Don’t miss out on being a part of a Nintendo first! Miitomo, the company’s first-ever smart device application, will be coming soon to Mexico and Brazil. Miitomo 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. The app launched in March in 16 countries and has already crossed more than 10 million unique users worldwide.

“With Miitomo, Nintendo has taken its first step into the world of smart devices and brought smiles to more than 10 million faces,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “Miitomo brings the special Nintendo charm and polish that people around the world love to an entirely new format and audience, which will soon include people in Mexico and Brazil.”

Getting started with Miitomo and being a part of this Nintendo milestone is easy: After downloading the application for free on the App Store for iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, or on Google Play on Android devices, users create a Mii character and customize 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 systems using a QR Code.

Once their Mii is ready, users can add friends who already have the app in person, by linking the app with their existing Facebook or Twitter accounts, by email or SMS. 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 weirdest 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 responded to questions, they can give answers a “heart” or a written or picture comment. More than 300 million conversations have been sparked between friends in Miitomo.

In Miitomo, users can insert their Mii characters into photos to create unique “Miifotos.” Users can let their creativity go wild, putting their Mii and friends’ Mii characters in images they make from a library of stamps, fonts, and backgrounds. Users can also use photos from a smart device’s camera as backgrounds for Miifoto creations and even share their Miifoto creations on social media, such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. More than 20 million Miifotos have been created by people from all over the world!

Already available in Mexico and Brazil is the My Nintendo rewards program, a comprehensive service that 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 digital versions of games from the 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 eShop discount coupons.
