Nintendo has always had their own unique way of marketing games, but today's surprise Tomodachi Life Nintendo Direct takes unique to a whole new level. The 11 minute presentation focuses completely on the upcoming Mii life simulation game Tomodachi Life, and includes Mii versions of Nintendo's top brass interacting in goofy situations. Bill Trinen and Reggie Fils-Aime fight over a teddie bear, Eiji Aonuma professes his love for Zelda, Shigeru Miyamoto dresses up like a cowboy and plays guitar. It honestly needs to be seen to believed, so please check out the video below.
I had no idea what to expect when I tuned in for this Direct and what I saw was absolutely fantastic. The video reminds me of a family friendly version of an Adult Swim show (I never expected to say that about a Nintendo advert). I didn't know what Tomodachi Life was when I woke up today, but now its near the top of my most anticipated games in the coming months.
