Nintendo Is Officially Shutting Down Miitomo For Good

Nintendo has confirmed plans to end Miitomo on May 9, 2018. Miitomo is Nintendo’s first app made exclusively for smart devices. It launched in March 2016 for both iOS and Android phones and tablets, which means it will be a little more than two years old when Nintendo ends the service permanently. The official announcement regarding the termination of Miitomo is as follows:

Miitomo will end its service at 12:00 AM (PDT) on 5/9/2018, and we want to thank you for your support since the Miitomo app’s launch.

The sale of Miitomo coins ended on 1/24/2018. Until the end of the Miitomo service on 5/9, we’re offering daily login bonuses of Miitomo coins and game tickets so that users can continue to play Miitomo Drop and use other features such as the Miitomo shop. Please see here for more information.

About the app after the end of service

  • If you launch the app after the end of service on 5/9, you’ll see a message informing you that service has ended. You will no longer be able to use any of the app’s features.
  • You will no longer be able to see your answers or messages in the app.
  • You will no longer be able to use items you’ve obtained in the app, such as clothing items, wallpapers, or posters.
  • You can transfer your Mii™ character to your Nintendo Account by linking it to Miitomo. (Its personality and other information will not be carried over.)
  • Sidekick Mii characters will be deleted. You can keep Sidekick Mii characters by saving them as a QR Code® before the end of service on 5/9/2018 12:00 AM (PDT). They can then be transferred to Mii Maker on the Nintendo 3DS™ family of systems or the Wii U™ console.
  • You will not be able to view Miifotos, including Miifotos you have shared to your social media channels. If you want to save any Miifotos, you must save them to your smart device before 5/9/2018 12:00 AM (PDT).
  • Miitomo- themed icons and clothing items used in your Nintendo Account or the Super Mario Run™ game will not display after the service has ended.

  1. That’s sad considering I liked the idea of a Nintendo-based chatting system.
    It was also kinda neat that you can make custom photos using it.

    Oh well, hopefully whatever they use to replace this app will be better.
    Maybe some kind of card-based Star Fox RPG inspired by Hearthstone?

    1. A star fox based card game?!? Genius, but might I suggest a Smash Bros. inspired card game? Hopefully more its own thing and not inspired by Hearthstone though.
      Great, now I’m going to be thinking about Super Smash Bros: Card Battles™ for hours.

      1. Still doesn’t feel like it lasted that long and what a waste of a chat app that’s suppose to bridge mobile and console. Maybe they should move this to Switch instead of canceling it so soon and I would love to hear what dumbass reason they have to do this but not make Niantic update that goddamn PKMN Go with trading/battling system yet.

    1. Decent? That app was trash. It was tedious to use and the ammountbof battery and data it used was insane, even after the update that took care of it. Its getting axes for a reason, and not because it was decent.

      1. No. Miiverse is what you call trash; a super restricted Twitter ripoff. Also, I never encountered any battery issues because I don’t use it nonstop and there is a thing called “battery saver” that halves the frame rate and disabling music also helps. Compare to that shit PKMN Go that actually drains your battery and data like crazy, Miitomo is a much better social/game app. It should stay as Mobile’s own Mii Creator app with all clothes and unlocks accessible through mini games or at least bring it to the Switch.

      2. Miiverse is sub-trash. If your bar of actually decent is Nintendo’s online offering then I feel bad for you. To even think that that trash is even remotely decent is pathetically sad, keep teeling yourself that its “decent” but that trash is getting canned for a reason.

      3. IDK why you think Nintendo’s online is terrible when they usually make sure their services doesn’t get fucked in the ass by hackers like PSN in 2011 all because dumbass Sony didn’t bother to put in a basic Firewall.

