With the news out-of-the-way that the first smartphone title from DeNA and Nintendo has been delayed until next year, we now know what the game is. It’s titled Miitomo and is free to play with microtransactions. The company’s other smartphone games will be pay-to-download. You can read more about the game, below.
The new smartphone game will be “Miitomo”. It will be free to play, with attractive add-ons that people can pay for, Mr. Kimishima says. Other smartphone games will be pay-to-download, he says.
Looks like Miis go ahead and communicate with other Miis without your knowledge. This will help people who are hesitant to talk about themselves to communicate with others, and reveal a side of your friends you never knew, Mr. Kimishima says.
In the new “Miitomo” game, users will design their own avatars, or “Miis,” to communicate with other users. Executive Shinya Takahashi says that Nintendo will find ways to encourage people who are hesitant to talk to share things about themselves.
Miitomo is the first of five smartphone apps that Nintendo plans to release by March 2017.
