Nintendo of Japan has announced a release date for their first dedicated mobile app, Miitomo, which will now launch on March 17 in the country.

The app is due for release in other regions this month too, but no specific date has been announced outside of Japan just yet. We’ll be sure to let you know when that happens.

In the meantime, don’t forget that pre-registrations are open on the Miitomo website. Registering will trigger an email to let you know when the app is released in your region, plus you’ll be able to create your Nintendo Account, which replaces the decommissioned Club Nintendo.
