Nintendo’s Miitomo Smartphone App begins pre-registration

At one time Nintendo led the world in video game entertainment, but in recent years they have been feeling left behind despite the success of the Nintendo Wii. Then came last October… when Nintendo announced details for the launch of its first smartphone device app entitled: Miitomo. Anticipation began to build and questions and rumours were abundant!

It has now been confirmed that the app will launch for iOS and Android devices in North America this March, with pre-registration set to kick off on February 17th 2016.

Those who want to pre-register will need to sign up for the new Nintendo Account service with their email, social media accounts, or Nintendo Network IDs. They will then be notified when Miitomo launches in March, and anyone who signs up between February 17th 2016 and the launch date will get a special Miitomo bonus.

Here’s how Nintendo describes Miitomo:

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.

Nintendo will also launch the My Nintendo rewards program in March, aiming to offer a “more comprehensive service that rewards users for interacting with Nintendo products and services in a variety of ways.”

Nintendo plans to release approximately five smart device apps, including Miitomo, by the end of March 2017.
