It doubles as an amiibo
Nintendo has rolled out the third update for Miitopia in less than a week, so what's the reason this time? It better be good! For once it's not just stability or minor fixes, this update adds support for the Nintendo Power-Up Band, which doubles as an amiibo. According to the patch notes for Version 1.0.3, if you show the...
The best Mii codes we've found online
With the arrival of Miitopia on Switch, the ability to make and share your own Miis has been greatly expanded over the 3DS original. We've seen some stunning custom Mii's shared online since the demo hit the Switch eShop, with some of gaming's greatest
Are you talkin' to Mii?
Of all the possible 3DS games that Nintendo could have brought to Switch, we have to admit that Miitopia isn't the most obvious choice. However, having played the game and experienced it on Switch — including the overhauled Mii creation suite that's unleashed some incredible Mii-making creativity being shared
Love Mii do
Ah, the Mii. We remember when we first made our own Miis back in 2006. Back then the most character customisation we had experienced was probably with The Sims, so making Miis of our friends, family and favourite video game characters was a fun pastime. It's a real shame, then, that Nintendo stepped away from their Miis, presumably in an...
Off you go to the depths of the Settings menu
One of the great charms of the Wii was, of course, the humble Mii. The cute little avatars were right at the heart of the system and this would continue with Wii U; each boot-up of the HD system greeted us with hundreds of cute little Mii characters running into view and standing under their favourite...
No one nose how
Some people have a fear of spiders. Some have a phobia of heights. But I, dear reader, am terrified of the mortifying ordeal of being known. I do not wish to be perceived. And, like a beating heart at the centre of that fear, I specifically do not wish for anyone to be able to see my nose. Mii makers, for years, have been...
Nintendo’s endlessly endearing Mii characters have been one of the most enduring creations of the Wii era; from their earliest days as Wii Sports athletes and player avatars, they’ve gone on to star in StreetPass and Nintendo Land, soar through the air in Pilotwings Resort, race in Mario Kart 8, and even battle it out in Sup
Restore the stolen faces of the citizens of Miitopia
We brought the news earlier this month that the quirky 3DS RPG Miitopia would be getting localised for a Western release, and in today's New 2DS XL unveiling video it was revealed that the quirk RPG will be released on 28th July. It is now listed for $39.99 on Nintendo of America's website and is...
It's all about Mii
Miitopia is a fascinating game, as it delivers a surprisingly deep and complex RPG with a cast made up in its entirety of Mii characters. The core concept is that you can have the game use your collection of Mii characters, so you can have as bizarre a quest as you like. The good news is that it's not going to be limited to...
Health boosts with a salt shaker, rescuing faces, and more
In early November Nintendo broadcast a Miitopia Direct in Japan, which lifted the lid on the quirky Mii-centric RPG adventure on 3DS. With various tropes of the genre, it throws in typically peculiar Mii features and populates the adventure with characters found on your device. You could try...
Solving the Mii-stery
Miitopia, a Mii-centric game that appears to blend Tomodachi Life with more conventional RPG gameplay, is out in Japan very soon. Localisation to the West seems to be a longshot at present, so we'll watch this out of curiosity; after all, it's a major December release on 3DS in Japan. <liveblog...
Like Tomodachi Life, sort of
Miitopia is getting its own Japanese Nintendo Direct this weekend, continuing the strange path to release for the Mii-centric 3DS title. As for a Western arrival, there's been no solid indication of that happening any time soon. In any case, a preview download of the game is on the Japanese 3DS eShop, and NintenDaan
That was quick
During the Japanese version of today's Animal Crossing Direct it was revealed that the mysterious 3DS title Miitopia launches in that region on December 8th - and it's getting its own Direct broadcast in just a few days on 5th November. That's a quick turnaround for a title which we still don't really know much about, aside from the...
More information coming "at a later date"
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...
