Mii wants to visit Hyrule!

“3DSiis”?” Me3DS?” Or just plain ol’ “Miis on the 3DS”?

Whatever they end up calling them (we’re going to place our Rupees on the latter), Miis are making the move to the new handheld system, the 3DS.

Words from Miyamoto himself on the topic after the jump.

In a recent interview with IGN Australia, they asked him if there were any plans to be able to move one’s Mii from the Wii to the 3DS. Mr. Miyamoto had this to say:

“We need to keep in mind how we evolve the Miis and how we think about compatibility with Miis between different systems, but that’s something that we’re definitely giving consideration to and want to continue to try to allow people to use their Miis on different Nintendo systems going forward.”

While not exactly a confirmation, few things that come from him ever really are. However, you can take it as good as read that there will at least be Miis on the 3DS, and we find it extremely likely that your Wii and 3DS Miis will be transferable.

After all, DS games already have this ability, albeit limitedly. For instance, you can play as your Mii on your DS copy of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time. Certainly the 3DS will take this functionality and run with it.

    First. And awesome, but…Echoes of Time Miis? Really? How to you access that? I have Echoes and never saw that option…

    • You must first transfer it from the Wii version to DS. It's cumbersome, but completely possible.

  • Triforce of the Gods

    I think you're thinking of the Wii version :B

  • Rsandee

    Great news, and you typed ''already'' 2 times on your last lines.

  • Chols

    You can actually see some Miis in a screenshot for Mario Kart 3DS: http://e3.nintendo.com/images/ctr/othergames/mari

  • DarkMajora

    How about M3 DS? I think that one will work. But should there be a space in it? I don't think M3DS works as well.

  • RandomGuy

    How about MiiDS? Or 3MiiS? Or 3DMii? I'm quite sure it's just gonna be called a Mii.

  • ZoraMikau

    Uh, bastian, don't even kid around with that picture, I know I'm going to have nightmares already. 😛

    • Haha! Welcome to my nightmare! 😀

  • X x7

    I wanna fight baddies through hyrule with a mii! can't wait for it to come out!

  • anonymous

    Eh. I think the Miis are really ugly and that you can't do much with them, so to have them in game would be nothing but a cheap novelty.

  • Chainoftermina

    I agree with, uh, anonymous. I hate the Miis, they're so useless. I'd rather be the actual character that the game is supposed to be about than a little chibi that sorta looks like me. and I find the option to use a Mii really annoying.

    hehe, that, that's not really a screen shot from Oot 3DS, is it? I mean, the back round doesn't look that much better or different than the N64 graphics….

    • You are correct, sir. It is not. 😀

      • Chainoftermina

        oh, thank god!!!!!

    • "I'd rather be the actual character that the game is supposed to be about than a little chibi that sorta looks like me" That's why they give you an option to be a Mii or not.

      Anyway, they probably will improve the system overall to allow more customisation (I hope they do, I find moving the eyebrows up very annoying to make ears)

  • Thareous33

    I hope they do include Miis to other following gaming systems. I enjoyed finally being able to play as myself in a Mario Kart game, only that I had to use a big bike when I prefer medium sizes, because I am somewhat of a scrag. 8-j It would have been awesome if they put them in Brawl and gave them an assortment of diverse attacks, like with Mr. Game and Watch. Anyway, really excited about both upcoming games, as usual.

  • SkyloftLink

    Guys, there will be Miis on the 3DS. Just look in the background of the Mario Kart 3DS pics.

  • Moochy

    Custom created characters in Hyrule…. a lil iffy on that.

  • eh..I think I still gonna use Link Mii, looks bad,very bad

  • Dakotah

    Oh, this is gonna be tight! Oh? Boom, their goes the dinamite.

  • sprite

    ….mother of god.

  • Zelda4ever

    3iis! (That is MY term, so if they use it, it was MY Idea!)
