Miitomo

A lot of people are playing with this right now (it came out outside of Japan on Thursday), and you’re hearing a lot of “what’s the point here,” and the thing is that there isn’t one, really. It’s just a way to spend some time looking at funny things, with a light level of interaction (answering questions, and reading answers from friends) that doesn’t demand too much of your time. Oh, and there’s outfits too. The best feature by far are the photos you can take with your Miis (and Miis of your friends) posing on top of any image. It’s the kind of thing that I would normally imagine that, although I’ve been having a lot of fun with it, I’d probably quickly lose interest (as much as I loved playing Tomodachi Collection, which influenced this, I did drop off after a few weeks), but if they can continuously add new features or mini-games, it might end up keeping me checking in for a while longer.
