Tomodachi Life is an awesome life simulation, single-player game for the Nintendo 3DS, developed by Nintendo SPD. The game, which is a sequel to the Japan-exclusive Nintendo DS title Tomodachi Collection was released in Japan April 2013, and worldwide June 2014. Along with good sales records, the game received positive reviews. Many reviewers praised the gameplay, but criticized the minigames, which I can understand because the minigames are pretty annoying and the Miis (A Mii is a customizable avatar used on several Nintendo video game consoles and mobile apps) are so eager to keep playing the same games.
Anyhow, the game begins with the player naming their island and creating their personal Mii, which is the player's "look-alike", who lives in a tiny apartment building. The building can grow, allowing the player to have 100 Miis on the island.
The game takes place on an island inhabited by various Miis, which the player can import from their 3DS, 2DS, 3DS XL and other devices, or QR codes, or create from scratch using the 3DS´s camera or the in-game creation tools. These Miis can be given their own voice, which is spoken in vocal synthesizer software, and a unique personality based on slider inputs. Miis can then perform various actions, such as eating, trying on different outfits, falling in love with someone, and many leisure activities. As more Miis are introduced, many strange and curious interactions can occur between Miis, such as friendship, romance, rivalry, relationships, and families. As the game goes by, the player unlocks more and more stores, clothes, and food.
The gameplay is SO much fun, I have to say. If you are unsure whether to get it or not, do not fear; there is a demo for it! I tried the demo and was very pleased with the things you could do with your little Mii friends, so I bought the game right away. There are many things to try out as the island grows. Things happen all the time, and it is real date & time too, so the Miis will not for example complain in the middle of the night about something. They go to sleep at a reasonable time as well. Some minigames (that I unfortunately dislike because of the reasons I mentioned earlier), a concert hall where you can create your own songs for the Miis to sing, millions of different foods and clothes to try, friendship can turn into love & families... You never know what is going to happen in the world of Tomodachi Life!
