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!
