A couple of months ago, Nintendo and EA announced they would be coming together and making a Sims type game for both the Nintendo Wii and DS. Not much was discussed on what to expect from the game besides a whole bunch of cutesy screenshots and trailer.
The Official Nintendo Magazine (UK) has revealed that your character starts off in a small rundown town, with a crappy house and very few residents. Your job is to fix and upgrade the town’s look to attract new people to the town.
A couple of things that differentiate this game from the Sims is in MySims, you will not be restricted to a single house. Instead, you will be able to walk around your town in order to meet people. Also, MySims features a block-building mechanic which allows you to build furniture for your house from the ground up, instead of the “purchasing from catalog” Sims way.
MySims does have one great similarity with ‘The Sims’ and that is MySims will allow you to customize everything about your Sims’ like facial features, skin, clothing style and even tattoos! I think the first Sim I’ll try to re-create is a cute little Mike Tyson, with matching facial tattoo. No one take my idea!!
