Top Ten Things That Should Be Added to the Game Tomodachi Life

The Top Ten

1 More family options

I had Ron and Ginny Weasley from "Harry Potter" (among other "Harry Potter" characters- and characters from many other sources) on my island, but could not set their relationship to brother and sister. For nearly an entire YEAR they did not even acknowledge each other's existence, and when they did finally meet every time I played I had to hope and pray they did not divorce the spouses they'd already married and try to pursue each other romantically. I finally had to boot them and most of their HP "co-stars" because it was becoming too much.

I have Reese and Cyrus, who are canonically married to each other, on my island. I should have been able to just set them as "married" from the get-go rather than spend every game session hoping no one else took an interest in either of them or vice versa before they finally met each other, Reese asked Cyrus out, and Cyrus proposed.

I would love this, since I had to turn one of my cousins into an adult because my other cousins (who are his siblings in real life) kept wanting to date him.

I have characters I want to get married, and that would be easier to pre-set that. You can’t pre-set any family relationships unless the character is related to you, which annoys me.

2 Gay couples

In the meantime, nothing's stopping anyone from passing off one half of a gay couple as the opposite gender thus the couple can still happen. Sure that means the game uses the wrong pronouns, a lesbian who actually does wear dresses or a gay guy who actually doesn't wear women's clothing end up in suits and dresses respectively during certain scenes, and the resulting couple can still have babies, but small price to pay.

They didn't remove it, it was never added.

3 More than 100 apartments

250 apartments per save file, and let's add the ability to have 3 save files. This should be a thing on Tomodachi Life on the Switch. - KalloFox34

4 More outfits for miis

I want like other Nintendo costumes

5 More hair and face options when you create a mii

I want all my girl miis to have long hair most of the hairs when you create a mii are shoulder length

6 Odd hair colors that are permanent and get passed on to babies

We all love the hair color spray for giving Marth his blue hair, Lum her green hair, or even using the orange and yellow shades to make redheads and blondes respectively more accurate than the Mii Maker allows. However, you always have to re-spray Marth or whoever's hair after baths, and babies get whatever a parent's "natural" hair color was if one or both parents have dyed hair. That first one is very annoying in regular play, and that second one can only be dealt with if the child stays on as a resident.

I really wish they were permanent! It is really annoying how they aren't to common, so sometimes you have to wait to give a character you made the correct hair color. Also, it comes off if you give them a bath set, which is also annoying if someone with a hair color spray hair color wants a bath.

7 Married couples can have more babies

That was already added but that can happen if the first child is grown up. The brothers and sisters won't live with each other

8 Have your Mii go past level 99
9 You get to choose their nationality

My miis are supposed to be American so I want them to be American, and you can choose American, Australian, English, Canadian, Asian, African, and Scandinavian

Kind of exists, the Mii Maker has skin colors. - KalloFox34

10 You get to record your own voice for your miis

You would have 2 options record your own voice, or just the main thing where you can change the pitch and all that other stuff.

The Newcomers

? Neighborhood
? Greater variety of mii news reports


The Contenders

11 A royalty status for royal miis

I once made an island where all my miis were princesses, queens, and princes they should have an option if they are royal or not

12 More prize options when miis level up

Right now I'm thinking T.V. should be added

13 Some acknowledgment of "pregnancy"

Not necessarily a noticeable belly, but once you've answered a baby request in the affirmative at least the random comments from mother or father should include something along the lines of how they're looking forward to the blessed event. There have been times I'd told a couple they could have a baby then forgotten I'd done so between then and when they announced the birth.

14 More minigames
15 Permanent pets

Not this rent a dog rent a cat nonsense currently in the game. Actually being able to give residents a dog or cat to keep, and one that you can interact with as well.

I don't even have the game but I am still wanting this stuff to happen - toptenforlife

My real-life cat had to be put down recently, and if I could add a cat that looks like him for my Mii to just keep as a pet rather than have random cats occasionally show up in my apartment, I totally would; I miss him so much.

I would love this! It would also be cool if they added some Nintendo characters (such as Pikachu or toad) that could be your Mii's pet.

We need more pets

16 More than one save file
17 Festivals and holidays

You know, like in Animal Crossing?

18 Turn off relationships and break-ups

As with babies, it wouldn't effect any break-ups that have already occurred and any relationships (including marriages) already present won't be terminated. Meanwhile, no need to worry about characters you don't want hooking up (or third parties trying to play matchmaker) or any couples you want to stay together (mainly real-life- say, you and your actual spouse/significant other- or canon in the source material couples- say, Cosmo and Wanda- that haven't actually broken up) splitting up.

God, break-ups can be annoying. Alternatively, you can choose a Mii's friends when you create one (so that it's like they already know each other) - KalloFox34

19 More fantasy

Miis can be fantasy characters like vampires, werewolves, fairies, superheros, mermaids, warriors, and monsters

20 Ability to see what Mii's are watching on TV/Tablet

That and maybe play the game consoles with them, like have the game consoles be another way to play Tomodachi Quest or something.

