We play Celebrity Miitomo with indie devs at EVO 2017

About a year and a half ago, Nintendo graced our humble planet with one of the best dumb little apps known to man: Miitomo. In Miitomo, you create an avatar, dress it up, and then interact with your real-world friends by asking them silly questions generated by the app.Shortly after its launch, I decided Miitomo questions would be fun to ask people in real-life. And thus, the best dumb little app begot the best dumb little interview series on the planet: Celebrity Miitomo.

Now for the first time ever, Celebrity Miitomo is available as a video series and we’re happy to share the first episode with you. I, Marcus Garrett, your long-haired and stuttering host, went to Las Vegas to EVO 2017, one of the biggest fighting game tournaments in the world. I bummed around the indie booth and interviewed the developers of some of my favorite games from the selection.

Watch as I put the people behind GUTS, At Sundown, and Mystic Melee on the spot with wacky and weird questions from Miitomo. Enjoy!
