Miitomo is Now Available for Preregistration!

We recently reported that My Nintendo Accounts could be created mid-February, which actually turned out to be yesterday.  However, today we got an official press release confirming previously reported information.  Here’s a summary:

  • When creating a My Nintendo Account, you can pre-register Miitomo, the new mobile app for IOS and Android.
  • By pre-registering, you will get a notification when it will be made available to download.
  • The pre-register period will end when the game launches
  • Those that pre-registered the game will be signed up to receive Platinum Points – which is part of the new reward program.
  • You begin by creating a Mii character.  Like on 3DS or Wii U, you can also take a picture and it will be immediately transformed into a character.
  • Already have a Mii character?  You can import it from your Nintendo console.
  • Once your character is ready, you can add friends.
  • Friends can be acquired from Facebook, Twitter, or even when hanging out with your friends.
  • You will learn more about your friends since you will be prompted questions to trigger discussions.
  • Your Mii character will be traveling with your friends.
  • When users hear how their friends responded to questions, they can give it a heart or comment through text or with a picture.
  • You can and create photos with your Mii in Miifoto, and you can share the photos in Miitomo, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
  • You will earn Miitomo coins while experiencing the app.  These coins can be used to purchase outfits – including shorts, pants, socks, shirts, shoes, accessories and hats.  Or full costumes such as a bear costume, pirate costume or hot dog costume.
  • Don’t want to earn those coins?  You can purchase them via in-app purchases.
