Pour one out for Miitomo, which shuts its doors after today

Miitomo, Nintendo's first smartphone app, is finally closing shop after a little over two years. The app launched with the promise of making your Mii's more interactive and it barely achieved that. While I had some fun with Miitomo, I could...

Nintendo is pulling the plug on Miitomo

Oh Miitomo, you were too pure and lacking in engaging content for this world. Less than two years after its debut, Nintendo has confirmed it is ending Miitomo, the once popular but not so much anymore social networking app. Despite pulling ...

Miiverse: may we never forget

In the last issue we looked back at various spooky mythos in video games, PC Gamer's continuing unprofessional attitude towards a plea for help, and the topic of death itself! However, for this issue we'll be mourning the death of the Miive...

Video game mashups to brighten up your day

I am fond of a video game mashup or two, so I was stoked when I heard 2 Mello (the composer for 2064: Read Only Memories) was releasing a Streets of Rage mashup album this week. When it came out on Tuesday, I downloaded it right away for li...

So what's up with the ending to Miitopia?

The 3DS’s days may be numbered, but the plucky little handheld isn’t ready to call it quits just yet. Today it’s seeing the release of two new first-party games in Hey! Pikmin and Miitopia. Both are cute, late-in-the-game ...

Nintendo kinda, sorta kept its big gay promise

Tomodachi Life is one of the strangest games to come out of Nintendo and, when it launched, it became a lightning rod for stupid controversy over the supposed removal of same-sex relationships from the game. A misunderstanding as ...

Review: Miitopia

You know what puts a smile on my face? Watching Joan Rivers dressed as a princess use a big wad of cash to “Zsa-Zsa” a turkey with a face on its butt named “Twerkey.” That’s funny, and it’s just one of th...

Miitopia is very much Tomodachi Life: The RPG

I’m several hours into Miitopia, the new RPG for the Nintendo 3DS releasing at the end of the month, but I’m already thinking I should start over. Not because I’ve made any mistakes as that so far is impossible to do. I wa...

Who is in your Miitopia squad?

After sitting on my 3DS for the past few days, I finally got around to starting up the Miitopia demo. It's a bit of a beefy demo, allowing me to traverse what I assume is much of the first land of the game, powering up my squad to level 6 w...

What do you think of Nintendo's mobile strategy so far?

Remember when Nintendo laughed at the idea of coming into the mobile space? Well, now they have three games under their belt. Here's a brief look at the three experiments released so far, all of which take three wildly different approaches.

Miitopia sounds like actual hell

Are you tired of Miis yet? Nintendo sure hopes you aren't, as Miitopia was announced at the end of today's Nintendo Direct. There are not a lot of known details on what the game will be, apart from it not being another mobile spin-off....

Japanese teens, um, rap about Miitomo

This is...something. Non-English rap has always rung weird to me. It's like that hit Italian song that's meant to sound like hit American music, but the singer is just stringing together nonsense sounds. There's something uncanny about it....

Nintendo claims that it's not selling your Miitomo info

All this time we all kind of assumed Nintendo was blatantly selling all our personal info from Miitomo, but apparently that's not the case -- at least, according to the publisher itself. Responding to a Kotaku article, Nintendo issued the f...

New My Nintendo rewards include Miitomo outfits

When I woke up this morning to an email from my friend that simply said "new My Nintendo rewards!" I almost flipped out. "What could Nintendo possibly have added? More original games like Zelda Picross? More lost DS titles? No, it's just cl...

Miitomo is getting a pretty big update in Japan

Miitomo is doing very well over in Japan (and everywhere else people feel like loading it up on their device), and Nintendo seems to want to capitalize on that success while it's hot. They're planning a new update for the Japanese version "...
