If you want in on this you can preregister this month on February 17th by creating a Nintendo account or using an existing one. And yes this service will be using your Mii’s in a social format. Now signing up early promises you first access and some bonuses. Now some of you that do portable gaming on the various Nintendo devices will already be familiar with this with tagging friends and photos:
Starting Feb. 17, people will be able to pre-register for Miitomo by signing up for the new Nintendo Account service using their existing email, social media accounts or current Nintendo Network IDs. People who pre-register will be among the first to be notified about the availability of Miitomo when it launches in March. Nintendo will offer a special Miitomo bonus to anyone who signs up for a Nintendo Account between Feb. 17 and launch. Miitomo is a social experience that uses Nintendo’s Mii characters, which first debuted on the Wii console, to engage friends in a lighthearted and welcoming environment. Users can spark fun conversations and learn more about each other by answering questions such as “What song has been stuck in your head lately?”, “Do you believe in aliens?”, or even “If you saw a nose hair sticking out of your friend’s nose, what would you do?” Users can also easily take and share photos featuring their Mii with the Miifoto feature. Nintendo’s new My Nintendo rewards program will launch alongside Miitomo in March, and will be able to connect with the app.
Launching alongside Miitomo in March, My Nintendo aims to become much more than a traditional rewards program. It is a more comprehensive service that rewards users for interacting with Nintendo products and services in a variety of ways. Miitomo users with a Nintendo Account will be able to take advantage of My Nintendo to enhance their experience.
“Miitomo is a uniquely entertaining mobile experience that only Nintendo can deliver,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “Featuring Mii characters, users will be able to interact with their friends in an entirely new way that transforms communication into a form of play.”
Also the My Nintendo rewards program will launch the same month overhauling the old rewards program much like Playstation and Xbox do with their sub programs. But the Nintendo isn’t done there as they also plan to release five smart applications by March 2017. Information will be coming out on Nintendo’s official site www.nintendo.com in the coming weeks but be prepared to sign up for this new experience coming from Nintendo. So tell me guys do you think this could bring Nintendo back up in the standings as far as gaming? I’d love to hear what your take on this is.
