Nintendo UK signs up The Vamps for new marketing campaign promoting Tomodachi Life the latest game on Nintendo 3DS & 2DS
22nd AUGUST 2014 – Top indie pop band The Vamps are set to star in an upcoming advertising campaign for Nintendo UK to promote Tomodachi Life, available now on Nintendo 3DS & 2DS. The adverts will see the band enter the crazy world of Tomodachi Life and fans will be also able to get up close and personal with the boys via official QR Codes which will allow them to import Mii cha racters of the band into their game for free.
Tomodachi Life allows you to create a crazy and fun-packed world, populated with Mii characters based on absolutely anyone you know; such as your friends, family and now even The Vamps. Your Mii characters will live on their own island together, and you can customise their lives with a variety of cool clothes and décor for their flat, as well as enjoy a host of different food from around the world. Each of your Mii characters can speak, sing, and act with their own individual personality, so watch them form surprising friendships, fall in love, and funny situations unfold. Become the director of their lives as your Mii characters star in your very own soap opera – you’ll want to share every wacky moment as it happens – and at any time you can capture screenshots. These can be shared via the Nintendo 3DS Image Share tool to Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr with your real-life friends and family so they can see what’s happening on your island. The sky’s the limit in Tomodachi Life – Your friends. Your stories. Your life.
