Nintendo building a Mii app for smartphones While Nintendo has notoriously kept their popular first party games off of smartphones and attached to their consoles, it appears that the Mii avatars will be making an appearance on your mobile device.
"In the past, I have opposed making smartphone and tablet versions of Nintendo titles. Prices for content aimed at smartphones and tablets are falling quickly," said Nintendo president Satoru Iwata. "I am still wary of the category. We intend to develop products that will allow customers to identify with Nintendo products and make people pay attention to Nintendo games.

"For example, some Nintendo game consoles incorporate Mii, which creates a digital avatar to represent players. It would be fun for players to use their Mii characters as icons on social media. We are currently developing an application that will allow users to do that."

There are no other known details about the app except that Iwata says it will be released later this year.
