Nintendo to Release Smartphone App With Mii in 2015

Game maker delays app from this year to polish it more

During a question-and-answer session for the financial results of the 2014-2015 fiscal year's second quarter, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata reported that his company is developing an app for smart devices that uses Mii avatars. Nintendo had originally planned to release the app this year, but decided to release it next year to develop it further.

Iwata explained that when Nintendo releases a smart device app for the first time, he thinks it will draw the attention of many people who will try downloading it. Rather than release something half-finished for them this year, Nintendo plans on polishing the app a little bit more.

Iwata confirmed in January that Nintendo plans to release some application on smart devices "that is capable of attracting consumer attention and communicating the value of our entertainment offerings." Pokémon Company International launched a Camp Pokémon app last month.
