Nintendo’s first smartphone app “Miitomo” launches in Japan

Miitomo has finally arrived in Japan, after years of fevered demands for Nintendo to start releasing smartphone apps. But Nintendo being Nintendo, things were never going to be quite as simple as sticking Super Mario Bros. on the iPhone and calling it a day. What we have instead is a social app for iOS and Android that might not star Mario or Link, but still couldn’t be more Nintendo if it tried.

It’s not for me but I know a huge amount of people that are going to love the crap out of this. Only available in Japan right now Nintendo are expected to launch it globally later this month.
