Nintendo's first big push into the mobile market isn't going that well. Its first title, "Miitomo," isn't exactly what fans were expecting.
Players can make a custom avatar, like the ones from the Wii and 3DS, to communicate with other players. But Nintendo was careful to avoid calling "Miitomo" an actual "game"; it sounds like a social network more than anything else.
The company had promised a game would be out by the end of the year, but now it's saying "Miitomo" won't come out until March 2016.
