Nintendo has made a quiet announcement of changes to its MiiVerse terms of service. As reported by Aussie-Gamer, the service now disallows direct friend requests to or from users aged 12 or under.

A caveat for those considering setting their shiny new Wii U consoles on fire or throwing them out the window in search of YouTube fame and stardom: you may lose your Nintendo Network ID.
