During today’s Nintendo investor meeting, the company has announced its first official game into the mobile gaming market (cell phone mobile gaming market that is). Miitomo is the first of five smartphone apps that Nintendo plans to release by March 2017. In the new Miitomo game, users will design their own avatars, or “Miis,” to communicate with other users. Executive Shinya Takahashi says that Nintendo will find ways to encourage people who are hesitant to talk to share things about themselves. The newly announced game will be free-to-play.
The company has also stated that its first games will release in 2016 and not year’s end. Sounds pretty interesting.
