The channel was discontinued along with the Check Mii Out channel by Nintendo on June 28, as they moved on to other next-generation projects. When the freemium mobile app Miitomo launched on iOS and Android devices, it was possible for the first time to create Mii characters without the need for a Nintendo console.

The Mii Maker installed on the Nintendo 3DS can use facial recognition to generate a Mii, which selects facial features based on a photograph of a person's face taken with the system's cameras. On December 6, , the feature was updated to include SpotPass functionality, as well as new puzzle panels, a sequel to Find Mii, a map showing where players met other Miis, Accomplishments and a music player. If owners transfer them to another Wii or Wii Remote, they will be removed from their original location, instead of traditionally making another copy.

Retrieved April 25, Miis on the Nintendo 3DS can also be used in conjunction with the device's Augmented Reality software - the software includes a mini-app named 'Mii Pics' which allows the user to take a photo of their Mii within a regular photo, using an augmented reality card included with the system.
