Let’s Talk #44: Early Miitomo and My Nintendo thoughts

Nintendo launched two important things outside of Japan this week: Miitomo and My Nintendo. For the uninitiated, Miitomo is Nintendo’s very first mobile app while My Nintendo is the company’s brand new rewards service.

Both of these have been out for a few days now. Have you had a chance to try either of them out? If so, what are your thoughts thus far? No matter how you feel, let us know in the comments below!

Highlights from last week’s topic: What do you think of Pokemon GO?

Following its release in Europe and North America, Miitomo has now been downloaded by 3 million users worldwide.

Based on a report from market-tracking firm Sensor Tower (as relayed by GamesBeat), Miitomo is currently the most-downloaded game for iPhone and iPad in the United States. Even though it’s a free download, it’s an impressive feat for a title that only just launched today.

With its initial success, Sensor Tower believes that Miitomo could surpass 200,000 downloads on the iPhone alone after 24 hours given averages for past apps that have topped the charts. Another 20,000 downloads would likely stem from the iPad. Of course, this doesn’t account for how Miitomo has done on Android.

The Pokemon GO beta test has recently started in Japan and as such, a select group of people is currently testing the game. However, while the app doesn’t work if you’re outside Japan and not part of the beta, someone was able to rip some of the game’s music and upload it to Youtube. Give the following playlist a listen – it includes remixes of some very familiar Pokemon themes.
