Nintendo has announced that Mii creation and editing will be available on browsers starting at the end of this month.
The news came in the latest, and presumably final, Miiitomo update for Nintendo’s mobile social network app. Since Miitomo was Nntendo’s method for adjusting your Nintendo online ID’s associated Mii at your leisure, Mii editing is now going to simply be browser-based for people who want to change their Mii’s looks.
Miitomo service is ending on May 9, a little over two years since its release. Outgoing Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima stated during the recent financial briefing that Nintendo has failed to achieve a satisfactory profit from their mobile offerings. Nintendo has also said that online details for the Switch should be arriving this month.
I don’t think Miis are very well intertwined with Nintendo’s brand identity anymore, but I can’t imagine they get rid of them. Not sure what their plan is for the future of the avatar figures.
