Last night, American time, in Japan, Nintendo unveiled their first mobile game. The game is called Miitomo (Tomo is “friend” in Japanese).
According to the “Wall Street Journal,” Nintendo says the app is best for those reluctant to talk about themselves.
This app will be used with Nintendo’s new service, My Nintendo; a way to gap the console to mobile bridge.
The game will be free-to-play, however will have microtransactions within the game. This is the first of 5 games Nintendo plans to launch by March 2017. The other titles will be paid downloads.
Now, as a non-Nintendo person, I’m rather disappointed this is the game they announced first, but I guess I shouldn’t be shocked. I hope to see some cooler, more intriguing games announced in the future.
