Positive messages, humor and wholesome RPG gameplay. Miitopia is an awesome and humorous game that promotes teamwork and friendships! (While you battle a boss who steals faces. )Adopt a horse! Go to space! Get jobs in the game that help you and your teammates!Have fun! Only thing is it got an 18+ rating in Russia for LGBTQ+ representation which is dumb. If you want your kids to accept people with all their quirks and not make fun of people in school this is the game!I almost forgot to mention that your mii characters can be given to other users via code to use in their games which is optional but still a privacy issue if you made yourself as a mii.

Is It Any Good?

While it has some good ideas, this basic game is at best an average RPG. From the overly simple fighting mechanics to the lackluster graphics and audio, to the repetitive nature of your tasks, there isn't much meat in Miitopia to sink your teeth into. Diehard fans of Nintendo and Mii universe, though, might find this entertaining. The first thing you'll notice is your party of characters is controlled by the game's AI, so you only control your main Mii while the others take their turns during combat. It's unsure if this was intentional on the developer's part from the beginning, but it's almost like the game plays itself. Combat can be enjoyable, as you encounter many different kinds of enemies and bosses, many of which involve some sort of funny exchange before the brawling begins, but it doesn't take long for the action to grow repetitive. The only fun and unpredictable wild card elements are AI-controlled Miis who might make a quick in-battle decision to change strategy, retreat, and so on (these are called "quirks").

Finding new gear and weapons is always fun, just like discovering secret paths, but once again, it feels like "rinse and repeat" the longer you play it, even with your party growing stronger over time and experience. This is true whether you're playing the 3DS version or the updated Nintendo Switch version. There are more options to customize your Miis, and there are a few additional segments that you'll engage in with your horse companion, but for the most part, it feels like you've played the content before in generic sequences. It's fun to customize the Miis -- they have personality and humor, there's a healthy representation of male and female fighters, and the RPG skill tree is quite in-depth -- but unless you're a Nintendo or turn-based RPG fan, this may not be the most engaging game for you.
