Nintendo’s first mobile game Miitomo hits the U.S. on March 31

You may have been a little disappointed when Nintendo launched Miitomo, its first mobile game, only in Japan. The limited launch was even more upsetting for Nintendo fans when you factored in just how highly-anticipated its entrance into the mobile app market was. Thankfully, you won’t have to wait much longer to play the game, though, as Miitomo is set to launch in the U.S. on March 31.

The app will be available on both Android and iOS, and will offer users the option to import a Mii from the Wii U or a 3DS using a QR code. The company is also launching My Nintendo on March 31, a program that will reward you for buying games digitally and using Nintendo apps.

Miitomo is all about building your own Mii, and then answering the questions Nintendo poses. Normally, the questions are meant to be interesting or funny, so that you’ll share both the question and the answer with all your friends. In theory, the social aspect will spark more comments and reactions. The more conversations you take part in, the more coins you get. The coins can be used to buy clothes and accessories for your Mii. You can unlock some of the rarer items by playing a pinball-style mini game, which itself is unlocked with coins, or — you guessed it — real money.

Another big part of the app is Miifoto, which basically lets you take photos of your Mii in different poses, with different backgrounds, or with backgrounds that you’ve imported. These shots are perfect for sharing on social media.

Nintendo is banking on the addictive qualities of the game to make Miitomo a success. The app has already been downloaded a million time in Japan, which is a good indication of its potentially success. It remains to be seen how well Miitomo will do internationally, but Nintendo fans are a passionate bunch.

You can pre-register for the app on Nintendo’s site here.
