With news of Nintendo venturing into mobile gaming and the subsequent announcement of the social app game Miitomo, it was clear the gaming giant was entering a new phase that could potentially do wonders for the company.
Now Miitomo has finally been launched in Japan and the social game using the Mii character made famous by their WiiU consoles. Just in time after putting to rest that lawsuit, Nintendo.
Users can customize their Miis with different hairstyles, facial features, outfits, accessories and more. You then give your Mii a nickname, customize how it speaks, and choose its personality. Users can also create their Mii using a photo taken from their device’s camera.
An in-game shop lets you buy more items for your Mii, like new outfits to wear. And you’ll pay for the items with Miitomo coins, which you can either earn through game play or direct purchase.
After a bunch of NSA-esque questions posed to users like “Where did you go last weekend?” or “What tv show are you watching?” or “What was your most recent purchase,” the appbrings you into the wider gaming world to meets up with other Miis for socialising.