      4. 2011 was 7 years ago, and even then Sony had a more robust online infrastructure than what Ninty had. Do you really believe that hackers havent found holes on Ninty’s online infrastructure? 😂🤣😂🤣 Boy! Hackers have came out and said (the same ones that hacked Sony, Lulzsec) that theyve found holes in Nintys security, and I quote, “Nintendo, we just got a config file and made it clear that we didn’t mean any harm.” 😂 tell me more though because I love it when you reply 😂

      5. Oh yeah. So “robust” that it literally fucking lags everytime you load the PS Store screen and menu…

        And you had to bring up “hackers” into the equation of bashing Nintendo’s online? lol That is a very sad attempt for two reasons: 1. The hacks on Nintendo console famously known as “Homebrew” has been very received. Look at Project M. And 2. Nintendo vigorously patches said exploits very quickly..every time. Where the fuck has Sony been up to the point of 2011’s PSN hack that actually compromised and exposed credit/debit card and contact/name information on a GLOBAL scale? Where’s your excuse now bitch?

      6. Let me guess, youre comparing the PS4’s OS to tbe barebones Switch’s OS? Lol youre such a riot! youre cute attempts really do make me look forwards to your sad attempts 😂

        Homebrew/hacks are different from online infrastructure hacks you dipshit. Learn the difference, and yes, Nintendo has been saved from Infrastructure hacks, lulzsec has admitted to finding these exploits but reporting them to Nintendo, can you not read moron? Smh. That 2011 hack happened for a reason, but im sure your ignorant ass doesnt even know why.

      7. Both OSs are very simple but Switch’s doesn’t lag to shit. And BTW, repeating my words as a rebuttal is fucking pathetic of you especially for a Sony Pony and how ironic on top of that knowing fully well that Sony rips off Nintendo on multiple occasions, even thinking about copycatting the Switch right now. Sad.

        And how the fuck can you say, with a straight face, that I don’t know shit about PSN hack from 2011? I HAD A PS3 AT THE TIME YOU DUMBASS.

      8. You fucking moron, im far from a “Pony” Sony could leave the console market and it wouldnt faze me, Sony is an unoriginal company that is relevant because of the bandwagons they jump in, they Copy both Nintendo and MS and the fans eat their crap and praise them 😂😂 and NO! The Switches OS is barebones. You’re an Idiot if you think theyre the same in any sense, the Switch uses a single core (it has 4) to run the OS, the PS4 uses 2 (it has 8) and just for the lulz, the XBO uses 3, it also has 8. A barebones OS that ruins fluid isnt an accomplishment, specially one that has newer processors 😅

        If you did, then you would know that all 3 of them had about the same security. Sony was targeted for a reason, Sony was just stupid and lacked the right people to fix shit. You should pray to whatever the hell you pray that Nintendo wasnt the one hacked, they wouldve been rolling in shit because their infrastructure is still mediocre at best right now, back in 2013 that thing was just a windows 98 server in a janitors closet being cooled by bucket of ice cubes and a fan FOH!!! 😂😂😂

      9. Oh forgive for not realizing how basic Switch OS looks. BTW, PS4 UI looks strangely identical to that of Apple TV and here’s the kicker: Online security and lag is still shit even on the Pro model and after 7 years since the huge PSN compromise. Your point?

        I bet your stupid ass doesnt even know why, or how its happeneing.

        Let me enlighten your ignorant ass. The reason = DDoS attack. On what? Dyn Internet Domain.

        DDoS are not network hacks. But I bet your stupid ass doesnt even know what it is, youre the same idiot that thought homebrews were on the same scale as a network hack 😂😂😂

      11. And you’re talking shit about Nintendo’s constantly maintained online…why?

        Also, I don’t need to read what I already know it’s happening. This is not news to me because it’s a regular problem for PSN since their phenomenal fuck up hacks from 2011.

        The point is this: I’m right and PSN is a lot worse now than it has been by charging $60 and not fix a goddamn problem in almost 7 years. Nintendo on the other hand, does regularly schedules maintenance and release patch updates. That’s at least responsible for a company to do no matter how basic or “shitty” their services are. Case close and have a nice day Sony Pony.

      12. You idiot! Nintendo patches theyre OS, so hardware and software hackers cant modd/hack theyre console. That has nothing to do with infrastructure hacks or DDoS attacks. LEARN THE DIFFERENCE you dipshit. The 2011 hack happened in 2011, and hasnt happened since. These current attacks are DDoS attacks. For the love of what ever makes you happy, PLEASE learn what they are and stop making yourself look like a fucken moron 😅 and trust me, if Nintendo had a decent network they would have regular maintenance AND if they had a great network you would rarely see them like WE (again, im not a sony pony you tard) on LIVE rarely see them.

