miitomo-candyNintendo’s first mobile app, Miitomo, showed a lot of promise at the start, but later stats showed that gamers had stopped playing the game in droves. It has been suggested that the lack of progression is something that could have caused gamers to get bored fast, but the good news is that Nintendo has an update that gamers could be interested in.

In a teaser for an upcoming update in the game, Nintendo revealed that they would be introducing a Candy Drop mini-game within the Miitomo game itself. For those wondering what this game will be about, basically if you’ve played the game for a while, chances are you might have earned yourself some “candy” pieces from other mini-games. Candy Drop is essentially a way for gamers to spend their unused candy.

Prior to this, the candy could only be used to unlock extra answers from your friends. However with the upcoming update, Nintendo will let gamers use those candies for in-game upgrades. This is a good move by Nintendo, especially for players who have managed to accumulate a lot of candy but didn’t really have that much use for it.

No word on when the update will be released, but if it is currently being teased, we suppose there’s a good chance that we will be seeing its release in the near future.
