Video: Watch Nintendo Of Europe President Satoru Shibata Sing His Heart Out In Tomodachi Life

Posted by Damien McFerran

Zelda and Animal Crossing are his personal faves, it would seem

Tomodachi Life has become one of Nintendo's surprise hits of 2014, with its commercial performance on both sides of the Atlantic proving to be pretty robust. A large slab of the game's appeal is the way in which you can breathe new life into your Mii characters by getting them to perform all kinds of strange acts — the most entertaining of which is singing and dancing to various custom-made songs.

The guys and gals at Nintendo UK have clearly been having some fun with this aspect of the title, as they've created two videos which star the Mii of Nintendo of Europe President Satoru Shibata.

In these clips, he communicates the all-important rules of Zelda and shares his affection for Animal Crossing: New Leaf, all with the assistance of his talented team of backing dancers — some of whom you may recognise.

Check out the videos and let us know what you think by singing a song in the comments section.

But you've delayed Captain Toad.

Anyway I love the videos! Dos backup dancers. by the way, who is that right-most backup dancer on the AC New Leaf video?

Captain Toad gets delayed, we still haven't heard anything about the NES Remix Pack coming to Europe, and meanwhile Shibata is playing with his 3DS trying to make a career as a pop star...

@outburst Katsuya Eguichi (probably misspeled that) i think, creator and producer for the Animal Crossing series.

@Xilef Ah, you mean Katsuya Eguchi (Eguchi Katsuya if you want to get technical with the Last Name-First Name thing in the Japanese language).

Shibata-sama has such a superb singing voice, even better than my Mii singing his hit single "Cryokinesis".
