Nintendo Making Mii Smartphone App
Ashley Allen / 3 years ago
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has confirmed that the company is working on an app to allow Wii U and 3DS owners to use Mii avatars and the Miiverse social network on their smartphones.
“It would be fun for players to use their Mii characters as icons on social media,” Iwata told Japan’s Nikkei Business Daily. “We are currently developing an application that will allow users to do that.”
This marks a change in strategy for Nintendo, a company that has demonstrated reticence to enter the mobile market in the past. “In the past, I have opposed making smartphone and tablet versions of Nintendo titles,” Iwata said. “Prices for content aimed at smartphones and tablets are falling quickly. I am still wary of the category.”
