Nintendo’s first Android app launches in March, and you can sign up for it later this month


We were quite excited when we first heard Nintendo was looking to jump into the mobile scene with apps and games. Their first app was revealed to be Miitomo, a social experience that uses Mii characters — the little guys you create for your profile on Nintendo devices — as a focal point.


Nintendo tries to talk it up big with the cool stuff you can talk about in Miitomo…

Using Mii characters users will be able to interact with their friends in an entirely new way to spark fun and interesting conversations 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?” By answering questions in Miitomo, users will be able to discover surprising information and secrets about their friends, as well as share their experiences with others easily by taking and sharing photos featuring their Mii using the Miifoto feature.

…but really, it’s just an instant messenger with Mii characters. You can use some of the default clothing and accessories for your Mii, but Nintendo will also presumably have in-app purchases to get more cool things.

If that’s the sort of thing that excites you, though, you’ll be happy to know that the service is launching this March, and you’ll be able to sign up for it starting February 17th. Those who pre-register for Miitomo will also get a bonus item, so there’s a bit of incentive for doing so. Swing back for the signup link once the aforementioned date arrives.

PS: Nintendo also says 4 more games and apps will be on tap by March 2017, so it’s going to be a jam-packed year for sure.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
