Miitomo Has Officially Launched in US

Nintendo’s first smartphone/tablet game, Miitomo, has officially launched in the US after an announcement was made just a few days ago by the company. The app has become very popular in Japan where the game initially launched, making it the #1 free app to download in the Japanese Google Play and App Store markets.

The countries where Miitomo is now available are as follows:

US, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Spain, and United Kingdom

Miitomo doesn’t feature any of the familiar faces like Super Mario we’ve all come to know and love, however it does feature the ever-so-popular Mii customizable characters found on the Wii and Nintendo DS counsels. Users can create their own Mii which will be used throughout the app. Once the initial signup and creation of your Mii is done, you’ll be able to chat with other users signed up for the application with them seeing any information you’ve decided to add to your Mii’s profile. Nintendo claims that your Mii one day will soon know more about you than you do yourself as you keep adding more and more information to it along with the messages you send to specific people.

“With Miitomo, Nintendo takes its first step into the world of smart devices,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “Miitomo brings the special Nintendo charm and polish that people around the world love to an entirely new format and audience.”

You can download Miitomo for free from the Play Store here and the App Store here.
