Nintendo's social networking app Miitomo is now available for download in the UK, US and wider Europe. The app is the first product of Nintendo's partnership with mobile developer DeNA, which it announced roughly in mid-March 2015.

Users are able to download the game now on iOS and Android from the App Store and Google Play store. On iOS the app is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. On 29 March Nintendo announced that the game's release would be taking place today (1 April) in the UK, Ireland, France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the United States and Canada.

An official description of the app from Nintendo reads:
