Nintendo Officially Announces First Mobile Title, MiiTomo

MiiTomo character creation
Earlier this week, Nintendo officially unveiled the first fruits of its new partnership with mobile giant, DeNA.
MiiTomo, will be the first mobile app/game from Nintendo and will be a communication app featuring characters and environments similar to those in Nintendo’s Tomodachi Life on Nintendo 3DS. The game will be free to play with in-app purchases.
Nintendo described Miitomo as “a free-to-start communication application that helps friends share fun personal facts and interests. Consumers create and use their own Mii characters to engage friends in a welcoming social environment, answering questions and sharing information to discover more about each other and what they have in common. Miitomo is designed to appeal to a wide range of global smart device users and introduce them to uniquely Nintendo experiences beginning with Miitomo and carried through future applications.”
While no further details were provided regarding gameplay it does appear to be connected to Tomodachi Life. While the game was expected to release by the end of 2015, Nintendo explained that the reason for the delay of the release of their first mobile title was to allow more time to promote MiiTomo.
MiiTomo is set to launch on mobile devices in 2016.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
