An announcement came across not long ago that Miitomo will be ending on May 9th. Like many apps, it experienced an initial rush of players, but fizzled to a dedicated few after a few months. Still, we had some fun times fooling around with answers and making silly pictures (which was my main reason for sticking around). First, a few factual links:
With that in mind, let's share our Miifotos, memories, and reflect on the weird answers we gave. Answers regarding...

...blooming flowers...


...bread preferences...


...and reactions to the passage of time.


Thanks for the warm memories, friends!

Sadly, animated GIFs were a bit too much.

When pancake outfits made for sillier times.


When you've been out inking too much.


When... nah, I got nothing.

RIP Miitomo. I would pop onto it daily in the vain hope that the platinum coins would be worth a poo poo someday

OP I think I have you added. I'm Jack in the game, I've got a gold suit and a lime on my head

Oh, hi there!

Yeah I have a bunch of those dumb coins. What do you think they will do with them once the app closes? Transfer them to Pocket Camp?

Two of your links at the top have the "..." in the URL itself.

That said, even with the Switch thread collectively crying when this was announced earlier, I still have no idea what this is and totally missed the boat.

How I always know if I'm caught up with new posts since I last checked...




I'll miss this app, and going through my Miifotos reminded me of all these dumb ways I'd use Miifoto to memorialize the inconsequential moments of my life.


The time I replayed Twilight Princess




The time I finally just admitted to the world in general that I suck at taking selfies




The time I played BOTW




The time I conquered an old demon and watched that episode of Star Trek that scared me as a kid (it was great)




The time I played BOTW again




The time it was Thanksgiving




And then I just kind of enjoy Miis in Peril

I love each and every one of these! This app was great for tackling boredom on:

foggy days


days with not much else going on (or whatever was going on here)


and nights like tonight. Again, sorry about the catchphrase - this was my only Saturday Night pic.

I just discovered this thread, and I'm yet another person with OCD who made an effort to play it every day to maximize my coins and rewards. And I'm sad to see this app go.

It's going to sting hard in May, especially if Nintendo does not tease any sort of replacement app before it ends (which would be a good time to tease anything, considering that E3 is June 12-14).

Thanks! Your pics, heck everyone had great pics in that app. If they do another social app, I really hope that they either improve or expand upon the concept.







Happy Thursday, everyone - feel free to share some more memories or Miifotos!

Dog, dog! Er, I mean, bark, bark!


I get the feeling that Nintendo is quietly phasing out Miis in general. You can make one on the Switch but it's really just your avatar, it's not used in games as often as they used to be. There's no Mii component in LABO from what I can see, which is a shame.

Not sure if these QR codes can be used to import Miis to the 3DS and WiiU. (Too lazy to find out.) I know they can't for the Switch.
