Nintendo’s New 3DS Game Is Like Animal Crossing On Acid

Nintendo’s New 3DS Game Is Like Animal Crossing On Acid

With a dash of The Sims, a chunk of Animal Crossing and a liberal injection of Robot Chicken, this might be the weirdest 3DS game we’ve seen in North America so far.

It’s called Tomodachi Life, and it’s out on June 6 for 3DS. Here’s Nintendo describing the game:

Everyone you know, and everyone you wish you knew, should prepare to meet their Mii maker — you! — as you build a bustling fantasy population of friends, family and even celebrities, all in one wild and hilarious world. The real emotional connection you already share with your Mii characters will keep you glued to the drama, intrigue and hilarity that ensues as everyone goes about their extraordinary daily lives, evolving and interacting in unpredictable and often uproarious ways.

But that description doesn’t really capture how bizarre this game is. Watch Nintendo’s insane 10-minute Tomodachi Life video for a more thorough look:
