Nintendo Tomodachi Life DS Game Available at Best Buy - #NintendoatBestBuy

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

When it comes to video game playing I think my big brothers have made it an art. They live, eat and breathe video games and my house has every system imaginable. I like to think of it as the household designed for kids, especially since mommy and daddy can be kids at heart sometimes too. When accepted into the Tomodachi Life Best Buy campaign my brother Mikael was elated. This meant that there was going to be a new game for his Nintendo 3DS and it wasn't even his birthday. It doesn't get any better than that does it?

If you don't own a Nintendo DS (3DS, 2DS) then you're definitely missing out. Not only are you missing out on some superior family gaming but you're going to be missing out on playing this delightful game. If you're a fan of the Sims franchise or even if you enjoyed Animal Crossing you are going to love Tomodachi Life. Tomodachi means "friends" in Japanese and is all about building relationships.

Your Mii is the center of attention in Tomodachi Life. You live on an island in your own apartment. You interact with other Mii's  who can be your friends in real life or ones you can download. Your Mii can be just like you with his/her own voice and personality. You can watch them eat, rock out, fall in love, get married and even have babies.

Mikael has been playing since the first day he got it and has become addicted. It is a really addicting game and lots of fun. When something really cool happens, you can take a picture and share it over Nintendo Image Share, one of the great features of the 3DS, or 2DS. You can even share your Mii creations with friends locally or online as well. This has got to be one of the best games for the Nintendo 3DS Mikael says!

Now if you would love to play this game how about grabbing a Nintendo 2DS?  From 8/29/2014 – 9/1/2014, Best Buy is having an awesome 4 Day Labor Day Sale. Online only Nintendo 2DS system - $99.99 with a savings of $30.

The Nintendo 2DS is just as great as the 3DS with all these key features:

  • Take videos and pictures using your 2DS
  • Great entry price point of $129.99 into an expansive world of portable gaming

  1. This game sounds awesome! It sounds almost like The Sims! I will have to look for it next time I go looking for new games!

  2. This looks just like the Sims without the raunchy stuff haha! I may have to pick this one up for the kiddos :)

    1. I LOVE Sims & I know what you mean! haha

  3. Looks like a fun game for kids and adults!

  4. I love the Tamodachi people and my boys are huge fans. e even got the pillow!

  5. I don't know which is better, the Tomodachi game itself, or the awesome Labor Day sale on the 2DS! Oh who am I kidding, they're both pretty awesome!

  6. My sister who is eleven has this game and loves it! I highly recommend it!

  7. I agree with Chrissy! This reminds me so much of the Sims as that's my favorite video game ever (can't wait for Sims 4 to arrive later this fall!). I don't think I'm in any need of a 2DS but I do want to check out their labor day sale anyway. Can't go wrong with a great sale! :)

  8. Do you remember the little pets we had as kids? Mine always died!

  9. We don't have video games at home but they do play sometimes on the computer through free games online.

  10. This game looks great. My kids would probably really love playing this.

  11. I wondered what the differences were between the 2 and 3. Happy to learn more about that here. I like that you can use games for either system on both.

    1. It looks like the upgrade would be worth while.

  12. what acute game bet son would like this will have to stop by Best Buy soon.

  13. Ooh looks like a fun game! I love Best Buy! This game looks like I could get lost in it for hours :)

  14. Oh I haven't heard of this game but I do love the Sims and this would be great for me to play while on the train. Thanks for sharing. Seems like I missed the sale but I'm still going to pick it up!

  15. This looks like a really fun game. I have a cousin who plays on her DS all day long and this would be a great game for her for Christmas.

  16. We only own one ds system and we make the kids share it based on a reward system. They could spend all day on it. This looks so much fun.
