Yesterday (in America), Nintendo announced Miitomo, a communications application for smartphones, which is due to launch in March 2016 (delayed from this year).

The main character of Miitomo is you. First, you create your own Mii.

 

The Mii asks you a variety of questions and communicates your answers with your Friends’ Mii.

 

The people you will be able to communicate with are limited to your friends whom you have registered as Friends. We are designing this communication application to enable Friends to share information comfortably and securely.

 

In this way, instead of the users proactively sending their own messages, Miitomo has a unique characteristic that can be called “friendly communication starters” as your Mii will automatically dispatch the answers you gave to certain questions to your friends.

 

These “friendly communication starters” have an advantage that even the people who are less willing to send messages can easily participate. Another unique characteristic of Miitomo is that you may be able to find out unknown aspects about your friends or unexpected commonalities you share with your friend because Miitomo may pick up the topics that you usually do not discuss but would be willing to answer if asked.

 

What we would like to realize is, through such communication, you will be able to deepen friendly relationships and have more people with whom you can play games.

 

Both My Nintendo and Miitomo will be available in March 2016.

 

For reference, more than 200 million Mii characters have been created on our platforms, which means that many people around the world understand the appeal of Mii.

Kimishima touches on the pay aspect of Miitomo.  Miitomo will be free-to-play, but if you want custom outfits for Miis, you may have to pay for some of the outfits.  Also he says Miitomo will have some game aspects to it besides being a communications app.

Out in Japan, here's the Google Play listing:

In-app Products

$0.99 - $74.99 per item


lol

Anyway, seems like it's pretty much a social, F2P version of Tomodachi Life.

Speaking of Tomodachi, Tomodachi Life QR Codes are compatible with Miitomo:

Tomodachi Life QR Codes will let you bring over a Mii's Tomodachi Life name and/or nickname, Tomodachi Life voice, current Tomodachi Life attire, and Tomodachi Life personality to Miitomo.

Nice, that'll save me from entering all that in. I'll have to gussy myself up pretty and make a new QR code. I watched a video of someone using the Japanese version, and it was really obvious that they were tailoring it after Tomodachi. I guess they practically based it on the game.

NoA will probably add a profanity blacklist.  They don't want bad press from moral guardians.  It's probably one of the reasons why Miitomo didn't launch globally (stress testing Miitomo aside).  NoA and NoE probably need extra time to set up a profanity blacklist.
