Nintendo is Developing a Mii-Centric Smartphone App

By   /   Feb 12, 2015

Would you like to use your Mii avatar on the social media? I would. Nintendo’s heart and soul Mr. Satoru Iwata has shared some exciting news regarding the same question during a very extensive interview.

According to Iwata, Nintendo is developing a new smartphone app that will allow users to use their Mii avatar on the social media as icons. In his own words:

…For example, some Nintendo game consoles incorporate Mii, which creates a digital avatar to represent players. It would be fun for players to use their Mii characters as icons on social media. We are currently developing an application that will allow users to do that. The app will be announced around the time our full-year results are released.

As mentioned, Nintendo will formally announce this app close to the reveal of its annual financial results.

Moreover, it seems that we may be seeing more third-party smartphone-like games on 3DS in the future. Iwata stated that Nintendo will look at various mobile projects while player feedback will determine which titles will be developed:

It is also possible to turn smartphone games from other software makers into 3DS-compatible games and offer them for relatively low prices. We intend to pursue a variety of options. Only those products and services that receive strong support from customers will survive.

That’s interesting, as if we already didn’t have a plethora of games to play on 3DS. Still, one can never have enough games in his collection, right?
