1 st of April already, three months of the year gone. April Fools Day. I was just saying to my husband that somehow it seems that there are less and less funny jokes going on on this day that there used to be. Or they played a prank on me and I didn’t even notice, that would be worse! Did someone manage to play a prank on you today? Or did you have great succes teasing someone else?
- I guess the biggest news this week for me was the release of MiiTomo, just yesterday. I was out all day for work, from 6.30 am till 10 pm, so unfortunately I couldn’t download it immediately. When I did I quickly learned one thing: put your notifications on silent. I didn’t and it woke me up several times last night, beeping merrily away. I did give it a try today, but I’m still learning my way around. But what I did see: this can be a huge time sink! There are so many questions to ask or to answer, so many things to read about your online friends. I’ve spent some of my free coins making sure I look presentable!
- I just checked, and after one day it’s already the top free download, not only in the Netherlands, but in America too in the App Store! Awesome right? How are doing in the app? And have you managed to get friends enthusiastic that aren’t Nintendo fans?
- Have you checked out the new My Nintendo Account too? If you’ve linked it to your MiiTomo and your Nintendo ID, some free coins should be waiting for you. You get coins for connecting to Facebook, to Twitter, and you can even get coins for checking into your MiiVerse on your 3DS or WiiU, and into your eShop for a moment. Easy way to gain coins! A very good guide of how to get started in My Nintendo Account is found here on NintendoLife. And don’t forget to download the free Flipnote Studio 3D if you’ve connected your Nintendo ID to the My Nintendo Account before the official release.
- One last thing then: there’s a secret mini game on the My Nintendo site. See the Mario Block in your My Nintendo homepage? It’s a the bottom on the right. click the block, and then you’ll see your Mii on top holding a box. Click it as many times as you can, it gave me 10 coins!
That’s it for today, friends, lots of Nintendo news. I wonder, will you readers who aren’t gamers nor Nintendo enthusiasts, take the opportunity to feel a bit of Nintendo charm on your mobile phone? I’ll be curious to hear what you think! It’s time to get the weekend started, see you next week!
Thanks for the tips! Going to do MyNintendo account today. Will also install Miitomo on husband’s phone – that’ll be interesting! Will he find it captivating or annoying???
Best make sure you put the sound notifications off, otherwise you’ll drive him crazy!
I’ve been enjoying the MiiTomo app more than I thought I would!
I wish I had a phone that supported MiiTomo. A whole slew of people I know are already using it and doing strange and wonderful things and here I am all left out. Boo. Teaches me to buy a Windows phone circa 2013.
Yeah, another reader has the same problem, Windows phone..pity!
I really need to replace my phone. I think it will be sooner than later.
Whoo, boy, Miitomo. I’m surprised about the amount of people who got it. I mean, you’d think that such a game would only be bought by dedicated Nintendo fans. Nope! I’ve seen loads of people on Twitter posting silly pictures of it on there.
It’s the charm of Nintendo doing its thing, I’m sure of it. And that’s why going into such things on mobile is such s clever idea for Nintendo! It will bring people in who had forgotten all about ever owning a DS when they were young, or for their kids!
