Actually, the headline for this post probably should read: "can someone please explain Nintendo's first mobile game, Miitomo, as well as its Club Nintendo replacement and new account system to me?"
That seemed kind of silly, though, so I opted what you see above.
Still, the fact is that even after having more than 24 hours to think about it, I still can't say I "get" the three upcoming products Nintendo announced during its investor's briefing in Tokyo yesterday.
Sure, I understand that Miitomo, the Japanese giant's first mobile effort, is some sort of Tomodachi Life-esque communication app, but what exactly does that mean?
As for the Club Nintendo replacement I mentioned earlier, that would be a little thing called "My Nintendo." Based on what I read about it yesterday, it sounds like an expanded version of Club Nintendo that rewards (with swag, discounts on future titles and even DLC) people for playing, and not just buying, the company's games.
Finally, there's something called the "Nintendo Account," which I guess is the next iteration of what's currently known as NNID?
The last one is the "product" I know the least about, so please feel free to educate me if you've got a better grasp on it. Actually, feel free to educate me on any of these upcoming efforts--all of which are set to be released in March of next year, I believe--if you think my descriptions above are a bit off.
Anyway, based on the little I know and understand of all of the above, I'm pretty excited. Or at least I'm pretty intrigued--especially in the "My Nintendo" and "Nintendo Account" creations. That's just my opinion on the matter, though; what do all of you think about it?
