Nintendo now has "My Nintendo", a reboot of their rewards program.

They have split the types of coins that you can earn into two types. Gold points to reward players for buying games digitally from their e-shop. Platinum Points for signing into your Nintendo accounts on a regular basis.

They seem to be offering more Platinum Points for users of their new mobile app, Miitomo, which launched on March 31, 2016. I am not sure if it is worth my time to get this, as I am still not sure what I can do with this app, and how much real life social interaction is required. (I am resentful that I even have to carry a smart phone because it implies that people other than Husband will call and talk to me. I carry it for emergencies. Half the time I forget about it and leave it at home.)

The only reward that I am remotely interested in is the "My Nintendo Picross: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess". It is a whopping 1000 Platinum Points. Even though I have a deadline of 10-1-2016 to scrape that together, I might end up crying on October 2nd instead. (If they wanted Gold digital points, it would take less than a month...LOL.)

DAMN YOU NINTENDO!!! [Shakes fist at sky.]

Unrelated note: I am marathon playing Fire Emblem Fates. I like it very much. I am soooo not a tactician and will publicly admit that I am playing it on Phoenix mode (so super easy you can't lose mode). I am enjoying the story more than the game play at this point, and this game is a good way for people who never played a Fire Emblem game to become interested in the Fire Emblem series. I would buy all of the related Amiibos, but I am not confident I would be able to find them at a reasonable price.

Get Miitomo! I don't know what the hell the point of it is but sometimes my Mii asks me questions? Then our Miis can be PALS if I can figure out how that works.

Update: I got 1,000 platinum points in no time. Miitomo makes it relatively easy. The Zelda Picross tutorial section is painfully slow.

Also, you might want to check out PixlCross on the Wii U - picross puzzles with a picross maker.

Looks like the only way to be Miitomo friends is through Facebook friends, Twitter followers, or face-to-face (both users press the same symbol on the screen at the same time).

Your Mii will talk to friends - your Mii will say your name & your preferred greetings & good byes. It appears there are no restrictions, so feel free to make your Mii a disgusting potty mouth, ha!

EDIT: OK, so just followed KJames. Now follow me! Don't worry, I pretty much never tweet anything, so I won't be clogging up your feed.
