Miitopia is a mobile jRPG developed for 3DS. The game allows the player to take control of Mii, humanoid avatars that are a virtual representation of player profiles since the release of Nintendo Wii. The game is characteristic for its simple, aesthetic graphics, while the gameplay itself is quite complex and offers a RPG-esque character development system based on experience points.
The world of Miitopia is in chaos, as a villain calling himself Dark Lord has stolen the unique faces of its citizens. Our job is to gather a party consisting of our Nintendo friends, and lead the team on a quest to defeat the powerful enemy and restore the stolen faces.
In essence, the game is a typical RPG with standard set of classes, including a thief or a cleric. The game sees us explore a large world which further parts are unlocked with our progress. All battles are turn-based, while the gained experience points allow us to enhance various attributes, abilities, or introduce new spells. Miitopia also contains a unique mechanic – the party is characterized by its friendship meter, which offers additional special attacks if the party members get along well with each other.
The players from our friends list build our team from created Mii avatars. The game also contains numerous minigames that allow additional reflex-based challenge. In all, we are looking at a light-hearted, casual title.
The characters and the world are three-dimensional, yet the game itself is often seen from a two-dimensional perspective. Even if the graphics are not that spectacular, the framerate is smooth, while the visuals are neat and pleasing.
