Nintendo has announced that Miitomo will soon be shut down and will no longer be available from Wednesday 9th May, coming to an end two years after it was released.
The first smartphone app that Nintendo had released for iOS and Android devices, Miitomo had looked to spark one-of-a-kind conversations between Mii characters created by the user and their friends.
“Miitomo will no longer be available as of Wednesday 9th May 2018,” Nintendo confirms. “As a big thank you to everyone who has enjoyed playing Miitomo, we’ve prepared some special events so you can continue having fun until the very end!”
That will see users receive Miitomo coins and game tickets as daily login bonuses, and be encouraged to share their favourite Miifoto on Twitter as well as see all questions in Answer Central ask users about their favourite Miitomo memories.
“Thank you to all our dedicated users for contributing to Miitomo,” the company added. “There’s only a short time left to enjoy playing Miitomo, so please make the most of it by participating in these events!”
