But what IS it

A while back Nintendo confirmed that it was making a Mii-based title for the 3DS known as Miitopia, but stopped short of giving any other details aside from the title and "2016" release window.

The lack of information regarding this game has led some to assume it has been pushed into 2017, but Nintendo has confirmed that it is indeed still on course for a release this year - in Japan, at least.

During the company's recent financial briefing, Nintendo CEO Tatsumi Kimishima stated that Miitopia is one of 2016's big holiday releases in the region, and that more information will be released "at a later date".

The game's logo features a sword, which hints at some kind of fantasy RPG setting - perhaps this will be like an expanded version of StreetPass Quest, where you recruit other Miis to help you on an epic adventure?

Let us know what you think Miitopia will shape up like by posting a comment below.
