Actually I'd be down if they added significant online (Spotpass) functionality to all of the Streetpass games then bundled them all up into one retail title and added some other stuff.

Playing SP games out where I live is dang impossible cuz nobody else takes their 3DS out :(((

I would love a full-on Mii game with a storyline. These characters have become very iconic, even though they're usually generic avatars or background elements. An RPG is not a bad idea for the genre, but they have to be careful with the execution. There are many modern series that take on the "generic" traditional RPG, like Denpa Ningen. What would make a Mii RPG special?

Incidentally, I've always wondered what it would be like to explore Wuhu Island more freely. There's a cycling game in Wii Fit Plus that kind of touches the idea, and it's certainly nice. Expanding to more locations and adding Mii NPCs and a story would make it a very pleasant game.

They are trying so hard to make Mii stuff happen. Is anyone asking for this?
The phrase" trying to make ____ happen" generally refers to an unpopular thing that someone is trying to make popular.

Mii are popular. Have been popular. Still are popular.

Another possibility is a building-type game, kind of like Minecraft and Dragon Quest Builders. The Mii brand would fit well with that.

Maybe like the five million people who bought Tomodachi life?

Just a wild guess.
Mii Fighters also exist in Smash 4 because players asked so much after Brawl (according to Sakurai at least).

People like Miis. They've kind of become Nintendo's social mascot, and are increasingly divorced from the Wii itself.

Ooo that would sell hideously well in Japan.

Yeah it's amazing that people are still surprised by their presence.

Mii Plaza is my 3DS game of the generation.

The game I've spent the most time in ever.

I also love Miitomo and use it daily.

Maybe they will use the badges from Badge Arcade, as they hinted at by the Arcade Bunny. Just speculation.

This would please me and could be interesting to watch sales wise.

Any speculation on who in Nintendo worked on this? Not Grezzo or Arzest, but then again it might be a super bare bones project like AC amiibo festival where you need Streetpasses instead of amiibos so they might have this on the side.

I am looking forward to hearing more about this.

It sounds more like a social mii game. Which is Nintendo's forte. They clearly have street pass and mario party for mini games launching around the same period.

Hopefully it's a dystopian future where the Mii social structure has crumbled to the point where it's survival of the strongest and most brutal in Miitopia.

A social Mii game like Tomodachi Collection?
I'd be down for dungeon crawling with a bunch of Robert Downey Jr. Miis.

Miitomo connects to Miitopia?? The branding seems obvious no.
My first thought was Streetpasses, but if it's not that then the only other plausible Mii-mechanic would be letting you create your own Miis.

I don't think it will tie into TC, but I could see it having some form of connectivity with Miitomo!

Edit: Huh, you did write Miitomo, not Tomodachi Collection. I need to catch some ZZZs.

Bluetooth? Could it be a NFC reader for phone amiibo compatibility? Looks really similar to the old 3DS amiibo reader:

Enough with the Miis. Time to move on.
