The app’s official launch trailer was released late last week, in preparation for its Western launch sometime before the end of the month. Miitomo lets users customise their appearance, voice and personality to suit their own. In-game photo studio Miifoto allows users to take in-app photos of their Mii’s in various poses with their friends, and can even create custom birthday images. Users are also be able to pose with their own Mii’s and customise the images with a range of stickers and messages.
Miitomo should be launching sometime this week.
