Miitomo coming to Japan on March 17
Miitomo, Nintendo’s first mobile game, will be available in Japan later this month for iOS and Android devices.
Miitomo is described as a “social experience that uses Nintendo’s Mii characters to engage friends in a lighthearted, playful and welcoming social setting.”
Players will be able to share pictures to social networks using the Miifoto feature, which will launch alongside the game next month.
You can now register for Miitomo here, and getting in early may grant you a few bonuses on release.

Nintendo also plan to debut the My Nintendo service this year.
My Nintendo will act as the replacement to Club Nintendo, a program that saw players register games for stars they could then spent on a variety of rewards.
The new program will have two levels of points, Gold and Platinum. Nintendo is yet to detail how these are gained and what they are for, but hopefully we can spend them on adorable plushies (like this one).
Nintendo plans to release a total of five smartphone games by 2017, with hopes that the combination of mobile games and NX will return the company to “Nintendo-like profits.”
