Miitopia: N-Direct presentation, official website, footage, details (incl. amiibo), screens, boxart, more

As announced on Wednesday, during the Animal Crossing Direct, a special Nintendo Direct presentation dedicated to the mysterious Miitopia was streamed today. While it didn’t follow the usual format, it did provide us with quite a lot of details about the game, which is a really wacky and unique RPG.

Here’s the presentation, in case you missed it:


Right after the presentation, Nintendo opened the official website for the game, which can be found there.

Miitopia – Official website: Introduction

Miitopia is a RPG unlike any other RPG, as the hero is you… or rather, your Mii. Together with the Mii of your friends, family, or even celebrities, you go on a grand adventure filled with… let’s say… “unique” events.

The website reveals that the world of the game is entirely inhabited by Mii: that goes for yourself and your party, but also the townspeople, the King, the Princess, the Demon Lord, and more. You can chose to go on an adventure with your friends in order to save the kingdom from your evil mother, for example… The possibilities are, quite simply, endless, and no doubt this will give birth to some really wacky stories.

Don’t want to bother populating the game’s world with your Mii manually? No problem: the game has a feature that does all that automatically, so you can go on your little adventure as soon as possible.

In Miitopia, you basically observe your Mii during their adventure, and support them any way you can (by grabbing a Mii and putting it in a safe spot during a battle, for example). Your Mii become stronger when they battle, as they earn XP and level up. All characters get some, but you can also chose to give some bonus XP to a specific character if you want.

You can also buy them some weapons, give them some food at the inn (which increases their stats), increase their bonds with each other, and more.

Naturally, battles are not your usual RPG battles: those in Miitopia are pretty comical, with funny situations arising all the time. Those become even funnier when it’s Mii based on people you know that are at the center of them all!

Finally, Nintendo reveals that the game is compatible with amiibo: you can tap of the 26 compatible amiibo and get a special costume based on the character scanned!

 Miitopia – Story

The game takes place in Miitopia, a world where Mii are living peacefully. But one day, the Demon Lord suddenly appears, and starts stealing the faces of the inhabitants and unleashing monsters, throwing the once peaceful world into chaos. As the hero, you receive the Power of the Gods, allowing you to fight the monsters. You then go on an adventure in order to save the world and restore peace.

In the world of Miitopia, you can find lush forests, steep mountains, vast plains, deserts… There’s many wonderful sceneries to discover, accompanied by some great music.

 Miitopia – Mii

In Miitopia, the characters are your favorite Mii. As mentioned above, this applies to all characters in the game, from your party to the Royal Family, and even the Demon Lord.

You can easily have your friends become characters, in three steps:

  • Step 1: chose their appearance. Fortunately, you can import Mii from various games/apps!
  • Step 2: chose their personality. You can chose among 7 different personalities, such as Gentle, Energetic, and more. The personality of a Mii will influence how they behave during battle, and the kind of actions they will take. You can chose to either go with a personality close to the actual person’s, or with something completely different: it’s for you to decide!
  • Step 3: chose their class. This will determine their role in battle. There’s a total of 12 classes available, such as Warrior, Magician, Monk, and more. Some of them are good at attacking, others focus on helping teammates: you have to take that into account when chosing the class of your characters. But the class also determines the appearance of your characters. If you’re not happy with the current classes of a particular Mii, you can always change later in the game, once you’ve progressed far enough. That way, you will be able to try out various classes, and find out the ones you prefer.

You can import your Mii from the following:

  • Tomodachi Life: you can import Mii you have created/imported in this game
  • Miitomo (via QR Code)
  • your friend list
  • Mii Studio (on Nintendo 3DS)
  • Mii Studio (on Wii U), via QR Code
  • from the internet
  • created them from scratch

Here’s the various types of personalities you can chose:

  • Kind
  • Energetic
  • Dopey
  • Stubborn
  • Carefree
  • Cautious
  • Cool

The website mentions that you will be able to download Mii: this is for players who don’t want to bother creating them, or don’t know how to do it. You can chose to download Mii uploaded by other players if you want. There’s also special popular Mii who can appear unexpectedly in your world (this is decided by voting). We’re given some examples: Hideyo Noguchi, Beethoven, and Marily Monroe.

 Miitopia – Job

  • Warrior: attacking and defending;
  • Magician: using fire and lightning-based attacks;
  • Monk: healing teammates;
  • Thief: setting traps;
  • Idol: singing and dancing;
  • Cook: cooking

There are a total of 12 classes, but only 6 have been revealed so far. You can find footage of the first 6 in the video above!

 Miitopia – Battles

In the game, you and your friends/family get to battle against various monsters. Of course, battles are all pretty comical. What your Mii end up doing depends on two main factors:

  • the skills from their class;
  • their personality.

During battle, how close two Mii are is crucial: if they’re friends, they can perform special actions together and get the upper hand. To improve the bond shared by two characters, you can place them in the same room at the Inn, and their affinity will increase. Naturally, your Mii also become stronger by winning battles and getting XP, but also various events.

If your Mii are in a pinch (low HP and/or MP), you can use the Power of the Gods. That power  seems to be stored in… salt and pepper shakers, and you simply sprinkle that power on your Mii to give them some HP or MP back. You can also grab one and put them in a safe zone.

One of the main elements of battles in Miitopia are special scenes that often takes place during battles. If you want, you can take some screenshots of those scenes, and then share them using the Image Share tool. Missed something really funny? No problem: videos of battles are saved, and you can rewatch them at any time (allowing you to take screenshots if you want).

 Miitopia – Inns

In a regular RPG, inns are places where your characters can rest in order to get their HP and MP back. But in Miitopia, it’s not their only function: it’s also a place where you can observe funny interactions between your characters. It’s also where you can increase the affinity between your characters, upgrade skills, buy strong weapons, and more.

When two Mii share the same room, they become friends. This also allows you to learn what they like and don’t like, which is pretty important for increasing the affinity between your Mii. The close two Mii are in, the stronger they will be in battle, allowing you to easily gain the upper hand. By the way, you’re free to take care of all your Mii equally, or only focus on two specific characters (to make them become really close).

Next: cooking. It’s a pretty important element in many RPG, and it’s also the case in Miitopia. When you feed your Mii with some delicious dishes, you can incease their stats: HP, MP, Attack, Defense, Vitality, Agility.

But what’s pretty interesting is that the dish you cook are linked to monsters. For example, you can find:

  • some tantalising Slime Jelly (increases HP)
  • some mouth-watering Goblin Ham (increases Attack)
  • some fresh Spider Rolls (increases Agility)

Naturally, your Mii have their own tastes, and if you feed them something they like, the dish’s effects will be even stronger.

But what would be a RPG without money? In Miitopia, you can use that money to purchase strong weapons for your Mii, but also some equipment.

 Miitopia – amiibo

As mentioned above, Miitopia is compatible with amiibo. If you tap a compatible amiibo, you get the costume based on the character scanned. There’s a total of 26 costumes available, and you can only get them once. If you scan the amiibo of the same character twice (like Mario and Dr Mario), you will get some game tickets instead of a costume the second time.
