Miitomo is a weird game Nintendo made where your Mii runs around talking about you behind your back, and spreads gossip. It's for smartphones/tablets only and connects to your My Nintendo account, and can earn you free "platinum points" for using it (as well as costing actual money if you want to buy clothes).

It has the dubious honor of not only being the first Nintendo game you can apparently get away with saying swears, but also the one where your friends can give you only-you-can-see answers that can be quite, uh. Well

Unfortunately friending people in it is awkward, since you have to be friends with them on Twitter or have enough "mutual" friends... or be right next to each other. Nintendo is always really hit or miss with these things.

I saw it's launch, and I would have checked it out, BUT..., I don't own a smartphone so that door kind of closed itself. I did sign up for their "My Nintendo" account though. Nice to FINALLY have a reward program that I can use, because Scandinavian was previously excluded from the European club nintendo. :/

I've been enjoying Miitomo a lot, though I agree I wish it was easier to add someone without the social media link.

It's a fun little toy; manages to have a very intimate feel for a modern social network. Though I'm not sure I'm really interested in any of the My Nintendo rewards as of yet :p

That's fine! I have a Samsung phone but the app's only out on Android and iOS so I'd normally be screwed as well, but as it turns out Android emulators are advanced enough that I can just play Miitomo on PC. (I'm using BlueStacks.)

I mostly joined it for the regular My Nintendo coins (currently eyeing the Picross game when I have more time to play it), but the Miifoto thing is pretty fun and I kinda wish there were an easier way to share them. As it is, you can only share pics in-app if they're your latest "you changed your clothes, show them off" pic (in which case you can only include your one Mii) or if you comment on an answer with a Miifoto (which no one I've friended seems to do much...).




Anyways, I'm still looking to add people because the last bonus for adding friends is at 20 total friends, if people are actually using Miitomo .

Maybe it has gotten better, but when I tried BlueStacks a good while back (over a year ago) it not only did a lot of shading things happen with the installation, it was fucking impossible to get rid of. Since then I simply can't trust that program or it's developers.

Well, BlueStacks had a pop-up for a while saying that it'll force me to update but it hasn't, so... whatever.



Latest Miitomo Drop board has marriage suits and dresses and stuff, it's super-cute!

Still nice to check up on every so often, trying to come up with cute Miifotos has been a neat game in and of itself.

I remember trying out Miitomo at one point, ended up uninstalling it because the android tablet I owned at the time didn't have much room. Also its easy to get tonnes of people on your friends lists from twitter but the list has a tendency to show people you don't know instead...

Miitomo Drop is the worst thing ever. There's a Reddit thread and YouTube videos that show the exact timing on how to pull some of it off but it's still hard to do.

The entire Miitomo app is bloated. Deleted it after a week because it's 900mb on a 16gb phone. I don't play a lot of games on my phone + the cost of clothing, difficulty of that Prices is Right plinko machine knock off, and answering the same asinine questions over and over to a bunch of strangers turned me off to it. There's nothing fun to it. Mii characters are neat but the execution here leaves a lot to be desired. Also, My Nintendo kind of sucks.
