Miitomo Launch Date Announced

Following the announcement of Miitomo Pre-Registration going live about four weeks ago, Nintendo is back once again with some pretty exciting news and has announced that users interested in the company's first-ever app for smart devices will soon be able to get their hands on it.

With Miitomo, which is said to "sparks one-of-a-kind conversations between you and your friends", users will be able to create and customize their character from over 200 million Mii characters in order to act as their social go-between, as well as start conversations and turns discussions into a form of play by prompting users to answer all kinds of questions.

Miitomo will be available March 17 in Japan for free on both Android and iOS devices. Unfortunately, there is no word yet on a EU or US release date.
