Nintendo Releases Miitomo For iOS And Android

As part of Nintendo's strategy to expand into the smartphone market, the company just released its first piece of smartphone software: Miitomo.

Miitomo isn't exactly a game, functioning more like a social networking service. It closely resembles Miiverse on Nintendo's current game consoles, but with a few extra features. Instead of being limited to your virtual mini-Mii, you can decorate your character with a variety of costumes and accessories. You can then chat and interact with your friends in a wide number of locations.

Nintendo designed Miitomo to help spur conversations by programming your Mii to periodically ask you questions about yourself. It then shares your answers with your friends, which opens the door to a new discussion.

Although this is Nintendo's first piece of smartphone software to come from its partnership with DeNA, Nintendo plans to release more software and games for users over the course of this year. Miitomo is available now for iOS and Android.

    The emulators are always a bit buggy. And I feel a little bad not giving Nintendo money.
