Tomodachi Life

Tomodachi Life is a life simulation handheld video game for the Nintendo 3DS and the direct sequel to the Japan-exclusive Nintendo DS title, Tomodachi Collection. It was first released in Japan on April 18th, 2013 and was the best selling game in Japan on its release, selling 404,858 units. It was released in North America and Europe on June 6th, 2014.

The game takes place on an island inhabited by various Miis, which the player can import from their 3DS, other devices, or QR Codes, or create from scratch using the 3DS' camera or the in-game creation tools. These Miis can be given their own voice, which is spoken in vocal synthesizer software, and a unique personality based on slider inputs given. Miis can then perform various actions, such as eating, trying on different outfits and doing many leisurely activities. As more Miis are introduced, many strange and curious interactions can occur between Miis, such as friendship, romance, rivalry, and even bizarre musical numbers.
