The app launched in Japan a few weeks ago and has already passed 1 million downloads along with reaching the top spot on both the Apple and Android app stores. Miitomo is a free to start app that lets you connect with your friends in ways you might never have considered.
To start players will just need to create their Mii or import one from their Nintendo Network account. Once their Mii is ready, users can add friends who already have the app in person, or by linking the app with their existing Facebook or Twitter accounts. After that step is complete, it’s time to answer some questions! Miitomo creates conversations and turns discussions into a form of play by prompting users to answer all kinds of fun questions. How would you define your fashion style? What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten? If you were given ten grand to spend in one day, what would you do? The answers get shared among friends, sparking interesting conversations – part of the fun is discovering unexpected facts about your friends. When users hear how their friends respond to questions, they can give answers, a “heart” or a written or picture comment.
