Today Nintendo released a mini Nintendo Direct surrounding the western release of Tomodachi Life. The game is like a cross between Animal Crossing and The Sims, using Nintendo’s Mii characters. The game will launch in North America and Europe on June 6. Tomodachi Life was a huge success in Japan, selling more than 5.5 million copies. According to Scott Moffitt, this unique launch gives Nintendo 3DS owners a new way to interact with a game that they’ll want to visit again and again. “Nintendo fans are familiar with Mii characters, but now they come to life in ways they never have before – with their own lives, interests and personalities. Customization and open-ended play are two big video game trends for 2014, and Tomodachi Life delivers a fun, creative experience that makes you want to visit again and again, because there’s always something interesting going on.” What do you think of this presentation? local_offer Nintendo nintendo 3ds tomodachi life wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo profits are up 520% Breath of the Wild sells 3.8 million units Is Nintendo shafting Axiom Verge because of Dan Adelman?

Thomas Vienna It’s such a quirky game. I probably won’t buy it, but I’d play it if I had it. steveb944 That’s such a confusing statement. You would want to play it…but you don’t want to buy it to play it. Ask for it as a gift then, Haha. Thomas Vienna It doesn’t seem confusing to me at all. If I can think of a better way to spend $40, then I won’t buy the game. If I did get it as a gift though, I probably would have fun with it. Zorpix Amazing technical feats for a game, and the most hilarious Nintendo Direct I’ve ever seen. I want this game pretty hard. I was laughing the whole way through. Colin Malone It was pretty bizarre… on the other hand something about it really intrigued me, I’ll think I’ll probably pick this up sometime. That guy who hates Spike Reminded me of Nintendo Week Zorpix Ugh… I miss Nintendo Week so badly… jjbredesen I love it when they do this kind of stuff, why can’t the E3 direct be like this XD Zorpix seriously jjbredesen Yeah it would be fantastic, just imagine when they reveal Zelda U and Miyamotos new IP in a format like this XD. But i am wondering if the Samus thing was a hint at us getting a new Metroid??

I’ll be picking this up because I love my Mii. First thing I thought was Tamagotchi when I read the title. Mario Okay… Weirdest Direct ever. Justin Thomas McGowan It looks a little too silly… is certainly accept it as a gift at least for the Club Nintendo coins but it looks like a waste of money otherwise. The Direct for it was just annoying. Assassinated23 Samus is GLaDOS! Commander Raichu this direct was stinking hillarious ALL HAIL THE VIRTUAL BOY! asdfg This is perfect GOTY Tim van Broekhoven Japanese weirdness, I love it! The dream feature is fantastic 😛 All hail the virtual boy! daeglyth Funny stuff. I’ll try this one, why not?
