Nintendo Reveals First Mobile Game: Miitomo


After announced that it would develop mobile games earlier this year, Nintendo finally reveals its first title.

Dubbed Miitomo ("tomo" means "friend" in Japanese), the free-to-play smartphone game is described as a "social networking game" that allows players to make their own avatars called "Mii," and then communicate with other Miis.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo says the app is "ideal for players who are reluctant to reveal things about themselves or talk to others."

Miitomo is due out next spring.

It is said to be the first of five smartphone games Nintendo plans to release through March 2017.
