Miitomo has now been available in the West for around three weeks, and Nintendo has made the first move in linking the smart device app with a current day hit. It's launching a range of Splatoon-related promotions and content with the app, while also encouraging fans to retweet key messages.

First of all, between now and 26th April Nintendo is looking for retweets of the following tweets or any messages from these official accounts with the hashtag.

The promotion has already earned more than 10,000 retweets, ensuring Miitomo owners will get an Inkling Boy Wig, while 20,000 retweets (which seems inevitable) will add an Inkling Girl wig.

Moving on, from 27th April to 29th May Splatoon stages will be added to Miitomo Drop, with the following items up for grabs.

It's no surprise that Nintendo is combining Splatoon with Miitomo - the Wii U shooter has been a notable success for the company over the past year.
