh, cry and most of all communicate and express sincerity more as such. XoX0 MIIVERSE #RIP (glad to see it WILL go on in a sense)…. it’s time to Switch if you haven’t already !

    I love that we have people dedicated to achiving this stuff. I can’t say that I’ve used Mii Verse exessively. I’ve aways treated it more like a gaming diary, but I’m sad to see it go. It was nice to have a nintendo gaming focused community.

    Fan dedication is amazing.

    That’s one good person, that person.

    Holy cow, he’s got 57,000 posts just from Splatoon for the last 2 months? Imagine going back 3 years! Now imagine doing that for the hundreds of games on Miiverse!

    Probably 1 million+ Splatoon posts alone. And with the other games, I’m guessing at least 50-75 million posts that need to be archived. There’s probably 2 dozen games that have a truckload of posts, and the rest will have far less.
