Miitomo release date: When is Miitomo coming out?

Not only is the game itself pretty disappointing after we’d got our hopes up about the arrival of Mario on our smartphones, but it’s not even going to be available until March 2016, despite Nintendo’s original claim that it would release its first smartphone game before the end of 2015. We’ll update this article when we find out more about its release date.

Update 17 Feb: Nintendo is allowing fans to pre-register for Miitomo by creating a Nintendo Account using their Nintendo Network ID, social Network accounts or email address. You cansign up for a Nintendo account and pre-register for Miitomo here.
