Nintendo's first smartphone title, Miitomo, will launch in the UK and the U.S. in March this year. 

The app will be available on iOS and Android smart devices, and will debut alongside Nintendo's new My Nintendo rewards scheme. 

Those looking to stay ahead of the curve can preregister for Miitomo from February 17. Anyone who preregisters by creating a Nintendo Account will be the among the first to hear about the availability of Miitomo when it lands later this year.

The app is being billed as a "social experience" that lets users interact with their friends using Mii characters. 

"By answering questions in Miitomo, users will be able to discover surprising information and secrets about their friends," explained Nintendo. 

"[They'll be able to] share their experiences with others easily by taking and sharing photos featuring their Mii using the Miitomo feature."

Miitomo is the first of five smartphone apps Nintendo plans on releasing by March 2017, and is the result of a partnership it struck up with mobile outfit DeNA back in March 2015.
