Tomodachi Life announced for June 6th in crazy Nintendo Direct


This is like a weird fever dream featuring Nintendo executives.

A while back we got word that Nintendo was going to be bringing over the incredibly popular Tomodachi Collection. Today, Nintendo released a surprise Nintendo Direct that detailed the game mechanics and the release date for the US and Europe. It also revealed a localized name: Tomodachi Life. I bet you weren't expecting them to keep the "tomodachi" in the title, were you?

This Nintendo Direct is one of the best things I've ever seen though. Bill Trinen dreams about dating Samu, Reggie and Iwata duke it out, Miyamoto confesses to Princess Peach, and the whole Direct ends with a musical number. It's patently insane, and it totally sold me on the game. It comes out June 6th, and I am buying it day one. You've convinced me, Nintendo.

It's only 11 minutes, so check it out. Did it sell you on Tomodachi Life?