21 The possibility for other people besides rival love interests to potentially interrupt love confessions

Like a disapproving parent or a best friend who isn't on great terms with the would-be sweetheart.

22 Related miis get to live in an apartment together

Like I said on #1 related miis like siblings can live together and they can move out if you don't like them living together.

23 Ability to turn off requests for new clothes/hats and new interiors

Even better, just take that out completely. Most of my Miis are of certain characters and I finally got them the outfits that most closely resemble what they actually wear, so of COURSE they keep telling me "I'd like some new clothes". Ugh!

Especially for Miis who already have one of the "hairstyles" with a hat attached. Stop asking for a hat to wear over the one you've got and in fact even wear to bed and during baths!

Seriously, how many of those does a person even *need*? It's like they won't rest until you've given them every such item in the game, it's very, very annoying!

24 Government

That would be interesting. - KalloFox34

Itwould be fun to have leaders of the island, elections, etc

25 Make Miis and Kid Miis go to school

I would certainly think it would be funny to see your least favorite miis to go to school. I have three miis that are my least favorite

That would be funny

26 Add more technology

Yes - Ikura

Miis should be able to use the computer/watch T.V. when you want them to. - KalloFox34

27 Be able to choose a mii's class in tomodachi quest

I have a Mii that is supposed to be a brawler, but in Tomodachi Quest he is a swordfighter. Also, I have a Nurse Joy Mii that is a mage instead of a healer. I wish I could choose their classes!

28 Family photos with babies can also include siblings if there are any

Right now the only baby photo options are with the parents or the baby by itself. There was one couple whose daughter I'd kept and I wish I could have included her in the "family pictures" I took when her brother was born.

29 Have all outfits available to everyone in the portrait studio and concert hall

Yes, you can change a Mii's outfit just for a photo or song/stage performance, but only into outfits they already own themselves. And I'm not going to give someone, say, formal wear or something like the dinosaur suit I wouldn't want them wearing any other time just for a picture or performance.

It's called "renting costumes". Real-life theaters and photo studios let you dot that.

30 Birthday cake available when it's not your birthday

At least after your first in-game birthday party (literally the only place to get a birthday cake), it should become available at the food mart or morning market, or with the frying pan. I mean, I wouldn't mond only getting a birthday cake on my actual birthday, but for the fact that it can still be somebody's favorite or worst food.

31 Perform plays

In "Suikoden III" once certain conditions were met you could actually have the characters perform either scenes from a public domain source (e.g. "Romeo and Juliet", "The Little Match Girl") or from the first two games (provided you were using a memory card that also contained save files of those first two games). I'd love to be able to do that with my island residents like I can have them do concerts. As with "Suikoden", public domain plays and stories could be used as well as maybe a skit or more taken from other Nintendo games ("Mario, "Zelda", "Kid Icarus", "Metroid", "Fire Emblem", etc). Like the songs, these would be given as level-up rewards and anyone who had been given the script could be involved in that play.

32 Make miis you hate go to school

That would be funny to see your least favorite miis go to school

33 More slots for daily food items
34 Being able to see them have sex

No! Not a good idea! Especially for the fact that the Tomodachi series is child-friendly! - Jasmine21064

Than the game will be rated T

Trust me, Nintendo will NEVER make an M rated game. - N64Dude

No! Absolutely not! Nintendo is for kids. They would never make their child friendly games have sex in it. >:(

35 Being able to see them change

If you mean clothes, then it was already added in the game.

Ok fine let's see them get naked.

36 Ability to make anyone a traveler, not just raise babies to be travelers

If your island is full or almost full but you still want to add someone, having the option to have any current resident become a traveler is better than being forced to delete them.

37 Daily phone calls

When th smother says that they can't send their child off right now, it is a problem since I have so many islanders waiting at the port, and Farlina had been on the port from March 20, 2016 to April 21, 2017. - AyHaq

38 Being able to move the houses in the Mii Homes area

When a married couple gets divorced or you delete one or both of a married couple, their house disappears leaving an empty spot where it had been. Problem is, you can't rearrange any of the other houses so you'll have a very odd layout until another couple marries therefore taking that spot.

39 The ability to pick the dancers in songs

Sometimes a Mii sings a song, and then Miis that are supposed to be their enemies are dancing with them. Or my Mii sings a song, and then my least favorite Miis are dancing with my Mii!

40 Have Miis still be mad after they reject an apology after a fight
41 A shoe store

We NEED one

42 A school
43 Have colored hair without hair dye
44 A traits system

The personality quiz won't be totally removed, but you can choose which one you can use to determine a Mii's personality. - KalloFox34

45 Behavior based on personality
46 Add a stable
47 Nintendo characters

It would be cool if they were Nintendo characters but if it is on the list I’m ded

48 Cars
49 More control over miis
50 Make miis die

Nah, kids wouldn't like that much. - KalloFox34
