You begin in a town attacked by the Dark Lord, who steals the faces of townspeople and plants them onto peaceful creatures -- transforming them into monsters. You gather a party of heroes, who can resemble famous people or those in your family. They help you work to defeat the Dark Lord's monsters and free the townspeople's faces.
As you progress, you unlock jobs for your party, such as Warrior, Thief, or even a Pop Star. Each of these offers unique abilities, like the Warrior is great at melee combat. Along the way your party builds relationships with one another, benefitting your effectiveness in battle. For example, if a character praises another after they defeat an enemy, it grows their bond and gives a bonus to the recipient's next move.
Although these relationships have a life of their own, you can help by placing them in the same room during Inn rests, or getting them to support each other in combat with Skills like Healing. During these rest periods, you also send characters on independent expeditions in search of better equipment or items.
This results in a quirky, humourous adventure where the characters take on a social-life of their own. Some may find this becomes overly repetitive, but the simple interactions make it a game you can play casually while watching something else. It creates a novel experience that focuses on using the power of friendship to save the world.
Rated for younger players in the US. Rated ESRB EVERYONE for Crude Humor, Mild Cartoon Violence. Players engage in turn-based combat against "cartoony" enemy creatures (e.g., mummies, robots, imps). Smacking/zapping sounds, colorful light effects, and mild explosions are depicted as characters are hit. One enemy emits flatulence sounds and a cloud of gas from its buttocks during combat.
The game includes a Rock-Paper-Scissors and Roulette mini-game that have a light gambling theme. This enables you to gamble with your tickets to have a chance of getting better gear. We asked the VSC Rating Board about this aspect of the game, and it confirmed the following as the reason it is not rated PEGI 18 for gambling: "The Roulette game you refer to in Miitopia does not trigger the PEGI gambling criterion for a few reasons. Firstly, it’s more a brightly coloured ‘prize wheel’ than a traditional casino-style ‘roulette’ wheel on which specific bets are placed. Secondly, there is nothing taught beyond spinning the wheel and seeing which prize you receive. Thirdly, players always win a prize of items that can be used in-game, rather than running a risk of losing their Game Tickets and/or not getting anything. As such, it’s not teaching games of chance that are normally carried out in casinos."
7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game.
