Miitopia Offers Free eShop Demo Today

Adventure Knocks Twice


Miitopia | Overlord

Much as I love gaming on Switch, there are days I get misty about the good old 3DS days. While most all features are improved in the latest console, the 3DS had a lot of fun and unique elements, especially Miis. Those customizable avatars that let you put whoever you wanted into your adventure. One game that did a great job of utilizing Miis was the original Miitopia. It’s a crazy and humorous RPG about teaming up with friends to defeat an evil overlord. Now, the upcoming Switch version of Miitopia has a free demo on the eShop.

Miitopia | Classes

As to what’s featured in the demo, you can read about that below:

In this demo of the game’s first area, you’ll be able to create and customize your Mii characters with wigs and makeup. While it can be fun to play as a Mii character that looks like you, Miitopia also lets you cast your friends, family or anyone you choose to star in your journey. Watch your characters come to life as your best friend and dear old grandma team up to topple the face-stealing Dark Lord, who just so happens to resemble your grumpy uncle.

Miitopia | Customize

With the use of Nintendo Switch Online, you’ll also be able to share and receive Mii characters with friends, as well as download popular Mii characters from the Nintendo 3DS version of Miitopia. Pair up your Mii characters at inns to build their relationships for some personality-packed interactions. Characters may also learn skills like “lend a hand” and help each other out during scuffles. Bring your friends into battle for side-splitting fun in this comedy-filled quest!

Miitopia | Angry Horse

Your save data from the demo can carry over to the full game when purchased, so if you enjoy your first bite, head over to Nintendo eShop to pre-purchase the full smorgasbord of swashbuckling silliness.

If that all sounds promising, you’ll be able to pick Miitopia up May 21st for $49.99. If you’re not sure, be sure to try the demo out in advance, watch the trailer below and see if the game is for you!
