Tomodachi Life launches next month, and Nintendo is taking steps to ensure that the appeal of this incredibly unique game is as obvious as possible.

With this in mind, Nintendo UK has produced a video which runs for almost four minutes and outlines some of the things you'll be able to get up to in the final game. The clip gives a lot of focus to the process of bringing your Mii characters to life — you can give them a voice and decide on various attributes, creating a unique personality each and every time. Once created, these Miis can forge friendships, go travelling, play in a band and even get married and produce their own children.

Seeing as we're on the subject, make sure you take part in our competition to be a star in "Days of Our Tomodachi Lives", a show we'll be running over the next six weeks.
