Miitomo Smartphone App Being Discontinued May 9th January 25, 2018

Nintendo’s first official steps into producing smartphone applications for platforms they didn’t create themselves were in the form of the apps Miitomo and Super Mario Run. While Super Mario Run has gone on to win several “Best Smartphone Game” awards since it was released on iPhone and Android platforms, Miitomo was left as a forgotten piece of software on most smartphone’s download history. Today, Nintendo has officially announced Miitomo is being discontinued and service will end on May 9th, 2018.

I remember being very interested in Miitomo when it first launched. The concept of having a social media application that used my Mii avatar was interesting at first. However, in practice as a social application it was kind of redundant since I could use my device to communicate with my friends without the application using hundreds of other means. In fact, I think the only reason I used it was to earn extra Platinum Points in the My Nintendo reward service.

Once ended, the Miitomo app will no longer function. However, Nintendo does assure players that any Platinum Points players earn while the app is functioning will carry over to My Nintendo until the app is discontinued.
