This information comes from Nintendo’s investors briefing as stated by president Tatsumi Kimishima…

As for Miitomo, our first priority was to bring more consumers around the world in contact with Nintendo entertainment. Items are available as in-game purchases for consumers who want to deepen their experience, but we have designed Miitomo so that it is possible to have plenty of fun enjoying this new mode of communication even without making in-game purchases.

As a result, users are enjoying Miitomo across the globe, with over 75% of users outside of Japan at present.

We expect this percentage to rise even higher in the future as we consider service expansions to South America and Asia.

We believe this shows that Nintendo has made real progress in advancing our smart device business on a global scale.

We will follow Miitomo by releasing new applications using the Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing IPs globally, and our plan has not changed in terms of releasing around five titles by March 2017.

Yesterday, we announced that we will follow Miitomo with Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing, two new applications based on our IPs, as the next steps in our smart device business.

We will provide more details about these applications closer to the launch period, but I will provide a brief description of both of them today.

The first IP is Fire Emblem.

Fire Emblem is a pioneering role-playing simulation game series, combining the tactical elements of a simulation game with the character customization elements of a role-playing game.

It is also well known by the catchphrase “tough-to-beat simulation.” This high-quality simulation game depicts intense battles in a sword-and-sorcery world inhabited by unique and charming characters, making it well-loved by fans.

To kick off this new business, Nintendo recently released our first application for smart devices, Miitomo.

In Miitomo, the user creates a character likeness called a Mii that sparks conversations with the user’s friends on a wide range of topics, letting you discover things you never knew about your close friends. This is a unique application focused on communication.

I have explained this on some occasions in the past as well, but Nintendo’s smart device business has three purposes.

First, we want to use smart devices to maximize the number of people who come into contact with Nintendo IP.

Next, of course we aim for the smart device business to be profitable on its own.
Furthermore, we want to create synergy with the dedicated video game system business to realize the full potential of our entire business.


Miitomo has been updated with some new collaboration content from Splatoon. For a look at the various items, check out the video below.
