Not so much a game, more a social media app, MiiTomo allows your Mii to interact with the Mii Universe. MiiTomo will be the first Nintendo and DeNA partnership project to be published. (gamezplay are not impressed)

This is just one of 5 smartphone games Nintendo intent to release by March 2016, the game was expected to launch this year but has been delayed due to - "the need for more lead time to fully promote and explain Miitomo." - says Mr Kimishima.

MiiTomo will be free-to-play with in App purchases to add features (like CandyCrush).

Nintendo statement:-
"a free-to-start communication application that helps friends share fun personal facts and interests. Consumers create and use their own Mii characters to engage friends in a welcoming social environment, answering questions and sharing information to discover more about each other and what they have in common. Miitomo is designed to appeal to a wide range of global smart device users and introduce them to uniquely Nintendo experiences beginning with Miitomo and carried through future applications."

The other four titles are expect to be payed for Apps which may include Mario somewhere.

This isn’t the first Nintendo partner mobile title. The Pokemon Company launched Pokemon Go earlier this year, plus they released Pokemon Shuffle for iOS and Android and Pokemon Trading Card Game for iPad.
