Tomodachi Life, a massive hit in Japan, will be released in North America and Europe in June.

The news comes out of an odd Nintendo Direct presentation posted above.

Here’s the word on the game straight from Nintendo:

Build a bustling fantasy population of friends, family and your favourite personalities from TV, movies and sports, as Mii characters come to life with their own voice and personality, all on one wild and hilarious island where there is something new to discover every time you check in. The real emotional connection you already share with your characters will keep you glued to the drama, intrigue and hilarity that ensues as everyone goes about their extraordinary daily lives, evolving and interacting in unpredictable and often uproarious ways.

Additional information about Tomodachi Life “will be revealed in the future,” and will be made available for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS systems.

Known as Tomodachi Collection: New Life in Japan, and the second in the series, Tomodachi Life is out June 6 in both regions.
