Tomodachi Life is Japanese for Friends Life. Nintendo kept the 3DS exclusive life simulator game every bit as wacky as its Japanese original and it shows… “All hail the Virtual Boy!” is an ode in the game from Nintendo of Japan’s Shigeru Miyamoto & Nintendo of America President Reggie Films-Aime to the 3DS’s 3D forefather, the Virtual Boy system. A special treat for fans of both 3D systems like me. ๐Ÿ˜€
