Tomodachi Life

Even though Tomodachi Life has been out for awhile, Nintendo UK uploaded three new commercials for the title today. Each one features singer/songwriter Ella Eyre. Check them out below.

Nintendo has been sending out unique items in Tomodachi Life via SpotPass since launching in the west. Now after nearly two years, the distributions have ended.

If you have SpotPass enabled, you should be getting the last schoolgirl uniform color. Tomodachi Life’s news flash mentions that it’s the final Special Import item. These can now only be obtained from friends or with QR codes.


Here’s an interesting little tidbit about Miitomo. Tomodachi Life QR codes work with the app, meaning you can easily bring over your character. The Mii’s name, voice, appearance, and personality transfer. Your catchphrase also becomes your greeting. You can use the QR code so long as you’ve sen “allow copying” on.


Nintendo just sent out a tweet to announce that Tomodachi Life has sold an impressive 2 million times in Europe ever since it launched in June 2014. This is quite an impressive number for a game that isn’t attached to a popular franchise, and it’s not a huge surprise that Nintendo’s first upcoming mobile game, Miitomo, seems to be heavily inspired by Tomodachi Life.


A new StreetPass Mii Plaza 3DS puzzle has made its way to Europe. The “Tomodachi Life Friendship Fiesta” panel is out now, and users should begin receiving their first piece via SpotPass. Nintendo brought out the puzzle as part of a new promotion of the game in Europe.

Nintendo Benelux just announced that Tomodachi Life, which has been a huge success worldwide, is getting a Dutch translation in October. This is quite unusual since the game has been out in Europe for over a year now and usually games aren’t getting a separate Dutch translation since the level of English proficiency is quite high in the Netherlands. Nintendo might be aiming to attract younger players with this decision.

Check out the announcement video below:


Tomodachi Life has sold more than 1.5 million copies in Europe, Nintendo revealed today. The game originally launched in the region last June.

We previously heard last December that over 1 million copies of Tomodachi Life had been sold in Europe.

Today’s news comes as part of a Tomodachi Life Friendship Fiesta for the territory. More information about the event can be found here.
