In a recent Game Developers Conference (GDC) presentation given by Miiverse producer Kiyoshi Mizuki, Miiverse Mobile for smartphones and Miiverse for PC Web browsers has been confirmed for an April/ May release. While Kiyoshi-san mentioned that the 3DS version of Miiverse will come at a later date, he did not share any specific details.

Initially, the Miiverse mobile app and Miiverse Web browser will provide users with basic functions — much how the initial release of Miiverse for Wii U provided ways to comment, draw pictures, and participate in online Miiverse communities. Over time, additional software updates will give users more options to interact.

It sounds like a weaker version of Nintendo Nerds. :P
I am glad that this finally has a better time frame. More ways to access Miiverse will be the key to its success. Well that and more games and communities to post in. :)
By "mobile app" do they mean distribution through the App store or Google Play, or the MiiVerse website has a custom view tailored to phones and tablets when accessed by a mobile browser?

That's a great question, Kyle! I can definitely see how something like this can be misleading to the consumer.

Personally, I feel that the Miiverse "application" (as in the interface) itself will be a web portal where members log in with their existing Nintendo Network ID (NNID) and password. It'll be a mobile version of the Miiverse interface that's accessed via URL, similar to how we'll all be able to access Miiverse from a PC Web browser.

Great question!
I think it sounds interesting.
