Nintendo’s first mobile app, Miitomo, has a very simple and straightforward concept. Make and register a Mii, answer questions, and it talks to other players’ Miis. Registration for the app is now open and can be done at MyNintendo. A Nintendo Account is required, and those who complete pre-registration will receive platinum points for the new My Nintendo rewards program.
Platinum points are earned by playing mobile apps (like Miitomo) and are used to earn certain goods from My Nintendo.
Sounds simple enough. But there’s one catch: those points expire six months after My Nintendo begins. Miitomo, and My Nintendo, launch for North America and Europe this coming March, giving players until September to use their free points.
