Here's what happened when we raided our favourite Nintendo games using Miitomo's Miifoto

Miitomo's great, but let's be honest: it can't compete with Facebook and Twitter as a social network.

Where it comfortably beats all competitors, however, is in that special Nintendo charm it possesses. Miifoto is the best example of this. A light photo editing element in which you can stick Miis in odd situations atop real photos or pre-made backgrounds.

To highlight this, and for our own amusement, we plundered Nintendo's legendary back catalogue and got to work on invading classic games with some Miis.

Nintendo may be moving into the present day with its mobile output, but it's doing so with the same spirit that's led to such glorious successes throughout the years - and that shouldn't be forgotten either.

Posted by Ric Cowley on April 21st, 2016

With its recent Apps for Earth campaign, Apple has partnered with the World Wildlife Fund and a handful of developers to help give something back to the Earth.
