Earlier announced Nintendo’s movement into mobile gaming was received with some optimism and eye-rolling ‘finally’ reactions. Well, Japan’s Nintendo made a giant leap and has brought its first game to mobile. It’s entitled Miitomo and it’s free to play (of course with the occassional add-ons). And apparently its ‘thing’ is it allows the shy introverts
like myself who are reluctant to reveal things about themselves or talk to others.
There are four more planned smartphone games Nintendo is set to release by March 2017; the other titles will be paid downloads. So Miitomo (‘tomo’ translates as ‘friend’) will ultimately be the hook and sinker for people wanting to see what Nintendo mobile gaming is all about.
