Blog: Nintendo Invader’s first week in Tomodachi Life (Day 5)

It’s the fifth day here on our pleasant little island and I think it’s time we add some more Tomodachis. The next residents of Destiny Island are Evan and music artist Marina and the Diamonds! Having two female Tomodachis unlocks the Hats shop which works just the same as the regular Clothes shop.


This will also open up the Rankings Board, which shows various stats across different subjects. Rankings vary from Girl Appeal, Boy Appeal, Most Pampered, Most Popular etc. Stats change daily although they don’t provide anything other than a small chuckle to share with your friends as they don’t change the islanders reactions to anything.

Seemingly at random residents will develop illnesses like a cold or stomach pains. Cold medicine and stomach medicine are given out frequently as rewards for fixing problems so these are easily cured. If a resident has a cold you can identify this by a rain cloud following them above their heads. You can identify stomach pains by tapping on the resident’s stomach and check if anything unusual is happening there.

After a few hours of playtime the Port will open. The Port is where StreetPassed Tomodachis enter. At the time of writing I have been unable to StreetPass anyone with Tomodachi Life so am unable to comment further on the uses of the Port. However, I can talk about the mechanics of StreetPass in Tomodachi Life. You will be given a set of questions and depending on what you answer you will be shown three articles of clothing. You can choose one article and this will become your island’s “export item”. This item will be available to buy in the special Import Wear shop on your island. Your island is then given an address that will appear when you StreetPass with someone or when someone scans in a QR code of a Tomodachi you created.

That’s all for today but make sure you come back throughout the week for more updates on the goings on of Destiny Island. Ciao!
