    Your coins expire, and now the app where people spend most of their coins is gonna expire! Really, this is fine /s

    Everything I know about Miitomo comes from this song. Like most invasive apps, I'm sure it was a good data-collection app for Nintendo.

    The only thing that I'll really miss is the text to speech part. But well...that's about it, and I doubt Nintendo will make that engine available to the public.

    Played it when it first came out, but didn't play it for long. There wasn't much to it since it was like a terribly watered down version of Tomodachi life.

    Oh, I forgot this existed. I played some Mii RPG game on 3DS, where the Miis you get are randomly generated by the online community. It was pretty fun, and funny as fuck at the random people you'd get. I remember being surprised and laughing for a while when the mayor was Gabe Newell.

    It does seem like the powers that be are just done with Mii's altogether. Especially surprising, given that they were shiggy's creation, and his ego gets a lot of pull there.

    First problem with Miitomo, was that there was eff all to do on it. It just seemed like it was there to mine survey data from us.

    The next problem was that much of the stuff available on it were behind a glorified pachinko machine. And seeing how Konami imploded to chase that niche, any gamers aware of this turn would have a sour taste in the mouth from this method.

    It was a cool idea but the way Nintendo runs things killed it after a few weeks.

    I'm surprised they are doing this already. The app is still so young!

    It is young, but like Pokemon GO, terrible management of it and the massive loss of interest and as nobody cares about MyNintendo (for in-game stuff) anymore, it's hardly making any profit. PGO managed to last longer because of the brand, no surprise Miitomo is dying.

    My Nintendo will likely get closed once that paid switch online arrives since they keep delaying the Switch part and despite the 3DS having much more content than the Wii U they still offer crap rewards/discounts.

    I still wonder what made them get so stingy with the rewards on there... There have hardly been 2-3 rewards even remotely decent!
