Friend Connection Is Nintendo’s Take On The Sims

image All we know about Nintendo’s elusive Tomodachi Collection (Friend Connection) is Nintendo executives and figureheads make appearances in the DS game. Since it’s coming out on June 18 it’s about time Nintendo or someone else leaks information about it.

 

Retailer Gamestar drops the first tidbits, which makes Friend Connection essentially sound like Nintensims. Players start the game by creating a Mii who lives on an island with other Miis. The Miis interact with each other, make enemies, make friends, and fall in love. Miis representing family and friends can also be added to the island with stats to replicate their personality. Miis can even be imported from a Wii.

 

You take care of the island by providing food and other entertainment like card games. Every morning and night players can tune into to a TV news broadcast. Ah! That must be where Shigeru Miyamoto makes his singing cameo.

    Just a heads up – it’s “Tomodachi Collection”, as it is “Korekusshon”.

      Ah! Thanks for this. I keep calling it “Friend Connection” now since it looks like that’s going to be the international name.
