Nintendo has announced that their upcoming mobile game, Miitomo, will be pushed back to a March 2016 release date. Miitomo is a communication app, featuring the player as their Mii. Upon creation, the app will ask the player a series of questions to get to know them better, after which that information will be sent to other Miis around the world. However, this communication will apparently be unknown to the player, possibly to foster communication between the game’s shyer players.
Miitomo‘s release will also see the rise of Nintendo’s new account system, My Nintendo, which will replace Club Nintendo. No other concrete news has been released by Nintendo concerning their new mobile game, although from screenshots that have been released, like the one below, it does look like a “multiplayer” type of game.
Miitomo will be free-to-start, but will contain in-game purchase opportunities unlike Nintendo’s forecasted four mobile games to be released by March 2017, which will need to be purchased.
