Nintendo’s first social media app, Miitomo, has officially launched worldwide on iOS and Android devices. Miitomo is more of an experience that you share with your friends instead of an actual video game. You can add friends that you are connected with on Facebook and Twitter so they can join your Mii character and get to know each other even more.Miitomo revolves around answering and asking questions, in simple terms. There’s so much more to it than meets the eye. You sync up your My Nintendo account to Miitomo and you will start earning points based on completion of certain “missions”. You’ll get points for commenting on one of your friends answers or liking their answers. For example, Miitomo will ask me what my favorite food is; other friends will see my answer and can then comment on the thread. You can edit the way that your Mii looks and sounds to your heart’s content.
There’s a clothing shop in the game that has tons of different styles of clothing to choose from. You can purchase things like bat wings, to rainbow-colored socks. The app uses in-game currency to purchase new items, but if you run low you can always use real world money to purchase currency in-game if need be. The more you change your clothing, your style level will increase. There is also a level for how many friends you have as well. The game encourages you to add as many friends as you can as well as discussing questions and answers.
Miifoto lets you put your Mii characters in whatever situation that you choose. The app has preset backgrounds to place your Mii in, or you can choose your own pictures from your phone gallery. Add text and stickers to your photos to make some hilarious pics that you can then share to Instagram or Facebook.
Miitomo has just launched and it’s already topping the charts in the app store and the play store. With Nintendo supporting the application, I’m sure that this free to play social app is headed in the right direction! Download Miitomo now!
