Nintendo’s grand debut in the mobile space is finally just about here: Miitomo. Basically, you make a Mii, customize its personality, dress it up, screw with its vocal pitch, and then send it off into the ether of the internet. It’ll ask you questions and then share your answers with your friends in some odd sort of attempt to help you get to know your friends better, I guess? It’s not a terribly ambitious concept, but it’s a free-to-play mobile game, so what are you gonna do?

Anyways, it
just hit Japan, and Nintendo’s gearing up to launch it worldwide, which means: launch trailer! Indeed, in anticipation of the imminent release of Miitomo, Nintendo’s uploaded a new trailer to the official Nintendo Mobile YouTube channel, showcasing Miitomo‘s premise and various mechanics. It’s in that same painfully vacant yet oddly intriguing aesthetic of the original Mii Channel on Wii, with breezily catchy music to back it up.

As for the literal release date,
the official website still doesn’t seem to say anything more than “March 2016,” though you can pre-register and score a few “My Nintendo points,” if you feel so inclined.

Look above to check out the launch trailer for
Miitomo, Nintendo’s first app.

Our Verdict

I write editorials here at Gamnesia and occasionally some news (though far less often than I used to). Here's some of my work, long-form game essays, if you have any interest in that sort of stuff: The Amount of Content in a Game Has Nothing to do with its Price A Game's Atmosphere is Defined by its Mechanics, Not its Aesthetic The Witcher 3's Introduction is Terribly Paced and Too Restrictive of its Players I'm looking forward to The Last Guardian (had it pre-ordered since 2010), Rime, Night in the Woods, and Vane. If I had a niche, it would probably be the somewhat higher fidelity indie games, as take up most of the spots on that list. I'm also developing a no-budget video game with a friend, and you can follow me on Twitter (@TheVioletBarry) to hear about that and anything else I feel like saying. Film, games, it's that sort of stuff.
