Nintendo has a bunch of weird franchises that they keep within the confines of Japan, but one of the bigger ones is being freed from its Nipponese shackles. That game is Tomodachi Life, a weird sort of Animal Crossing meets The Sims meets hardcore hallucinogenics. And this trailer, showing you its intricacies, will leave you scratching your head…or laughing out loud.
Everyone you know, and everyone you wish you knew, should prepare to meet their Mii maker – you! – as you build a bustling fantasy population of friends, family and even celebrities, all in one wild and hilarious world. The real emotional connection you already share with your Mii characters will keep you glued to the drama, intrigue and hilarity that ensues as everyone goes about their extraordinary daily lives, evolving and interacting in unpredictable and often uproarious ways.P
Yes, it’s very much like animal Crossing or the sims, where you use your little digital, virtual you to interact with other little digital people, but this one’s all about emotion. And being weird as hell. It’s coming on June , and proves that Nintendo still has the power to surprise…even if that surprise is mostly in the way of “what the hell did I just watch?”
Seriously though. My body is ready.
