Since its launch, many have been wondering why Nintendo has held back from offering video game-related clothing in Miitomo. We have no idea. You can quickly earn a Mario hat, but that’s about it really.
Well, that’s about to change. Nintendo is readying its first batch of Splatoon-themed gear for the app.
Mark your calendars. From April 27th through May 29th, users will be able to unlock stuff like inkling shoes, shorts, t-shirts and hairstyles through the app’s Miitomo Drop mini-game. If that isn’t enough, squid pins will also be redeemable using regular coins in the Miitomo Shop. This should please fans of the Splatoon game. Nintendo is even running a competition on Twitter. If enough people retweet its special hashtag, everyone will gain access to the Splatoon wigs, for free. But if you want an ink tank you’ll need to spend My Nintendo Platinum Points, which you get by completing missions in Miitomo. As you can see, Nintendo is really making a big deal about this and it hopes you make a big deal about it too.
Splatoon has been a popular game for Nintendo and it is a perfect fit for Miitomo, which encourages you to frequently dress up your Mii and take “Miifotos.” Don’t miss out on all this cool stuff.
