The Strange and Wacky World of Miitopia
Miitopia came out on Friday last week. I bought the game on Friday and have played it a lot since then. Today, I want to provide you with some impressions of Miitopia. What do I think of the game so far?
A villian is going around stealing faces from Miis and its your job to get those faces back. Thats the basic plotline of Miitopia. There is a little bit more to it, all the time, but I don’t want to spoil too much about the plot. Reader be warned though, there may be some minor spoilers in this article.
Miitopia is a very strange game. It is, for the most part, an rpg that you put your Miis into, though there is some sim elements to it too. But so far, its not the gameplay that is the best part of Miitopia. Don’t get me wrong: the gameplay is good, but its Miitopia’s writing thats stealing the show.
You just never know what your Miis will say or do. One second you’ll be walking along and two of your Mii characters will stop. They will have some strange conversation about clothes or taking over the world or the current plotline. You may even find your characters camping out somewhere at night and stargazing. The events in Miitopia are highly unpredictable, for the most part.
Unfortunely, I have noticed some repetition in the game. There are some lines that the Miis say that get repeated over and over when the characters are walking around. I’ve also had some of the same events happen in the Inn more than once. But you won’t be able to predict whats going to happen next in Miitopia. Will the characters say and do something new or repeat an old line or scene? You just don’t know until you see it. The same goes for the actual plotline of the game but I’m going to avoid giving away any details about that.
I think Miitopia is going to out weird Tomodachi Life. Of course not everyone will like this game’s humor. I’m sure there will be some people that will groan and roll their eyes at Miitopia. The game has a special brand humor that will appeal to anyone that liked Tomodachi Life and/or anyone who is just plain weird themselves.
Miitopia is a fun game too. There’s just so much to it, even when you get past how strange (and wonderful) the writing is. On Wednesday, I will start my review-in-progress for this game and take a look at Miitopia’s rpg battle system.
Please keep an eye out for my upcoming Miitopia coverage! There will be a lot. And eventually, I’ll have a full review. This is all coming your way via GamesReviews.com!
