Nintendo - Miitomo press release for United States

Spark One-of-a-Kind Conversations with Friends; App Launches in March Alongside My Nintendo Rewards Program

REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nintendo’s first app made exclusively for smart devices, Miitomo, will launch in North America in March for both iOS and Android phones and tablets. Today, Nintendo outlined the steps that fans can take to be among the first to get in on the social fun.

Starting Feb. 17, people will be able to pre-register for Miitomo by signing up for the new Nintendo Account service using their existing email, social media accounts or current Nintendo Network IDs. People who pre-register will be among the first to be notified about the availability of Miitomo when it launches in March. Nintendo will offer a special Miitomo bonus to anyone who signs up for a Nintendo Account between Feb. 17 and launch. Miitomo is a social experience that uses Nintendo’s Mii characters, which first debuted on the Wii console, to engage friends in a lighthearted and welcoming environment. Users can spark fun conversations and learn more about each other by answering questions such as “What song has been stuck in your head lately?”, “Do you believe in aliens?”, or even “If you saw a nose hair sticking out of your friend’s nose, what would you do?” Users can also easily take and share photos featuring their Mii with the Miifoto feature. Nintendo’s new My Nintendo rewards program will launch alongside Miitomo in March, and will be able to connect with the app.

“Miitomo is a uniquely entertaining mobile experience that only Nintendo can deliver,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “Featuring Mii characters, users will be able to interact with their friends in an entirely new way that transforms communication into a form of play.”

Launching alongside Miitomo in March, My Nintendo aims to become much more than a traditional rewards program. It is a more comprehensive service that rewards users for interacting with Nintendo products and services in a variety of ways. Miitomo users with a Nintendo Account will be able to take advantage of My Nintendo to enhance their experience

Including Miitomo, Nintendo plans to relea

se approximately five smart device applications by the end of March 2017. More information about Miitomo, Nintendo Account and My Nintendo will be available on http://www.nintendo.com in the coming weeks.

Could be good despite it being a Mii game. But DeNA hasn't let me down yet, Record Keeper has been great.

Heck yes! Good thing I have iOS so I'll pre-register on the day! Yay! This month is great for those who are single. LOL XD just kidding.

Will download just for the points and delete.

Miitomo sounds pretty dumb but I'll still give it a try. At the very least gotta get signed up for the Nintendo account.

A superficial communications app featuring Mii's and likely useless microtransactions that will trick the weak lol. Canyoutellimexcited?

If not for the app itself, I'll get it at least for Nintendo Account and My Nintendo.

Sounds lame. I'll pass.
