Miitomo is a game from Nintendo that is a free download for iOS and Android devices where you create your own avatar and its personality. You will compete against your friends but nothing like Game of War, Clash Royale, and Candy Crush Saga. It has the look of app such as Snapchat and any social app that features digital stickers and emoji. Released in earlier March in Japan, the game is very popular that in its first three days it hit more than 1 million downloads. It is now available in US, Ireland, UK, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and some European countries.
Those who had owned Nintendo’s DS and Wii in the latest years would be familiar with the Mii avatars. You can create avatar that look anything you want. The camera lets you create Miitomo avatar that look like you. Before you send it off to socialize with your friends’ avatar, the app lets you manage how it speaks and moves. Your avatar will start conversation and ask questions such as what you’ve been doing lately. When they meet other Miis, they will respond in the way that you have set earlier. It is similar to a chatbot found on classic messaging app that now is increasingly on-trend. Fortunately, you won’t find sexism, racism, and drug-smoking in this app.
The essential part of Miitomo is equipping virtual gear onto your Mii. You can spend your virtual coins to buy virtual clothes in an in-app shop. Coins can be acquired by using the app, or by using real money on to buy them. You can spend £0.79 to get 1,000 coins and £54.99 for 105,000 coins. There are lots of items to choose from including shoes that cost 250 coins or robot outfits for 6,400 coins. The gaming parts of Miitomo also need coins to play. There is a built-in mini-game that let you to win prizes that aren’t offered in the shop including virtual outfits by dropping your character into prize choices environment.
Though it is more of an app than a game, there is more a daily draw you can get. It is possible to get more items the more you are dedicated to play. There is also a photo-editing tool called Miifoto that offer much more amusement from the app. You can create photographs of your Miis and those of your friends and put some captions, stickers and backgrounds. This is pretty much fun you can get from Miitomo especially as you can share them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
