Lets take a trip back to 2006 when the Nintendo Wii first launched here in the states and think about how exciting and enjoyable it was to make a Mii character that looks just like your grandmother or even your family dog; the Wii took the world by storm and more than ten years later, Mii’s are still around and Nintendo is planning on keeping them alive for as long as possible.
If you haven’t heard the unfortunate news, Nintendo’s first mobile app, Miitomo, is officially shutting down next week on May 9, which means that all of those cool clothes and stuff that you have acquired for your Mii character will be gone forever, but Nintendo has sent out a statement to current Miitomo players that talks about an upcoming feature that will let users create/edit Mii characters via a web browser using your Nintendo account:
“With the end of Miitomo service, it will no longer be possible to create or edit Mii characters using Miitomo, but we are planning to add a feature in late May 2018 which will enable you to create and edit Mii characters for your Nintendo account via your web browser of choice.
In order to add this feature, we will be performing system migration maintenance from the end of Miitomo service until late May 2018. During this period, you will not be able to change your Mii character set to your Nintendo Account (including clothes and accessories). Additionally, changes made to the Mii characters for [your] Nintendo Network ID will not be applied to your Nintendo Account Mii character.”
It’s sad to see Miitomo go bye-bye but at least Mii’s will still be alive in some way; let’s see how long Nintendo plans to keep the Mii creation feature alive.
