About the Game
In the colorful world of Miitopia, sinister happenings are afoot. The Dark Lord has been stealing the faces of the world’s populace and placing the visages on its horde of minions. This wave of terror has left many eyeless, mouthless, noseless Mii-people in its wake. A mysterious traveler–played either by your personal Mii or another Mii living on your 3DS that you select–stumbles into a city during one of the Dark Lord’s attacks and is called upon by a higher power to put a stop to the face-taking madness.
Our Take on the Game
The below was written by my daughter who is a kid reviewer or Nintendo
As a Nintendo Kid Reviewer I loved the idea of making a fantasy world filled with Miis. I knew this was inspired by Tomodachi Life, but one thing that stood out with this were the relationships that I could build with other Mii characters. As you play the game you and your party members can hang out together at inns, travel to new locations, and fight at each others’ side, and by doing this together this will raise and lower the affinity they have for each other.
The events and these moments have funny cinematics and dialogue as characters talk, argue, train, and help each other out in combat. The scenes are a bit funny and random but made Miitopia fun.
As your Miis come into the world, you can assign them jobs for combat. You can have them be Warriors, Clerics, and Thieves. However, what I liked too was that they could also be a Pop Star, Chef, or even a Cat. You get to have control and assign a personality type, such as Cool, Stubborn, or Airhead, that effects the characters in a number of ways. I found some differences between the types as I had one Cool character that seemed to dodge enemy attacks more frequently, while another Mii that was a Stubborn one can sometimes take extra turns.
You get to control the main character and the rest of the Mii characters are controlled by the computer. I wish that I, or my friends could control other Mii characters, but maybe something like this will come in the future.
I also wish that I could explore the game a bit more. Don’t get me wrong, you do get to explore quite a bit, but it would have been cool to also be able to explore the rooms and areas a bit more.
In the end I liked Miitopia. After you play it for a few hours you do start to get some repetition that starts to come in, but I loved the Mii characters and the environments that you get to be a part of. If you love Miis, I think you will love this game too!