      13. You’re not getting it dumbass. Nintendo shows attention to their service. Sony doesn’t. If they had, we would be playing PS3 games on PS4 and have crossplay as well as UI that doesn’t lag as worse as Smash Bros. Brawl or as vulnerable as Linux OS but did we get any of that…

      14. Again you dipshit! Nintendo’s OS is barebones, it shouldnt lag. You cant do shit on the Switch other than play games and screen cap shit. You cant even stream gameplay or capture it. IT SHOULD NEVER LAG, what is it about barebones OS that youre stupid ass doesnt undersrand?

        The PS3 used a Cell Processor, and the Ps4 used an x86 processor. Thats why its not possible, the only way to go about it would be emulation and the PS4 is just not strong enough to emulate a ps3 you moron. Cross play is not necessary to them. They are winning, why would they give up a lead like that? Hell, up until the switch, Nintendo gave little to no shits about cross play. AGAIN, you are comparing a 2013 console to a barebones 2017 console. A console that only screen caps to one that can Stream AND video capture AND hiccups at worse. I have no idea why your dumbass keeps taking about lagging 😂 brawl lagged because Ninty didnt use dedicated servers, Smash 4 also lagged for the same reason (but apparently to you Nintendo is attentive as hell!)

        Man, I havent seen this much stupidity from one person since Stranga was around 🤣😂🤣😂🤣

      15. Reading the first few dumbass comments from you already gave me cancer. Not once has my Switch lag when loading eShop. Not once has my Switch lag while playing online games so far. Not once has my Switch ever been used to screen cap shit on a regular basis which BTW, PS4/XB1 aren’t safe from doing that shit either and how can you expect to stream from a 6.2 inch tablet console when the primary focus is the games? BTW, if it did stream, it would lag (like every other system) and you would still bitch about it so why bother asking or ranting for that matter?

        PS3 has Cell Processor. Big fucking whoop. Still didn’t help load it’s crappy PSN UI or save it’s ass from the 2011 hack. If they are “winning”, why are they so itching to rip off the Switch with their retarded “portable PS4” patent that was leaked months ago? Lastly, IDGAF about game streams because that’s not an issue or necessity ATM. Its the games, that’s what the Switch needs right now.

        BTW, I AM/WAS STRANGA YOU DUMBASS.

    1. They better migrate this app and everything into the Switch or people are gonna get pissed. Also, this notes that Nintendo is losing interests in Mobile already or they’re moving it to the Switch to make it the premier mobile gaming device for all fronts.

  2. Like I said in a reply, I want Super Smash Bros: Card Battles™ for the next Nintendo app. A collectable card game featuring ALL of Nintendo. Goodbye useless trophies, hello usable trophy cards! Ridley too big for Smash 4? Not for Smash Card Battles! Deploy your warriors, play your attack cards and Trophy cards, draw your character specific Final Smash card for devastating effect! I can’t stop coming up with ideas! Someone help me!

    1. It would be even more interesting, in my opinion, if like the main cards were like all the trophies, assists and so on, and the more powerful and unlockable cards would be the main Smash Bros cast. They even have many series so you could have like a Star Fox deck, a Zelda deck, and so on. Darn it! Now I want this too!

  3. Dang, here I was waiting for Switch integration so we could really customize our Mii’s. I think it would have work well as a social hub but somehow it was tedious as an app. Thought it would come together if it connected to Switch somehow but that won’t be happening now..

  4. Probably has more to do with phasing out “Mii”s in general than it does this particular app. I really wish they’d stop canceling such short lived services though. It reduces my confidence in investing time or money in future projects that I don’t know if they’ll be supported or not.

  5. Pretty strange move.
    I personally used this app for one year but when SMR and FEH came out I didn’t give attention to this app anymore (plus nobody used it from where I live).
    I hope they bring a new game instead and don’t shutdown SMR since a bought it

  6. Only a handful of my friends even tried using Miitomo and literally ALL of them dropped it after only a week or two, which is a shame because it gained a LOT of features over time. Unfortunately for fans, at least in the US, Miitomo was dead long ago.
