In Miitopia, you’ll journey through a vast world battling enemies on a mission to rescue faces stolen by the villainous Dark Lord. Miitopia lets you customize your quest by creating Mii characters of your friends and family, or anyone you choose. You can then cast them in a hilarious series of escapades! Watch your grandma do pushups. Watch your neighborhood friend hang out with your cousin at the beach. Your older brother can even come to life as the Dark Lord, if you’re feeling mischievous! Check out the game’s overview trailer here to see it in action.

You’ll have even more customization choices when creating your Mii characters in Miitopia with the addition of wigs and makeup. In this whimsical adventure, you can assign your Mii characters personalities, along with jobs like Warrior, Chef and Pop Star which will determine their approach to combat. You’ll be able to gain experience and level up characters throughout your expeditions and enjoy a smorgasbord of food to boost stats. This’ll keep you in fighting shape for all your battles against wacky foes like the gyrating Twerkey!
