Nintendo's long-awaited Miitomo is here, and it's pretty much what we expected.

Like Tomodachi Life, Miitomo lets you make a Mii and sets you loose in the world. The big, surprising thing here is that you can play a Nintendo game on your Android phone or iPhone and that it integrates so well with social media.

It's easy to import friends through Twitter and Facebook, or through a My Nintendo account. These friends are about to learn a lot about your deepest, darkest secrets. Your Mii will ask you questions about your favorite things, and then tell all your friends about it. Socializing gets you coins, which you can spend to dress up your Mii. Check out the sick styling of the Polygon crew in the video above. Hot dog dresses, stacks of pancakes and sheer pantslessness are the name of the game.

How fun you find Miitomo might depend on how much you like your friends. Their responses provide most of the humor of the game. There's a little pachinko mode that you can see in the video, in which you can gamble to win fantastic new clothes. It takes zero skill, but like the rest of the game, it's cute as hell.
