Granted, the 'final product' doesn't look like anything worth getting too worked up about, but still the concept's something a lot of Nintendo fans could get down with.
Miitomo's a free-to-start social experience built around Nintendo's Mii avatars. Users craft and wardrobe themselves (tapping into an array of virtual items) in Mii form while mingling with friends on the 'My Nintendo' network via Q&A mode.
Users can create Miis using Miitomo's editor, which is created in such a way that pics taken with a smartphone's camera or imported via Nintendo 3DS, or Wii U through a QR code can be re-worked back on the editor.
Nintendo additionally released a statement that a new virtual store with an amassed catalog of 2,000 games (purchasable w/Nintendo account for play with 3DS or Wii U) will be opening March 31st.

The amount of frustration endured by any gamer out there that has to deal with an accidental restart, an unsaved 'boss kill' before dying, is enough to crush the most reasonable temperaments.
