- This article covers differences between the regional varities of Tomodachi Life, such as the original Japanese version, the North American version, and the European version. For differences between the games in the series such as Tomodachi Collection and Tomodachi Life, see Tomodachi (Series).
Tomodachi Collection: New Life (トモダチコレクション 新生活 Tomodachi Korekushon: Shin Seikatsu?) was released in Japan on April 18th 2013, featuring many animations and items that reflect Japanese culture. Tomodachi Life is the localised version of the game, featuring minor changes to the gameplay that reflect the differences in culture between America, South Korea, Europe and Japan.
The primary gameplay has not been altered between the localizations, with the player put in charge of the Island, tasked with populating the island with new residents, maintaining their happiness and allowing them to establish friendships with fellow islanders.
The island and islanders
- The Japanese version lacks the observation tower and the Nintendo 3DS Image Share. The rooftop of Mii Apartments acts as the Japanese equivalent to the observation tower. The rooftop only appears as a hidden location in western versions.
- In the Japanese version, it is possible for two Miis, one a child and the other an adult, to marry and have children (with the child using a Age-o-matic). To avoid controversy, this feature was altered in western versions so Miis can only marry if they are in the same age group.
- In the Japanese version, Miis nap directly on the floor of the room instead of on blue mats.
- In the Japanese version, the icon displayed when a Mii is having a dream is the kanji for Yume (夢 Yume?). In Western versions, the icon is replaced by one of a night sky with a crescent moon, due to many western audiances being unfamiliar with the yume symbol.
- In the Japanese version, purple embers appear around Miis when they are sad or sick. In Western versions, these are replaced by a small rain cloud appearing over the Mii's head.
- Tomodachi Collection: New Life features a mini-game with an appearance similar to sumo wrestling. In the American version of Tomodachi Collection: New Life the mini-game has an appearance similar to American football and is titled Football in response to the theme change, the European versions have an appearance similar to Greco-Roman wrestling.
- The hand gestures are different. In Tomodachi Collection: New Life when two Miis become friends or make up they will bow to each other. In Tomodachi Life, Miis will wave their hand.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life when a Mii wants to play a game with you, it will rapidly move its arm in a beckoning motion. In Tomodachi Life, the Mii will repeatedly jump up and down while waving its arms.
- When giving a Mii a catchphrase in Tomodachi Collection: New Life, there are two options, one for how the Mii identifies themself and another with the normal catchphrase. There are no gestures to go with the catchprases. In Tomodachi Life, there is one option for a catchphrase, featuring 9 gestures.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, when the parents are suggesting a name for a child, they will first suggest a made-up name which combines elements taken from the two parent's names.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, grey clouds containing Japanese or Korean symbols appear around Miis when they want to confess, propose, have a baby, or misses their ex-lover. In Tomodachi Life, these are replaced by pink hearts containing question marks.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, the Mii's blood type can be selected (A, B, O, or AB). This is excluded in Tomodachi Life.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, the text of the highest relationship status in each category which in Tomodachi Life is written in dark green, is actually written in magenta.
- In the Japanese version, when viewing the Mii's face in close-up and it tells them, "Don't stare! It makes me nervous!", the area between its eyes will blush with red marks, a common running gag in anime. Due to many western players being unfamiliar with this gag, their cheeks simply blush in western versions.
- Some poses were changed. In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, if an Outgoing or Easygoing Mii has a love-related problem, it will look like it's crying. Due to how horrific it would look to children, the Mii has a worried thinking pose in localized versions.
- The idle poses are changed a bit. For instance, for an Easygoing Mii, in the Japanese version, their arms are straight as they swing their head and arms back and forth. While this animation is still used in Western versions, their arms are bent back a little.
- The eating animation is different. In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, after a Mii finishes eating, it wipes its mouth with one arm. In Tomodachi Life, it wipes it mouth with its hands.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, when Miis are given any ingestible items such as foods and medicine, Miis will always say the humble Japanese expression, itadakimasu (いただきます) which is a cultural expression of gratitude normally used before meals. In Tomodachi Life, Miis do not say anything.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, when you call a Mii back who is temporarily away from their apartment, certain Miis will immediately bow to the player after rushing into the room.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, an open mouth is used as the icon for a phrase. Due to how this would not appeal to the target audiance, this is replaced by a man with a speech bubble in western versions.
- Certain genres were removed and new ones were created. Tomodachi Collection: New Life contains 6 songs: Rock & roll, pop, enka (Japanese traditional song), opera, metal, and rap. Tomodachi Life contains 8 songs: metal, pop, rock & roll, rap, ballad, opera, techno and musical.
