Tomodachi Life

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.
