It would’t be a Nintendo reveal without some choice words from everyone’s favourite video game analyst Michael Pachter. This time he has weighed in on Nintendo’s first mobile title Miitomo which is coming next March on mobile platforms. Pachter clearly isn’t impressed about what’s been revealed so far.
“I think this is a disaster. This is not a game. It’s a social network concept. Facebook is a robust social network. I don’t need Nintendo to give me a cartoon version of myself that allows me to interact with my friends. …Facebook already dominates everybody who has social interactions. How the hell is Nintendo going to substitute for that? My friends who care know what I’m interested in—and the ones who don’t know aren’t interested. I think a lot of the appeal of the concept that Nintendo was going to enter the mobile market was attributable to a misperception that Nintendo would take its library of content and move it onto the mobile platform. It doesn’t look like they have any intention of doing that.”
