Have you ever looked at the social media out there and thought, "These are cool, but I wish there was a social media platform where I could dress up like a panda and answer bizarre and specific questions about myself." Okay, you probably haven't. But if this sound interesting to you, check out Miitomo, Nintendo's new social media and first mobile app: Miitomo. The app plays similar to Tomodachi Life, a title for 3DS in America (also on DS in Japan exclusively). Tomodachi Life gives the player and island to customize and move Miis to and watch them live and interact together. Miitomo is a social version of Tomodachi life but with fewer mechanics. Instead of a player controlling multiple Miis, users make one Mii to represent themselves. The app is available on iPhone and Android.
