Platinum Points (and Gold Points) are part of the new reward system Nintendo is also introducing alongside all of the above. You'll earn them by interacting with and buying Nintendo games, apps or services, and then use them on future discounts.
Nintendo has yet to set a date for Miitomo's launch, but anyone who pre-registers will be notified when the app hits the iOS and Android stores.
