For years, fans and analystsexpecting to see the ports of popular Mario titles or a portable version of the Wii virtual console games and Wii U. What we got, however, was something completely different. The first Nintendo mobile game was called Miitomo, a strange social question and answer game that revolved around silly jokes, funny hats and the company's cute and customizable Mii avatars.
Now, the game that launched the Nintendo raid on the App Store and Google Play is dying. On Wednesday, the company announced that Miitomo servers will be permanently closed on May 9 this year, just a little over two years after its initial release.
Miitomo was nice, of course, but it was not such a complete game in the traditional sense. Players could create a Mii character and dress it in different outfits, but they did not do much with it: it was mostly a conduit that the game used to ask users questions and share their answers with friends. They could also play Pachniko minigames to win garments. It was like a delayed text message system with discussion messages.
It was a fun social experience, but their days are numbered: Nintendo has already suspended the sale of Miitomo coins, a digital currency that players could use to buy new suits, and the game will stop functioning completely in May. .
However, players who start the game from time to time will get a final goodbye: daily log-in bonuses have been increased to 2,000 Miitomo coins and five tickets to the game. If you still need an adorable Nintendo game in your pocket after May, there is always.
