If you have Nintendo users in the house they might love the new Tomodachi Life game. The game uses Mii characters. The idea of the game is helping your characters with random acts such as eating, help them find a lost item, taking pictures and many other miscellaneous tasks. You can look inside your characters dreams as well. Some of the other fun features of Tomodoachi Life include:
•Making Music Videos – write songs and watch your Mii’s perform your creations
•Create Mii’s of your favorite celebrities – anyone can show up on your Tomodachi Life island
•Favorite/Least Favorite Foods – discover and feed your Mii’s what they love or what they hate…and watch the hilarious results
•Get Married and Have Kids – start a family in Tomodachi Life and experience your child growing up, walking for the first time, and maybe move off the island?!?!?!
•Personalities and Voices – not only can your create Mii’s that look like you and your friends, but you can also give them their own voice and personalities
My kids found it fascinating and fun and became hooked on it almost instantly. I appreciate that the game is non violent and is rated E for everyone.
The game can be played on the Nintendo 2DS or 3DS. Both of which are available at Best Buy. My kids have the 3DS, but they would love for me to get them a 2DS at some point as it plays all the great 3DS and DS games. You can also take videos and pictures using your 2DS. While the regular price for the 2DS is very reasonable at $129.99, you will be able to save $30 at Best Buy during their Labor Day sale. Yep, it will be only $99 from 8/29/2014 – 9/1/2014. Offer available online only. You’ll also want to be on the lookout on 8/31/2014 for an Online only sale where select 3DS games will be $5 off.
You can get Tomodachi Life at Best Buy for $34.99.
