Video: Feast Your Eyes On Episode One Of Days Of Our Tomodachi Lives

Posted by Damien McFerran

And take part in the caption competition to win a role in episode two

Last week, we told you about an amazing new event in web-based televisual programming: Days of Our Tomodachi Lives. A soap opera created entirely with Tomodachi Life, it is surely set to become one of the most significant contributions to popular culture yet seen, and the most amazing thing is that we offered a starring role to one of our lucky readers.

Marco "Dragonxflame323" Huezo was the one who made us laugh the most with his caption competition entry, and as a result he was transported digitally to Nlife Island, the exotic location where Days of Our Tomodachi Lives is filmed. You can watch his exploits — and those of the Nintendo Life crew — below.

Want to be in next week's episode? Then give us your best caption for the following image, which seems to show Martin Watts (again) locked in mortal combat with the man currently responsible for the wellbeing of the Zelda franchise, Eiji Aonuma.

What did you think of the first episode? What would you like to see in future instalments? Let us know by posting your feedback below, as well as posting your entry for the competition. Good Luck!

"Martin made a joke about Aonuma being responsible for the CD-i Zelda games, and things went downhill from there."

Eiji wished he had brought his bomb bag from work after Martin let slip Peach was his favourite Nintendo princess.

I have a question about the songs in the game. Do you get to create the melodies? The one in this sounded much more in key than the one used in the Direct.

"Meanwhile, Martin conducts an exclusive interview with Mr. Aonuma, where he gets a first-hand look at his interpretation of Zelda fans at E3 2014, when they learn that Zelda U will be an HD Toon Link version of Link's Crossbow Training."

Or

"Martin: So Mr. Aonuma, I hear you're trying to make a Zelda game that surpasses the legendary of Ocarina of Time.
Aonuma: What do you mean, 'trying'!?
(fisticuffs ensue)"

Aonuma: You really make me want to make you feel like a unicorn who farts space rockets with those stupid memes. You realise how much that is gonna hurt?
Martin Watts: Yeah? Well at least at least I don't shout "All hail the Virtual Boy" all day. LONG LIVE THE JAGUAR! So throw what you want. My body is ready

I'll make another caption for fun. You don't have to pick me again. :P

Martin: Mr. Aonuma, I've always wanted to tell you how much I love the Zelda series! It's my favorite series ever.

Aonuma: Oh? Could you tell me why that is? smiling

Martin: Zelda, he's so cool, and heroic. I want to be just like him!

Aonuma: ....

..and it all went rock bottom from there.

Are you able to create movies like this in the game itself? Or did you just make clips from it? o.o

Also, a Hyrule Warriors joke seems perfect for that picture, but I can't think of any. :|

Watt: "Seriously? You can't even manage to catch a big blue inflatable bowlingball from 3 feet away? Look at me, i managed to balance a backpack on my forehead while tossing you the ball AT THE SAME TIME."

One more:

Eiji and Martin's Legend of Zelda roleplay was, needless to say, a lot cooler in their heads.

Aonuma is just trying to find some new weapons for Link to use to update the game to modern times. Link's backpack will now be used as a weapon and the only thing to defeat Ganon.

Watts came in and spoke about using the bug catching net to defeat Ganon in ALBW. Aonuma decided to use his new weapons to defeat Watts and see if it would work.

Watts: I have a great idea for the next Zelda game!
Aonuma: Sure, why not, what is it?
Watts: Alright, here's my great idea.......I call it, The Watter Temple!
Aonuma: >: 0 THAT HAS TO BE ONE OF THE WORST IDEAS IV'E EVER HEARD IN MY LIFE!!!!
Watts: You take that back!!!

And so, Watts and Aonuma engaged in an epic battle, and it was remembered for generations to come..........because Iwata was video recording the entire battle, and showed it off in the next Nintendo direct!

Mr. Aonuma figured that throwing a backpack full of homework on the history of SEGA at Nintendo devotee Martin Watts really was a no-brainer.

Caption: Coming soon, Hyrule brawlers, the sequel to hyrule warriors. We were to broke to afford actual character models and weapons after hyrule warriors so we used household items instead. Please understand!

Anyway great video, can't wait for more, I loved the song at the end. Do more of those!
