Miitopia brings RPG adventure with Miis to Nintendo Switch in May

Miitopia Switch

One surprise reveal from yesterday’s Nintendo Direct was the announcement of Miitopia. Miitopia originally launched worldwide in 2017 for Nintendo 3DS and will be getting a second life with some upgrades on Nintendo Switch. As the name implies, throughout the game you’ll be utilizing your Mii characters to go on an epic JRPG-inspired adventure.

The Nintendo Switch version of Miitopia boasts HD visuals and also includes a couple new features. Nintendo has confirmed that you’ll be able to further customize your Mii characters with makeup and wigs, adding a bit more personality to the adventure, and you can ride a horse. Miitopia also features the ability to develop relationships between your party, adding positive and negative effects to the turn-based combat.

Fans have been hankering for more use of Miis on Switch for quite some time, so this is the perfect game for it. This has got people thinking whether or not Tomodachi Life will receive a similar treatment, which is another game that relied on the use of Miis. That game was a more relaxed experience, offering a life simulator similar to the Animal Crossing series, albeit with less interactivity.

Miitopia launches on May 21 and is currently available to preorder on the Nintendo eShop. The game will retail for $49.99 USD / £39.99 GBP. Are you excited for Miitopia on Switch?
