App description: Think you know your friends? Guess again!

Miitomo is an app from Nintendo that brings out a side of you your friends have never seen before!

How? By making a Mii of yourself that's your personal go-between!

Ever wonder what fun details make you...YOU? Your Mii will find out by asking you questions about yourself!

Want your friends to know all about these little insights into your likes, dislikes, or just what you're thinking lately? Your Mii will go visit your friends' Mii characters and tell them!

Then your Mii will ask your friends for fun details about them...and tell YOU everything. Your friends' Mii characters will also visit you when you play!

Miitomo is a new way to bring you and your friends together like never before. Would you expect anything less from Nintendo?

(Did we mention that your Mii actually speaks too? Anything you or your friends say about themselves!)

Details about Miitomo:

Make a Mii to Look Like You

Miitomo features the Mii characters that debuted on Nintendo's Wii system. Choose from a wide library of facial features to make your Mii look just like you. You can also quickly create one by using a smart device's camera.

After creating your Mii and giving it a nickname, you can further customize how it speaks and even how it moves and behaves.

Your Mii Is Your Social Go-Between

In Miitomo, your Mii and your friends' Mii characters act as social go-betweens. Your Mii will ask you questions about those little details about yourself you'd never think to ask. Your friends' Mii characters will do the same.

Your Mii and their Mii characters tell each other about these details, so you and your friends learn fun things about each other that you'd never find out without your Mii characters!

Dress Your Mii However You Want

Costumes, streetwear, formal fashion, every-day style-you can find it all in the Miitomo shop. Mix and match clothing items to create looks that your Mii will wear when visiting friends, hanging out in your room, and appearing in Miifotos.

You can get clothing items with Miitomo coins, which you earn by playing Miitomo. You can also purchase Miitomo coins.

Win Prizes From Miitomo Drop

Miitomo features a minigame in which you drop a Mii into a play field, and then watch it bounce around as it falls toward a variety of platforms. You'll win a prize based on where it lands. Some clothing items are available only in Miitomo Drop.

Note: To play Miitomo Drop, you need Miitomo coins, which you earn by playing Miitomo or by using game tickets, which you can get as a daily bonus, among other ways. You can also purchase Miitomo coins.

Make Your Mii a Star with Miifotos

In Miitomo, you can create images called Miifotos. You can let your creativity go wild, putting your Mii and friends' Mii characters in images you make from a library of stamps, fonts, and backgrounds. You can also use photos from a smart device's camera as backgrounds for Miifoto creations.

You can share your Miifoto creations on social media, such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Eli's comments:
More of a social network-y thing and less of a game, but figured it deserved a thread regardless. If you're looking for friends, check this thread- http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=284876

Most people have moved on from that abomination called GameCenter. I've signed out never to sign back in. WiiU and 3DS for me from now on.

ATTENTION: for those who need help adding friends

I'm posting this everywhere

I found out you have to both be following each other in order to add them as a friend.
Also once you are both following each other on Twitter you must go inside the game and choose
"Update Twitter data"
Everyone that you are mutually following will show up.

I've been trying to figure this out on my own since no one figured it out and shared yet.
Hope this helps

I've yet to find a dildo in the dumpsters.

A few strange things about this so far-

It seems like if you've jailbroken your phone it straight up won't work, most/all of the people I've seen complaining about crashing also have jailbroken. Hard to say if this is some kind of weird security measure Nintendo/DeNA is taking or if it's an actual bug.

It's real weird that there's no friend codes. Every other Nintendo system out there has such a weirdly elaborate friend code system, but the one app that could actually use some kind of friend code / QR code Snapchat-style "add me" thing doesn't have it. What a strange oversight. Seems to add someone you both need to be mutual Twitter followers or Facebook friends, which kind of sucks.

Also if you're looking to post friend trades, do it in this thread so we can keep all that in one place- http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=284876

The Twitter connection is borked. Facebook and face-to-face works though, as well as the QR scanning.

Twitter worked for me, you just have to add the connection, wait a bit, then refresh your connections. I wonder if it isn't getting overloaded right now.
