Nintendo to launch mobile app for Mii's

Nintendo is to launch an app that will let you use your Mii avatar on social media.

Satoru Iwata told Japanese newspaper Nikkei that it is expected to be fully revealed in the next month or so and will allow users to load their Mii character and snap a user icon.

"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.

"We intend to develop products that will allow customers to identify with Nintendo products and make people pay attention to Nintendo games."

We should find out more soon about how Nintendo plans to integrate Mii characters with smartphone functionality, but as usual it seems Nintendo isn't 100 percent keen on embracing something which other companies embraced a long time ago.
