Miiverse is a downloadable stage in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. It is based on the social-media network for the Wii U console and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. It was released for free in a Patch Update on June 14, 2015. The main purpose of the stage was to have posts from Miiverse appear in the background of the stage during battle. On November 7, 2017, Nintendo discontinued the Miiverse social network. As a result, the stage contains no Miiverse posts in the background.
The stage has a similar layout to the Battlefield stage, with only three floating platforms.
Messages used to appear as the battle progresses, in the end they will appear very shortly. When a player KOs the opponent, a message cheering the player would have showed up, but if the player uses a Meteor Smash KO, two messages cheering the character would have showed up. Sometimes the messages might cheer the opponent that got KO'd rather than the one who did it.
The messages were created by the fans on the Miiverse site, and there was a page for each character where anyone could submit drawings and messages for them. The messages would then appear in random matches.
The Miiverse Stage was known for containing inappropriate, irrelevant, or unsupportive posts made by people until the discontinuation of Miiverse.
