Nintendo's cartoon avatars, known as Miis have been around since the Nintendo Wii was unleashed back in 2006. Over the years we've seen Miis being used creatively in many games including Wii Sports, Miitopia, Miitomo, as well as StreetPass and Miiverse.

Many had assumed that the writing was on the wall for Miis when Miiverse was discontinued. While they have had limited use on the Switch so far, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe supports Miis, and the upcoming Go Vacation will make a big deal of Miis, too.

With this in mind, it seems like high-time for Nintendo to give us a tool so we can create new Miis from the comfort of our own desktop computers. Welcome Mii Studio which allows you to do just that, it's now live and you can find it here:

In addition to creating new Miis, you can also manage existing Mii creations and tweak them to perfection.
