Tomodachi Life Personality Guide: Dreaming Up Life Aplenty

Nintendo’s new 3DS title, Tomodachi Life, is a tough game to explain. It’s not so much a game as it is a charmingly odd, personal experience. It’s essentially Animal Crossing meets The Sims with a dash of WarioWare to keep things interesting. In TL, players populate their personalized island with Miis, which they create from scratch, or transfer from Mii Maker. Much like The Sims, players are encouraged to make Miis of their friends and loved ones to make the experience far more personal and engaging.

Before a Mii can roam the island, players must determine their name, nickname, birthday, designation as a “Grown-Up or Kid”, and voice, but good luck getting them to sound like anything other than Microsoft Sam. Next comes the most critical factor determining how a Mii will get along with the other islanders: personality. There are four basic personality types, each with 4 sub-types, making sixteen unique personalities in all. How you rate the Mii in five simple categories (Movement, Speech, Expressiveness, Attitude, and Overall) determines they’re personality. The only problem with this simplified system is it can very easily misrepresent reality, potentially dubbing the Mii of your most dimwitted friend as a “Brainiac”! But have no fear, fellow perfectionists! By following this trusty guide, you’ll be sure to get the personality you’re looking for.

While the following responses will yield the personalities indicated, there is a bit of wiggle room. If, in your heart of hearts, you know you’re friend Bob is only “pretty quirky” and not “extremely quirky”, relax. You’ll still probably get the personality you are looking for. If not, you can always go back and change your answers at any time.
