Nintendo’s first social app for smart devices, Miitomo, will be released in North America on March 31.

Users need to sign up for a Nintendo Account at Miitomo.com before March 31 to get an email letting them know the Miitomo app is available for download. Those who preregister also receive Platinum Points for the My Nintendo Rewards program.

“With Miitomo, Nintendo takes its first step into the world of smart devices,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “Miitomo brings the special Nintendo charm and polish that people around the world love to an entirely new format and audience.”
