As a gift to anyone who pre-ordered or picked up the game at launch, Atlus is making the “Disciple Weapon Pack” available for free for the first month. Afterwards, it will become paid DLC.

Tomodachi Life Takes Up Less Than 450 MB

Category: Uncategorized

The eShop version of Tomodachi Life will be pretty easy on the SD card when it launches on June 6.

Nintendo Life reports that the European version of the game weighs in at only 3,391 blocks, or roughly 434 MB. It’s hardly the smallest game available in the eShop, but it pales in comparison to juggernauts like Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate (11,653 blocks/1.5 GB), Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition (13,492 blocks/1.7 GB) or Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers (14,798 blocks/1.9 GB).

Morgan Freeman Singing About Shawshank and Batman in Tomodachi Life

Category: Uncategorized

Okay, so we know what you can’t do in Tomodachi Life, but do you know what you can do? Have Morgan Freeman perform a riveting ballad about his career, that’s what.

No, Morgan Freeman isn’t actually in this game. CVG’s Chris Scullion just imported a Mii with his likeness to show off the level of customization you have with performances.

“There are a number of different song styles you can unlock and ‘gift’ to your Miis,” Scullion explained. “When you choose a song style the melody is set for you and you’re shown the entire list of lyrics. You can then tap a line and change the words. You can change them to whatever you like (no swearing though), but the results are generally better if the number of syllables is the same as the default line because it fits the song better (that’s why the second line sounds rushed… too many syllables).”

Tomodachi Life was recently announced for North America and Europe. It will launch on June 6.

Nintendo Provides An Explanation for Patching Out Same-Sex Relationships in Tomodachi Life

Category: Uncategorized

Tomodachi Life 00

Last year, Nintendo released a patch for the Japanese version of Tomodachi Life that removed the ability for two male Miis to get married and have children.

Given the hot-button nature of the topic of same-sex relationships, it’s only natural that someone would want to reach out to Nintendo to hear why they patched them out. That’s exactly what freelance games writer Wesley Copeland did and he got the following response:

“Two developments occurred that led to some misunderstanding about this,” a representative for Nintendo said via email.

“First, as a result of a mistake in comprehension of Japanese, some people misinterpreted Japanese reports and fan activity and thought same-sex relationships were possible.

“This occurred because they saw Japanese fans posting game screenshots of male and female Mii characters, where female Mii characters were designed and clothed in such a way that they looked male. Since these explanations were made in Japanese by the Japanese fans who posted the images, the Japanese people do not have such a misunderstanding.

“Second, a critical bug occurred in the original Japanese version of the game which made it impossible for the player to continue the game.

“When Mii characters were imported from a Wii console, or the previous game in the Tomodachi Collection series on Nintendo DS (which was only released in Japan), into the Nintendo 3DS version, it could lead to scrambled Mii data within the Nintendo 3DS version.

“This could result in different Miis being randomly assigned to existing in-game relationships, such as already married Mii, or as just one other example, giving the appearance of same-sex relations. Because this bug caused the inability for the player to save the game data and continue the game, we released a patch.”

What it seems to boil down to is that it’s not Nintendo taking a hard-line stance on the subject of same-sex marriage as much as it is the company just trying to fix a problem with data migration.
