Finally, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime has commented on the impact he expects from Miitomo.He believes Miitomo is the beginning of something special as it will help people break the ice between them. People will be more encouraged to call each other than to simply send a text message. This is because you can call your friend and if he or she is not available, you can still talk to their Mii.
“We know that many people have established habits with other social apps and services. We want to do something different. Maybe the best way to consider this is looking at your Mii as an intermediary. For example, if you’re on the phone talking to a friend, and that friend says of a mutual friend, ‘Hey, you’ll never guess what Chris told me.’ That person on the other end of the phone is your Mii. He’s working for you.
We expect people’s experience with Miitomo to be a rewarding one in its own right. But at the same time, it’s also a way to have them engage—or reengage—with Nintendo. The way they get involved with My Nintendo will reward them both figuratively and literally down the road. So Miitomo gets people involved with their friends. And one of those friends is Nintendo.”