- Lyrics for the European and American version have some minor differences.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, daily donations are collected in a wooden box. In Tomodachi Life, daily donations are collected in a glass piggy bank.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life a rhyming game known as Shiritori (しりとり) takes place. The next word spoken has to use the last character of the last word. It uses hiragana and katakana. In the American version of Tomodachi Life, the event was removed, and Rap Battle takes place instead. The European versions of Tomodachi Life however features both Rap Battle and an English version of Shiritori called Word Chain, which uses the same rules using Latin letters rather than Japanese characters.
- For the girls' and guys' meeting the questions/sentences have changed.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, The music in the cafe is taken from Tomodachi Collection with Miis singing in Japan. This was changed in Tomodachi Life and only has the music without the lyrics.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, between 8:00 pm and 12:00 pm, a married couple can sometimes be seen taking a bath together in their bathroom, sometimes with their child. Due to controversy, this scene was removed from all localized versions of the game, replacing it with a silhouette of one of the parents showering.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, the family album, has photos of the baby riding a swan toy through the living room and washing its dad's back in the bathroom. In Tomodachi Life, these photos are replaced with ones of the mother potty training the baby and the family playing soccer, respectively.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, the door to the backyard is solid glass. In Tomodachi Life, it is tiled glass.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, when rocking a 1 day old baby the live-action hands will be shown in a holding position. In Tomodachi Life, the hands are in a rocking position.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, when choosing to have a fully grown child stay, the family will be in the child's new apartment. In Tomodachi Life, they are still at their house.
- In the Japanese version, the "Superhero" dream only shows the Superheroine outfit, male and female Miis all get the same outfit.
- The hula wobble head in the Drive dream is changed to a protective charm dangling from the mirror in the Japanese version.
- In the Korean version of the Ritual dream, the Miis will circle around another Mii, dressed in cultlike robes and waving large asian fans. To avoid religious references, the Mii was replaced with a food or treasure.
- In Tomodachi Collection: New Life, the stick figure in the "Stick Figure" dream is hanging from a rope. The rope was removed in all localized versions of the game, to prevent suicidal references.
- In the Japanese version, a dream known as "Familiar" is present, featuring the island from Tomodachi Collection with the original background music from that game. As Tomodachi Collection was never released outside of Japan, this dream is not present in other versions.
- The thoughts on the matter line begins with "We asked some islanders their opinions." in the UK version of Tomodachi Life. However, In the American version, The line in the begining is "We asked some islanders for their thoughts on the matter.".
- In the ''[Mii]'s Temper'' newscast, the Mii will lie on the ground as they throw a fit. Due to this resembling a seizure, the Mii instead stomps around in the localized versions.
- In the "Mii Eraser" newscast, in Tomodachi Collection: New Life, the eraser is red. In Tomodachi Life, the eraser is blue, possibly because the color red would appear that the Mii is bleeding.
- In the "Toilet Takeover" newscast, there is a middle Mii near the door; in Tomodachi Collection: New Life, the Mii is on the left. In Tomodachi Life, it is on the right.
- For the announcement the Romance Ranking is unlocked, in Tomodachi Collection: New Life, there are two happy Miis (one of each gender). In Tomodachi Life, they are replaced with a single happy Mii with a heart in a speech bubble.
- The first background for the islander thoughts is different depending on the region. In Japan, an asian suburban street can be seen in the background. In North America and Europe, a European street is shown. The second background is always the same.
- Tomodachi Collection: New Life features shop keepers with Kuroko stage masks. The American version of Tomodachi Life features shop keepers with wooden block heads, the Korean version features shop keepers with yellow race car/motorcycle helmets as heads, and the European versions feature shop keepers with robot heads.
- A lot of items, clothes and food have been added to the translated version. Most of the unusual Japanese food that is not familiar with Western audiences have been taken out. The clothes have mostly been translated over but a lot of new clothing has been added.
- The designs of some of the interiors are different, such as the Bathouse interior, along with a few interiors that do not appear in localized versions, due to them being unfamiliar with western audiances.
- The Ninja Suit has a slightly altered appearance in the Japanese and Korean versions, lacking the facial scarf that was present in other versions.
- Clothing from the Nintendo StreetPass have been added to the EU/US versions as regular clothing. Traditional Japanese clothes and school uniforms have been swapped around.
- The Kid-o-matic item does not exist in the Japanese version.
- The Age-o-matic is only temporary in the Japanese version. It is only permanent on child couples or mixed adult and child couples who marry. The effect is cancelled when they divorce.
- The accents of a Mii's voice are changed regionally, presumably due to the difference in available languages in each game. For instance, the American version has Miis with American accents, while the European version has Miis with British accents.
- SpotPass items have been discontinued in the US as of May 16, 2016. In the EU, it was extended for another year.
- In the EU, update 2.0 was released; this is yet to be released in the US.
