The successor to Club Nintendo is finally here, and it seems like a solid improvement! The way it works is you can get three different types Coins through completing Missions.

Miitomo (blue) Coins are from using Miitomo. These apparently work as platinum coins as well.
Mushroom (platinum) Coins are from using My Nintendo itself regularly.
Star (gold) Coins are from purchasing eShop games.

(oddly, Gold seems to be more valuable than Platinum, which is why I'm wondering they didn't just go with Silver or something. But I digress)

You can then use your coinage for some choice rewards. Here's the full current list:

Pikmin 3 Add-On Content: Battle Enemies! Stages 7-10 (20 Gold Points)
Metroid Fusion (Wii U) (60 Gold Points)
Super Punch-Out!! (Wii U) (70 Gold Points)
Super Mario 64 (Wii U) (90 Gold Points)
New Super Mario Bros. U Add-On Content: New Super Luigi U (90 Gold Points)

Flipnote Studio 3D (Free!)
My Nintendo Picross: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (1000 Platinum points) (new game!)
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (3DS) (35 Gold Points)
WarioWare: Touched! (3DS) (1000 Platinum Points)

My Nintendo Theme 1: Mario (200 Platinum Points)
My Nintendo Theme 2: Donkey Kong (200 Platinum Points)

15% discount on Super Mario 3D Land (450 Platinum Points)
15% discount on Animal Crossing: New Leaf (450 Platinum Points)
15% discount on The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (600 Platinum Points)
15% discount on The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD (750 Platinum Points)
15% discount on Yoshi's Woolly World (750 Platinum Points)

30% discount on Punch-Out!! (50 Gold Points)
30% discount on Ultimate NES Remix (70 Gold Points)
30% discount on The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D (100 Gold Points)
30% discount on Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (100 Gold Points)
30% discount on Splatoon (140 Gold Points)

Miitomo 1 game ticket (85 Platinum points)
Miitomo Mario Suit (250 Platinum points)
Miitomo 5 game tickets (420 Platinum points)
Miitomo 10 game tickets (250 Platinum points for one time only)

Lots of good stuff to offer, from discounts, VC games (including the first DS VC game on 3DS!), and even new software like Twilight Princess Picross!

I got 250 coins just from doing some basic stuff--signing into Miiverse and eShop (30 platinum apiece once a week), and linking my account to My Nintendo and Facebook. It's a solid starting point towards getting that sweet, sweet Picross game.

All in all, it seems like a good replacement. My only gripe--and it's kind of a biggie--is that it currently doesn't offer any reward for buying physical copies of games. Kinda stings.

Anyway, go nuts and get some Coins! What rewards do you have your eye on?

Why not sign up for a (free) account?
Currently having to get rid of almost everything on my crappy phone because for some reason Nintendo thought it wise to make Miitomo massive in file size.

New system seems great and the website is designed very nicely.

EDIT: Nevermind, getting rid of almost everything still didn't give me enough space. Thanks Nintendo for making an accessible mobile app that everyone can use.

Ugh, same. Google Play doesn't seem to say how big Miitomo actually is, though, so I'm not sure how much I have to delete. EDIT: Says it's 31MB and I have 300+MB free but still won't download. So that's weird. But I deleted about 70MB worth of apps I don't use and now it's working.

On the Google Play store it told me it was about 60mb. Once you actually get it up and running though it downloads another 400+. It's absurd.

That's enormous! What the crap.

I thought Miitomo wasn't ready yet? The site still says coming soon.

Then again, I'm accessing it on my desktop. Is it a mobile-only application?

Yeah it's a mobile only app.

Yep, nabbed it this morning. Once all is said and done in the install file, it's 72.36MB (Android).

Then why the hell is mine so massive? Gonna try redownloading and see what happens, but something went seriously wrong with mine if it is only that big.

Miitomo downloading....76%
"An error has occurred."

Miitomo downloading...0%

So that's a few hundred MB of wasted data. Guess I'll just wait until I get home. Maybe delete some more apps just for good measure.

Just tried to download it again and yep. Still using over 400MB.

I was able to download it over LTE in like 10 seconds, installed and running, but have to wait until after work to really dive in.

EDIT: oh no now it's downloading a whole huge thing... still pretty fast, 50% after about a minute.

EDIT: wow the graphics look really sharp on my 6 Plus, I'm not used to seeing Nintendo's art-style this hi-res!

Yeah of course this releases the ONE (ok, second) time I ever go above my fucking data limit a week top early. Hopefully the shitty wifi at work actually works....

Is there even a way to add eachother on here? NW, my bro, and maybe the few FB people I expect would get this are the only users I could imagine using this with.

@carlosrox I'm told you can only add people through Facebook, Twitter, or in person. So that stinks.

I'm loving this new My Nintendo thing. So many rewards! And is that a digital DS game for 3DS I see? Awesome.

Yeah, Wario's on my "to get" list now.

A couple things to note:

-COINS EXPIRE! Sad but true. You have six months to use them up.
-Games expire too! Well, in the sense that they get removed from the eShop. WarioWare will only be up for a few months, so you gotta stay on top of getting your coins.
-There's a seeecret on the main My Nintendo page. See if you can find it!

I don't really use Twitter, but it seems that in order to add people we need to be following each other on Twitter. Here's my Twitter handle if anyone wants to add me.

I have a Twitter that I hardly ever use but it does come in handy now and again.

Sure is a battery hungry app. I'll have to wait for friends to sign up for it to make any sense I guess.

The group of us NWers on there are having some fun right now. Hop to it!

Downloaded Miitomo this morning! Seems cute enough. I'm wondering how long I'll keep it on my phone for. More fun once you get more friends? I've only got one so far.
