TSA writes: "Nintendo plan to release their new 3DS simulation game Tomodachi Life early next month. In it, players will have the ability to create “virtually anyone they can think of”. However, the problem with creating an alternate world is that the real world can never be fully represented in a simulation. Nintendo have worked around around this problem fairly easily: avatars will live on an island where their characters live an exaggerated life, and where simple actions can have unexpected results.
The players will be in Mii form, allowing them to retain their Nintendo persona, and the dialogue will be intentionally unrealistic, over-the-top and in line with Nintendo’s usual humour. Despite this, the characters lives will still be restricted in at least one way – there will be no same-sex relationships."
