Anyone play Miitomo? ::tumbleweed::
Folks succeeded in tweeting out the Fire Emblem Heroes event 10,000 times, and thus, Nintendo has unlocked a reward for Miitomo — Lucina’s mask. The content is available today, until March 2 at 10:00 PM ET, and all you need to do is log in to grab it.
If only amiibo worked with mobile games, and you could unlock characters from Fire Emblem Heroes or costumes for Miitomo and Super Mario Run that way. The tech wouldn’t be easy to implement, especially for both iOS and Android, but the opportunity to sell more $13 hunks of plastic is there, and would give amiibo more of a point. Since they’re keeping the functionality with the Switch going forward it’s not dead, so hopefully cross-platform amiibo support comes to fruition one day.
In the meantime, you can muse over Nintendo’s current mobile strategy here.
