Tomodachi Collection May Be Coming West

According to the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo is currently working on localizing Tomodachi Collection: New Life for 3DS, one of their most successful games in Japan. Tomodachi Collection, or “Friend Collection,” involves players living life as a Mii, interacting with other Miis and performing daily activities, in the vein of Nintendo’s smash hit Animal Crossing.

While no comment has been made by Nintendo, the game seems well equipped to become the next big 3DS sensation, much like the Animal Crossing fever that hit millions of players last summer. In the midst of so many changes occurring at Nintendo, it will be interesting to see if a few more of Nintendo’s quirkier titles start making their way west.
