Feature: Be Part Of Our Forthcoming Webshow 'Days Of Our Tomodachi Lives'

Posted by Damien McFerran

Your chance to be a global superstar

With the release of 3DS life-sim Tomodachi Life now just weeks away, we're going to be running a special competition where you — the lovely Nintendo Life readership — will have the chance to be (almost) famous and have your Mii established a key character in an ongoing web series.

For the next six weeks we'll be broadcasting a new episode from the soon-to-be-critically-acclaimed Days of Our Tomodachi Lives, each of which centers around the exploits of the Nintendo Life team within a wild and wacky virtual world. You'll be able to see the staff go about their business and get a feel for the kind of strange situations contained with the game — but that's just the beginning.

Each week, we'll be giving you the chance to enter a competition, and the winner will have their Mii placed in the following week's episode. To be in with a chance of making it into the series debut, all you have to do is compose a witty caption for the following image, which appears to show our very own Martin Watts in a rather bizarre cloning experiment:

We'll carefully examine all of the entries and the one which makes us guffaw the most successfully will be deemed the best. We'll then get in touch to grab your Mii QR code (so make sure you have one ready) and you'll become a fully-fledged member of the hottest virtual soap opera on the web.

The contest is open to everyone, but we do reserve the right to refuse any Miis we think are too damn weird for public consumption and ask you to amend the design to something which at least resembles a human being. No offense, but we've seen some of the Miis out there during our StreetPass travels, and they give us nightmares.

You can get a taster for what the series will entail by watching the trailer below — once you've done that, give us your best caption and keep those fingers firmly crossed.

I don't see anything against posting two captions, sorry if I'm wrong:
"And here we have the production of our Flesh-Bone 4 Watt batteries. Even If the product ends up failing, the Sucrose electrolyte can double as an Ice lolly coating."

Clones? What clones? Oh, you mean THOSE guys. No, they're just identical quadruplets. Who happen to be in a cloning machine. For no reason at all.

(As an aside, that is one GROOVY rendition of the Super Mario 3D World theme you have going on in that trailer! Did you guys actually make that yourselves to keep from Content ID matching, or is that in the game?)

I've just joined this site as of today so I'm excited to actually interact with you guys after watching all of you for a couple months! The news is some of the best I've seen compared to the other sites I've visited, the members here seem lame but I'll deal with it ;P , and there don't seem to be many trolls here so I guess that's how I'll contribute to the community XD (Joking bros and broettes, please unflag me) ANYWAYS!! I've been too lazy to make an account but this competition has given me a little push to do so.

My entry:
"Someone's taking the Year of Luigi a liiittle bit too seriously..."

I hope I can become friends with all of you guys!!

@Marloso Buy Pokémon X or Y. You will get a lot of hours with this game.
