And what exactly is this?
Nintendo have announced that the upcoming Super Smash Bros. will feature a stage based on Tomodachi Collection. Tomodachi is a life simulator game similar to The Sims and Animal Crossing in which we control our Mii, and it’s only released in the Japanese market so far. However, it was pretty successful there, selling over 3 and a half million units on the DS, and over a million and a half on the 3DS.
There will be different versions of the stage in the Wii U and the 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros, with the Wii U version focusing on console games and the 3DS version focusing on handheld games.
This Tomodachi Collection stage joins the Animal Crossing: New Leaf stage that Nintendo announced last month Super Smash Bros would have on the 3DS.
Could this mean that Nintendo is subtly pitching this life sim series to western audiences? Could we be getting Tomodachi games here in the near future?
Stay tuned for more updates.
