Oh snap, it's official now, right out of my inbox: Miitomo Launches in the U.S. on March 31— John Ricciardi (@johntv) March 29, 2016
FINALLY! "Miitomo Launches in the U.S. on March 31" https://t.co/gzIA6REeZ1— brettman79 (@brettman79) March 29, 2016
Unlike a game like Super Mario or Donkey Kong, Miitomo allows users to create a Mii character and customize their looks or personality. Once the Mii is created, gamers can add friends within the game, or link it to their Facebook or Twitter accounts to find friends there.
There's also the ability to use the camera on your phone and take and share photos, using Miifoto in the app.
To get the app on your device, users need to first have a Nintendo account (no, Super Mario doesn't come over when you sign up) and go to https://miitomo.com before March 31 to receive an email when the app is ready to download.
Nintendo has said its next mobile game will feature one of its more popular characters, but hasn't gone into much detail about who (or what) that actually is.
