Miitomo Adds Direct Messaging In Major Update


With Miitomo nearing 15 million downloads worldwide, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima has announced that the free-to-start communication app will shortly receive “a major update.”

While preparations are underway to allow friend relations to be carried over to Super Mario Run, Nintendo promise that the update will “completely transform Miitomo” by adding a “unique message feature.”

“In order to enjoy Miitomo with your family and friends, we are planning a major update soon that will completely transform Miitomo by making communication with your friends even more fun,” Kimishima revealed to shareholders.

“This update will introduce a unique message feature that lets you use your Mii character’s facial expressions and voice to send any message you want in expressive one-on-one communication. We are also planning additional features.”

Miitomo is now available worldwide on the App Store and Google Play.
