Miitopia review: A funny but shallow adventure that favours titters over tactics

Nintendo’s cult 3DS RPG gets a second chance, but don’t expect a deep experience

Kouichi Kawamoto (Producer), Yoshiki Ueda (Programming Lead)

As an RPG, Miitopia is about as light as it gets, meaning anyone looking for a modicum of depth will be let down. It's content being a light-hearted, laugh-focused piece of entertainment that doesn't require much thought or skill, and as long as you're content with that too you should have a good time.

  • Extensive character customisation and sharing system
  • Has a wonderfully endearing sense of humour
  • A huge visual improvement over the 3DS version
  • Its RPG mechanics are extremely shallow
  • Loses a lot of charm if you don't customise each character
3 / 5
