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. Younger players can still make friends by swapping Nintendo Network IDs, a move Nintendo says it hopes will “encourage younger users to make friends on Wii U only if they are friends in real life”.
