First Nintendo Mobile Game Launches This Week

Following its launch in Japan earlier this month, Nintendo’s first smartphone game/app Miitomo will debut in the United States on March 31, the company announced today.

The “free-to-start” game, as Nintendo calls it, was a big hit in Japan, having reached 1 million downloads in its first three days in Japan. It also reached the No. 1 spot for free apps on the App Store and Google Play.


Nintendo will be hoping it can repeat that success later this week when it debuts in the US.

“With Miitomo, Nintendo takes its first step into the world of smart devices,” Nintendo marketing executive Scott Moffitt said in a statement. “Miitomo brings the special Nintendo charm and polish that people around the world love to an entirely new format and audience.”
