Nintendo announced today that Miitopia is releasing in North America on July 28, the same day the New Nintendo 2DS XL and Hey! Pikmin hit store shelves. It’s a bit strange that Nintendo didn’t announce this date a few weeks ago when it announced the game was coming westward in the Nintendo Direct.
Nintendo implemented a similar strategy when it launched its New Nintendo 3DS XL a few years ago alongside The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask and Monster Hunter 4. It helps to create a sort of second system launch to get people into stores to buy up products.
Miitopia is a unique RPG that utilizes the Mii characters on your system as playable characters in the game. It’s up to your team of Miis to defeat the Dark Lord who has stolen the faces of the townspeople of Miitopia. Check out our preview for more information.
