Faced with competition from mobile phones and tablets, Nintendo is now expanding out to these devices. Miitomo is the gaming company’s first step into the mobile market.

As a social app, Miitomo uses the Mii characters to interact with other users. Miis are a digital representations of people in a simplified design introduced back in 2006. Nintendo states that there are more than 200 million Mii characters on its gaming systems around the world. New users can create their own Mii or transfer over one they’ve created from their Wii U or Nintendo 3DS consoles through a QR code.

Activities between friends in Miitomo is a unique one: responses to questions becomes an interactive play where users can learn something new about their buddy. The replies don’t have to be text — use a picture or a heart to convey a feeling.

While Miitomo is free to install, users can collect Miitomo coins to buy items through the in-app shop. Redeem coins to upgrade outfits to impress upon their friends, or even don strange attire like a bear, or even a hot dog.

Once a Mii is all dolled up, users can take pictures of their creations and share them on Facebook, Twitter and Instragram through the Miifoto function.

Miitomo is also integrated with the new loyalty program My Nintendo. My Nintendo aims to honour users who take advantage of the company’s products and services. My Nintendo replaces Club Nintendo which closed down in June 2015.

Miitomo launches in March 2016 on Android and Apple iOS devices. To pre-register, visit the Miitomo web site.

Final Fantasy IX coming to PC and mobile devices in 2016

An adventure that draws upon the classic roots of the Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy IX was announced for a PC, iPhone and Android release sometime in 2016. The PC version will be available through Steam.

A carefully crafted plot to kidnap Princess Garnet of Alexandria goes too well for Zidane and the travelling theatre bandit troupe Tantalus. Even though the princess willingly left on her own accord, she and her protector, Steiner, did not expect to pair up with Zidane and explore a world of shrouded in both mist and deceit. Along with a black mage named Vivi, a Burmecian knight Freya, and a young summoner named Eiko, this ragtag team understand their own past and defend their future from the evils orchestrated by the mysterious Kuja.

The unique story of Final Fantasy IX will included improved graphics with high-definition movies, additional achievements, game boosters such as high-speed and no encounter modes, and an auto save function.

Final Fantasy IX was originally released for the PlayStation in 2000. A specific date for when the PC and mobile version of the title will can be purchased was not specified.
