Nintendo's Supremely Silly Lifestyle Sim Coming To North America

This morning, Nintendo announced that it was bringing its bizarre game Tomodachi Life to North America. It's one of those games that's best seen in action, which is probably why the reveal came via a special Nintendo Direct. Get ready for singing Miis, love triangles squares, rap battles, and much more.

The video below breaks it all down nicely, but the basic premise of Tomodachi Life is simple: You give your Mii a customizable voice, tweak their personality, and let them loose on a crazy island. I can't say for certain that anything's possible, but judging from the sheer volume of insane activities on hand, there seems to be plenty to keep players busy.

Look for Tomodachi Island on the 3DS on June 6, at retail and as a download.

  • LOL I saw the Tomodachi Direct earlier this morning. This game looks adorable and hilarious at the same time. DAY ONE BUY FOR ME!

  • This looks like Animal Crossing/Sims, but quirkier. I'll keep an eye on it but right now it's a pass for me.
  • I just watched the Nintendo Direct. I had no idea the Big N had such a bizarre sense of humor. I'll definitely add this to my 3DS. It just looks so nutty!
  • When Nintendo Nintendos up a Nintendo game.
  • I think I'll buy this…

  • Is it wrong to want this despite my severe distancing of myself from those Xbox Live Avatar games and Playstation Home?
  • What da heck did I just watch?

  • That may have been the most screwed up thing I've ever seen! In a good way of course. Holy crap though! Has nintendo always been this messed up!?!?!

  • i love how ridiculously ugly miis are

  • Pokémon a-Mii

  • Fun fact, the burger is only in the US version of the direct posted on Youtube.

    Take that as you will.

  • You haven't been taking Your court ordered meds have You Nintendo?

  • This will be a day one for me. This is one of the most original and funniest things I've seen in ages.

  • Game of the Year. I honestly have never been more excited to play a game before.

  • Weird, but I want it!

  • My dream of dating a bobble-headed Reggie can finally come true.
  • The only way this could have happened is if everyone at Nintendo got high and made a game before they crashed.

    Day one purchase

  • Some of the elements in this remind me of Toro's Friends Network on Vita. I might give this a try.

  • So one day Nintendo decided to do all the drugs...
  • Remember, what happens in Tomodachi Island stays in Tomodachi Island.
