The first step in starting your new life is simple but oh-so-important: creating your Mii characters. Base them on family, friends, co-workers, famous actors, historical figures - you name it.
There are several ways to add Miis to your island. You can quickly import existing Miis from your system's Mii Maker.
Or, if you'd prefer to create a new Mii, choose whether you'd like to build it from scratch, or start from a photo.
Select a few basics, such as gender and hair and eye color. You can choose your islander's face, hairstyle, and more.
Or, you can snap a photo with your system's camera and use that as a base to customize your Mii.
Don't worry...you can always edit your Mii if it's not just right.
Not only do you set your Mii's name, birthdate, and voice, but you also decide what personality type they have. Are they confident or easygoing? A leader or a free spirit? Set a level for each attribute, and see which personality type your Mii ends up with.
What Mii personality type would you be on Tomodachi Island?
Now that you've created some Miis, you can sit back and see what they do. Stop by their apartments to give them gifts, play games, or just say "hello."
Each Mii has a "Happiness" score, which you can boost by doing them favors or solving their problems. They might even reward you if they're in a good mood!
You can add to your island's population (up to 100 total) at any time by visiting the Town Hall.
See a Mii that you like? You can import Miis by scanning QR Code® patterns created by other players - and share your own Miis with others.
Tomodachi Life is all about the Miis. That's why we've made it super easy to share your Miis and import them from others. Don't be shy - give it a try!
How would you like to play videogames with Christina Aguilera? Or sing karaoke with Shaquille O'Neal? Well, you can. Or at least, your Mii can, when you scan the QR Code patterns below and import these celebs into your Tomodachi Life game starting June 6.
Don't keep your brilliant creations all to yourself. You can send and receive Miis directly with your friends via Local Play. Or, you can create QR Code patterns for each of your favorite Miis and share with your friends.
To get started, just visit the Town Hall and choose the QR Code option. Select "Create QR Code" and follow the instructions. Share your QR Code with other players, and they'll be able to import your Mii onto their islands.
