In the gaming world, perhaps none are more highly-regarded than Nintendo, a company who has been deeply rooted in the gaming industry since the early 80’s. For years Nintendo had been consistently producing quality games with memorable characters across multiple platforms, but in the modern age there was one area where they hadn’t yet explored. That was mobile games. Last year Nintendo officially announced they would be committing to the mobile game market with DeNA, a company well-versed in mobile games publishing, and even later last year they announced Miitomo, their first official game, or rather social game/app for Android and iOS devices.
Up until now Nintendo has been quiet on what they had planned for Miitomo in regards to a specific launch date and details surrounding that launch including where they plan to release Miitomo have eluded interested users. Today Nintendo has finally shared that they plan To launch this first title of theirs in March in both the UK and in Ireland, although unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a mention about a US launch or a launch in any other regions. Prior to this announcement, Nintendo’s only shred of detail was that Miitomo would launch sometime in 2016 but with no hard date attached.
Although Nintendo still hasn’t shared the actual day that they will launch the game, they have stated that preregistration for the Miitomo game by setting up a Nintendo account will be available to users in the UK and Ireland starting from February 17th. In addition to helping users in those two regions become the first to know about when Miitomo launches, Nintendo is also launching a rewards program called “My Nintendo” that will launch alongside Miitomo next month. This rewards program gives potentially interested Miitomo users more of an incentive to preregister as Nintendo will be offering them a special Miitomo bonus so long as they sign up for a My Nintendo account between the 17th of this month and the launch of Miitomo next month. While Miitomo has only been confirmed by Nintendo to launch in the UK and Ireland next month, the My Nintendo rewards program will launch in multiple countries beyond the UK and Ireland, including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, France, Belgium, Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Luxembourg, Portugal, Italy, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Malta, Greece, Sweden, Estonia, Hungary, Slovenia, Slovakia, Romania, Lithuania, Latvia, Russia, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and Brazil.
