Join the Tomodachi Life Friendship Fiesta from 30th July until 9th August


20/07/2015

20th July, 2015 – Every day brings new surprises in Tomodachi Life, the quirky game for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems that gets better the more friends and family members you bring into it as Mii characters. And with more than 1.5 million sales in Europe alone, the population of Mii friends just keeps on growing! So with 30th July a celebration of friendship all over the world, Nintendo of Europe is inviting you to join the Tomodachi Life Friendship Fiesta celebrations from 30th July until 9th August, with a host of fun activities for Nintendo 3DS system owners.

International StreetPass relay lets players meet Mii characters from all over Europe via dedicated hotspots while the fiesta lasts. For Tomodachi Life players this provides an opportunity to receive plenty of new explorers and buy unique Export Items from faraway islands into their game, whilst sending your own explorers on a fantastic voyage of their own. Anyone new to the game will be happy to hear that during the fiesta they can get a 30% discount on the regular price if they purchase the game on Nintendo eShop*.

Of course, ultimately this is a celebration of friendship, so anyone with a Nintendo 3DS system can share in the fun! Just take a look at all the activities taking place during the Tomodachi Life Friendship Fiesta from 30th July until 9th August:

  • Go to a Nintendo Zone** to receive a free download code for the Tomodachi Speech Bubble HOME Menu theme for your Nintendo 3DS family system.
  • A dedicated Puzzle Swap panel will be distributed via SpotPass to all owners of a Nintendo 3DS family system.
