3DS will launch with a 'Mii Maker' application that lets users create new Mii characters by taking photos.
Once the photo's been taken and the Mii rendered on you 3DS, you can go and edit it to make it more closely resemble the real deal.
"Users can either import Mii characters from their Wii systems using an SD Memory Card or use the camera to take a picture of a person and have an automatic Mii character created," Nintendo explained.
"Users can even save their Mii characters to an SD Memory Card as pictures, which enables them to be used any way a digital photo would for personal use, such as a profile picture on social-networking sites."
