Train2Game News Miitomo Update

When Nintendo’s first smart-device app, Miitomo, launched in March, it set the stage for future mobile games like the upcoming Super Mario Run. Miitomo has received a major update that adds even more ways for players to express themselves and communicate with friends and is out now.
After downloading the free update, users can immediately enhance their social adventures by sending private messages to any of their friends who also have the Miitomo app, customising their in-game Mii character’s room with things like posters and Nintendo-themed wallpaper and sharing their answers and outfits with even more Miitomo users.

Here is a taste of some of the new things users can do after downloading the free Miitomo update:

· Private messages: After downloading the update, users can send private messages to anyone on their friends list. Users can set the expression of their Mii, and either a user’s main Mii character or a Sidekick Mii will personally deliver the in-app message to the friend.

· Room customisation: Rooms can be decorated with custom flooring and wallpaper, which can both be collected for free in the in-app Miitomo Drop game or by completing in-app actions. Some of the wallpaper is even inspired by some of Nintendo’s key franchises like Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda and Metroid. Rooms can also be decorated with posters, adorned with Miifoto images or even real-life photos contained on the user’s smart device. Each room can hold up to eight posters. Poster spots, which each hold one poster, can be purchased individually for £0.79 from the in-game store.

· Style Central: Dressing up in the latest outfits in Miitomo is a big part of the fun. With the new Style Central feature, users can submit up to three of their favourite custom outfits a day to share with other users. These other users can browse the submitted outfits to ‘like’ them or try them on. By sharing outfits, users receive My Nintendo points that can be redeemed for fun Nintendo rewards. 

Visit https://my.nintendo.com/ for more information about My Nintendo.

· Answer Central: One of the main features of Miitomo is answering fun questions and sharing those answers with others. The new Answer Central hub displays a public list of questions and answers that anyone can browse or comment on. This opens up the social interactions to a much wider base.

· Sidekick Mii characters: Sidekick Mii characters are controlled by the account user, but play secondary roles to the main Mii. Sidekicks have their own rooms, can be dressed and can even be set to public or private. Up to 100 Sidekick Mii characters can be assigned to the main user.

· Easier to Use: A new timeline feature allows you to see your friends’ latest answers without the need to speak to other Mii characters. You will also be able to see your friends’ customised rooms.

Alongside today’s update, Miitomo has launched in more countries including Portugal, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland. For more information about Miitomo, visit https://miitomo.com.

Don’t miss out on being a part of a Nintendo first! Throughout the day on Thursday 31st March, Miitomo, the company’s first-ever smart device application, is rolling out in several countries across Europe.

Miitomo, which recently launched in Japan and has already passed one million downloads, is a free-to-start social experience that lets users spark one-of-a-kind conversations with friends in a whole new way using Mii characters.

Getting started with Miitomo and being a part of this Nintendo milestone is easy. After downloading the app for free from the App Store for iPhone, iPod touch or iPad,along with Android devices, users create a Mii character and customise facial features like eyes and hair, as well as voice and personality.

Users can also use the camera on their smart devices to snap a photo of themselves, which can be used to create a Mii, or they can simply import their Mii from their Wii U or Nintendo 3DS family system using a QR Code.

Once their Mii is ready, users can add friends who already have the app in person, or by linking the app with their existing Facebook or Twitter accounts.

After that step is complete, it’s time to answer some questions! Miitomo creates conversations and turns discussions into a form of play by prompting users to answer all kinds of fun questions.

How would you define your fashion style? What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten? If you were given ten grand to spend in one day, what would you do? The answers get shared among friends, sparking interesting conversations – part of the fun is discovering unexpected facts about your friends. When users hear how their friends respond to questions, they can give answers, a “heart”, or a written or picture comment.

To preregister for Miitomo, sign up for a Nintendo Account at https://miitomo.com before 31st March to receive an email when the app is ready to download. People who create their Nintendo Account and preregister before 31st March will also receive Platinum Points for the new My Nintendo rewards programme, which will simultaneously launch with Miitomo.

My Nintendo is much more than a rewards programme: it’s a comprehensive service that also rewards users for interacting with Nintendo products and services in a variety of ways. Miitomo users who link the app to their Nintendo Account will be able to take advantage of My Nintendo to enhance their experience.

Platinum Points can be earned by interacting with Nintendo apps and services, including Miitomo. Gold Points are earned when purchasing downloadable games from the official Nintendo website or Nintendo eShop on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

Both Platinum and Gold Points can be redeemed for rewards like games, download content, in-app items and Nintendo eShop discounts.

Users who sign up for a Nintendo Account before the end of April will also be able to download Flipnote Studio 3D to their Nintendo 3DS system for free.

To claim the download, users must link their new Nintendo Account to the Nintendo Network ID they use on their Nintendo 3DS family system, then use the download option on the Flipnote Studio 3D page on the official Nintendo website between 31st March and 30th April.

In addition to Miitomo and My Nintendo, from the afternoon of 31st March users with a Nintendo Account and linked Nintendo Network ID will be able to purchase select Wii U and Nintendo 3DS software, using their Nintendo eShop balance, from the Nintendo of Europe website. The user’s purchased software will then be downloaded via SpotPass and installed automatically, ready for play the next time they pick up their system.

This new purchase option serves as an additional resource to the Nintendo eShop on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, and makes purchasing software and earning My Nintendo Gold Points even more convenient
Thursday March 31st is set to be an exciting day for Nintendo fans, with the following key launches:

· Miitomo will roll out in several European countries throughout the day.

Stay tuned to Nintendo’s official Twitter account to find out when the app is available in your country.
