Nintendo’s first mobile game Miitomo launching next week

Back in January, Nintendo confirmed that its first mobile game – dubbed Miitomo – will launch in March. And now, the Japanese company has revealed the launch date: March 17, which is Thursday next week. The revelation was made in a Tweet.

The game was initially set to arrive at the end of the last year, but was delayed to March citing promotional reasons. Pre-registrations for the app began last month, and they’ll be closed on March 16, a day before the launch.

As we’ve already told you before, Miitomo doesn’t appear to be a game in true sense – it’s more of a chat app that allows users to create and customize their Miis, through which they interact with other users in real time.
