In Nintendo's latest strategy briefing for investors, it revealed that the first smartphone title released will be a rather quirky Mii-centric game called Miitomo. Though many were disappointed to hear the news that this has been delayed to March 2016, it nonetheless has sparked lots of interest as to what exactly it is. Nintendo recently translated the full briefing to English and we now have a better idea of what to expect out of Miitomo.


To begin with, you'll create a Mii character to represent you. Whether or not you can import Miis from other Nintendo devices remains to be seen, but it's likely that there'll be some means of doing this. Your Mii will then ask you a series of questions that you'll respond to and these answers will be communicated to the Miis that your friends have created.

One key thing to be aware of is that answers will be shared exclusively with those on your friends list. While this may seem like a rather odd choice, the questions may deal with rather personal information and the goal of this app is to create a comfortable and secure environment for friends to learn new things about each other.

It seems that the point of this is to provide a platform where shy or introverted people can communicate on a deeper level with fellow friends. For example, your Mii may ask questions of friends that they usually don't discuss, but would answer if asked. These will be referred to as "friendly communication starters".

What do you think? Is this the right title to lead the way on smart devices? How do you think this is going to pan out? Drop us a comment in the section below.
