Nintendo bringing over Tomodachi Collection?


Iwata drops a bomb in a recent WSJ interview.

Here's some good news from Nintendo this week: company president Satoru Iwata recently was interviewed by the Wall Street Journal on their plans to revitalize the company's lagging Wii U sales. However, Iwata dropped a little announcement in there: they're planning to bring over the popular 3DS title Tomodachi Collection, and were deciding on what content to localize or cut. Tiny Cartridge contacted Nintendo of America for a statement, but they simply said "we have nothing to announce at this time."

So, Iwata probably dropped that bomb a little early, but still -- that's some great news. The title sold incredibly well in Japan and I imagine Nintendo has high hopes for it here. It features your Miis living together on an island, and you plays games, complete various chores and activities, and generally live your life via a game. It sounds boring, but I've heard nothing but good things from folks who have played it. I'll definitely try it out when it arrives!

Here's a translated trailer for the game to explain things a bit better.

Anyone interested or excited?
