Nintendo to shut down Miitomo this year

IMG_6544.JPG

Nintendo will be shutting down the online service to one of its first ever mobile apps, Miitomo, later this year. Launched in March 2016, Miitomo was a phone app that utilized Nintendo's Mii characters in a social game. On May 9, 2018, the game will entirely cease to function. Clothing you've unlocked will not be usable, any and all friend answers you've received will be deleted, photos you've saved to the app will be deleted unless saved to your device, and sale of premium Miitomo coins will stop. Daily login bonuses will continue up until the game stops functioning, so players can still play the minigames before May 9th.

It doesn't really suck to see this go. Miitomo was a cool concept, but nobody really used it. I had like two friends who actually had it but that was it. It would've been nice if i didn't actually need friends to use literally the entire thing, but it's whatever. Godspeed Miitomo, you were a cool mobile mii maker.

Wow, that was insanely quick. To have shut down their first foray into the mobile space before not even two years were up means there really wasn't anyone using the app, huh? Within my friend circle, everyone used the app for about a week before dropping it and forgetting it existed. If they really wanted this to be a social service people returned to, then they should've added incentives to come back, which they clearly didn't. Furthermore, it was stupidly difficult to add friends. I'm still holding out hope that Nintendo's new online service comes with proper friend features, like searching by username.
