Nintendo has taken its first steps into the world of social media. Miitomo is a social media platform created by the Japanese company that mixes the idea of a game and a social messaging app. Starting by creating an in-app version of yourself, called a ‘Mii’, users can then edit their Mii, before adding friends from Twitter or Facebook. They can then play mini-games with friends to unlock things like new items of clothing, or take in-game selfies with friends Miis. Other activities involve asking the users own Mii a question, to which it will respond, or asking friends a question to which only you will see the answer. Currently available in Singapore on the iOS operating system, it will soon be followed by an Android version.
