Cool that this is being localized--I'll check out the vid soon.
I do think it's a mistake calling it "Tomodachi" anything, though. Kind of a weird and uninviting title, and sounds a whole lot like "Tamagotchi" to me (and probably plenty of the people they're targeting with this game).
@r_hjort Plenty of love for Shibata San, he is capable of a very wry smile which I like a lot. My only grumble is that he lacks the flow, but I suppose he needs to appeal to so many different languages and cultures over here that maybe slow and steady is the right approach.
Didn't realise it had been announced for Europe too - joy!
@Anand *sniff* I guess... Although I suppose I could add Miis of my friends even though they live in other parts of the country these days, but it would be cool if the people in game were the same I hung out with IRL every day.
@Super_Conzo Ah, yeah, he doesn't have the same flow, that's true.
This is honestly the funniest thing I've seen it a least a month. I love Nintendo's sense of humor. Something about the thought that the people interacting like that are businessmen. Like, these people got degrees. They're responsible for the company's wellbeing. They handle million dollar decisions. And there they are, fighting over a date with Samus and dancing around a Virtual Boy. What? This reminds me of something Sega would make on the Dreamcast. And it's beautiful.
