Good night, sweet prince. Or Prince.

After two years of questions, Miitomo will be closing its doors.

The communication app, Nintendo's first foray into the mobile market, will terminate service at midnight Pacific time on May 9. In-app purchases have been turned off as of today.

A full list of items affected by the closure is available on the game's microsite.

Very sad news. I really likd Miitomo. I bought a cheap android phone just so I could play it. My main phone runs Windows 10 Mobile, so I cant regularly use Nintendo's apps.

At least we know what RFN's next RetroActive will be after the Farewell WiiWare - Not Rigged Edition! :)

Strange that Nintendo is shutting it down so soon. You'd think with all the in-app purchases it would be profitable enough to keep going, even if not a big moneymaker. Surprised they didn't give more advance notice as to the shutdown of the in-app store. I assume the game will be completely unplayable when Nintendo shuts it down? It'd be something if someone could download the required data/assets and keep it going in some way. As a curio if nothing else.

Twas a cute little curiosity. But there was nothing interesting for me to hold on to after a few weeks of daily log-ins.

Odd timing-- I actually just started playing it again.

I really liked racking up coins to get my mii some fun outfits for Miifotos.  Gonna miss doing that.

I still pop into Miitomo every day. I should have stopped ages ago since no one else I know is send messages or anything. I couldn’t pull myself away from it because of some weird urge to spend three minutes a day earning Nintendo coins. The entire app closing willing force my hand.

I did like the special outfits you could get for your mii, like the Pirate and Ninja ones, or the tie-ins like Mario and fire Emblem.


Can't help but feel this isn't the end for the concept, just moving it over to their online plan. Would be cool if it came with the online subscription on Switch, maybe allowing you free outfits as a kickback for paying for the sub.

I guess James Jones will no longer be my daddy.
