Miitomo Site Launches February 17, 2016Posted by Maniac in Game News.
Today, Nintendo has launched the website Miitomo, and is offering players the chance to pre-register for it before the service goes live!
Miitomo is planned as a social networking site for Nintendo lovers. In it, you can create a Mii and use it as your social avatar for communicating with others. A dedicated SmartPhone app is planned for iOS and Android devices, and that app will launch with the service in March 2016.
I think Nintendo is in a great position to launch a social networking community. They did a great job with the Miiverse community back when the Wii U launched, I could easily see this service being used for people who outright refuse to use other services like Facebook due to privacy concerns.
Preregistration will continue until the service officially launches. Anyone who preregisters during this period will earn some exclusive platinum points for use when Nintendo launches the My Nintendo club site.
