Nintendo releases a free demo for Miitopia ahead of launch

Nintendo has today released a free demo for Miitopia ahead of the game's launch next month.

The demo supports online capabilities if you have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription, allowing players to send & receive Miis. Save data from the demo, which includes the game's first area, can also be carried over to the full version once it launches.

A quick trailer and description from Nintendo can be found below. Miitopia for Nintendo Switch is set to release on May 21, priced at $49.99. For more details, you can check out the announcement information.

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.

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!

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.
