Nintendo drops a Miitopia Switch demo and new trailers

Give the Nintendo Switch's latest RPG a shot from today

A strange, vampire-like man reaching towards you

Nintendo has now released a Switch demo for its upcoming revival of Miitopia. If you’re unfamiliar, this one lets you create your very own gang of Mii characters to face off against the bespectacled, vampire-like Dark Lord, who’s only gone and nicked the faces of Miitopia’s friendly locals – including the King’s. Throughout your quest, you’ll encounter plenty of strange creatures, from goblins and golems to killer hamburgers. It’s essentially a very casual RPG experience for all ages.

Notably, the original Miitopia launched back in 2016 for Nintendo 3DS, and to say that this new version’s existence came as something of a surprise would be a slight understatement. Still, it looks like a bit of very welcome and charming fun.

Beyond the demo, Nintendo has also revealed a couple of new trailers. One outlines the game’s Mii friendships and interactions, while the other dives into Mii creation and sharing.

If you’d like to give Miitopia a go ahead of its Switch release date on May 21, you can download the demo from the eShop right now.
