Nintendo has partnered with Christina Aguilera for this game. More celebrities to follow soon.

Even your far-fetched celebrity dreams can come true in Tomodachi Life. If you have ever wanted international superstar Christina Aguilera to join you in a sing-off, or believed that she would become BFFs with your cousin or wished she would perform a song with your customized lyrics, it could happen here. The multi award-winning singer has signed on to be a part of Nintendo?s promotional campaign for the game, and her Mii character will be available at launch. Aguilera?s Mii character also will guest star in a TV commercial and in online videos that show all the exciting things that happen when celebrities mingle with Miis players know personally. The first video in the series can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/sBTHSY5GKKY. Additional celebrities involved with Tomodachi Life will be announced over the upcoming weeks.

I've been interested and waiting for them to announce the release date. I was surprised when they announced it for the west a while back. Surprised and happy. Glad it's not taking 5 years like most things. Hopefully it won't be delayed 46 times like New Leaf.

I am not sure where to start when it comes to commenting on this game, but I will say that if any game is going to get me into the sim genre, it will most likely be this. All hail Virtual Boy!

My thoughts exactly. What.

How much control do you have ? Do you choose what the Miis are doing, or is it essentially like watching TV ?

Does anyone know if this game is anything like Animal Crossing? As in, the game kinda plays itself when your not using it. Time still passes & things continue to happen while your away.

That was the best Nintendo Direct ever.

I can't think of a better way to market such a quirky game.

Bill Trinen could have done a little better acting, though, I think it may have been on purpose...

Anyway, this game... I just... Don't... I'm not sure if this means I'm forever alone if I get this game or what... It's just... Wuut.

I've been waiting for an America release of this game ever since the title released in Japan. I am legit the happiest man on this planet right now. I'm hoping it doesn't destroy my social life, though. x)

But really I think the game is popular because it's funny and it can be played casually here and there to relax. It's generally not my type of gameplay but I think if they priced it for $30 or less it could be a decent hit in the West as well, depending on how they adapt the more Japanese elements.

For some reason or another, review copies are out and there's no embargo on them. The description of that Morgan Freeman video shows some info on song customization. You can choose from preset songs and then change their lyrics. A bit disappointed, but it makes sense considering an entire song customization mode would have taken too long to make.

to be honest with you guys i think this is a load of bull crap, tamodachi sounds like TOMOGACHI and i loved them as a kid i still have mine!!! but seriously?! c'mon Nintendo you don't need to stoop this LOW. It feels like they're just advertising random CRAP instead of pushing good games!!! i know i know, yoshi Island and Kirby and SSB and bla bla bla but seriously they need to focus more on Games and not all this other promo kitty garbage especially because (and im hoping) they might get Iwata out of chair soon for a FRESH YOUNG person to come in. Nintendo direct is a great idea but its starting to seem a little silly (sorry to hurt any fan boys feelings) but it just makes more sense to me to promo good games not waste time on a Mii simulator that 8 year olds on their smartphones wont even take a second glance at

Tomodachi means friend(s) in Japanese and the game has literally nothing with in common with tomagatchi (the word "tomagatchi" is a portmanteau combining the Japanese words for egg and watch).

The original Tomodachi on the DS ended up selling 3 million by the end of its lifetime and this one has sold almost 2 million in Japan alone. And has received good reception from players and its addictiveness has been compared to Animal Crossing and Sims.

A quirky game like this usually would never leave Japan but the fact that Nintendo is releasing this game in North America and Europe bodes well for future localizations.

tl;dr: go away

Yo dawg I'm not even going to address the rest of your drivel but that part about the words really strikes me as weird.

Are cars and bars related?
Are tools and fools related?
How about one and won?

I mean yes, I realize everyone isn't familiar with the Japanese language (I too confused it with Tomagachi at first glance) but such a thing strikes me as weird considering there are similar such patterns in English.

Dude... get off the forums. XD You sound like you just joined the forums to bash Nintendo, because you pretty much just made no sense. I think you just came back from watching your favorite show, your favorite character died, and you came here to blow off your anger.

It'll probably do great, "life simulators" like animal crossing and sims do great in the states, mash them together and add miis, you have one helluva game.

I am super excited for this, BUT I also don't think it will do as well. I hope it does, that would be awesome. But I think one of the reasons why they waited so long to bring it west is because they were hesitant about it selling. I can't put my finger on quite what it is, but it has that quirky humor (which don't get me wrong, I love it) that a lot of western folk won't find amusing. Does that make sense?

Hope it does well though cause that means more games like that for us

Spotpass. Nintendo will send you some items and miis every now and then. Other than that though, nope.

Yes, it plays in real time.
