Miitopia is a role-playing game from Nintendo on the Nintendo 3DS. The player composes a team of Miis and sends them on a quest to recover the world's faces. The player doesn't fully control the party, but builds their relationships and abilities indirectly to influence the game.
In February 2021, a port was announced for the Nintendo Switch. The port adds a new makeup and wig system, as well as a horse that can be ridden into battle.
The game starts with the player choosing their Miis for their player and the Dark Lord as they enter the initial town. After wandering outside the town, the player enters the first combat and decides what Job they will take. The player will later decide the other members of the party as they progress and chose their jobs as well as choosing significant side characters. The player takes their team in stages where players go along a path encountering events and battles. In combat, the player can choose what actions the player character does. However, the other party members' actions are generalized and based on what personality they have and their relations with other party members. The player can also use salts to restore health and mana. Mana and health also restore at the inn.
After the day is finished, the player can choose which rooms the characters will be in with two Miis per room. A room with two Miis is more likely to improve their relationship but, bad engagements can still happen. Miis will then ask to buy something varying between food and equipment, but there is a chance they will misspend their money. In the morning, the player chooses their meal which gives specific stat boosts based on the food. There is also an arcade option in which the player can earn items and more gold.
- Pop Star
- Vampire (unlockable)
- Elf (unlockable)
Each food item increases a particular statistic with a few food items increasing multiple stats at once. Each Mii will have a preference when it comes to food, and these preferences will change how much the stat is increased. The current modifiers are Hates, Dislikes, Normal, Likes and Loves. A Mii that dislikes or hates a food item will still have an increased stat gain, but less than someone who loves the food item.

Miitopia received "mixed or average" reviews on Metacritic getting a metascore of 67/100 based on 50 critic reviews.
- This is the first Nintendo-developed game to receive both a "for all ages" (0+) and an "adult" rating (18+) from different rating agencies in different countries. The latter it received from the Russian ratings board, as any game showing same-sex relationships in a positive light gets an automatic 18+ rating in Russia, despite everything else in Miitopia being child-friendly.
