Nintendo has announced that anyone who buys Tomodachi Life will also receive two free codes for the Welcome Version, a kind of cut-down demo available from the eShop.
Welcome Version lets you create a Mii, choose their silly voice and personality, and play a limited selection of what's on offer on the island that comprises the main game. Completing the Welcome Version also unlocks a panda suit for in-game Miis.
The game's out on 6th June. I've had a pretty great time with it so far - though the fact that the game doesn't accommodate gay relationships has been especially noticeable on my island, which is largely populated by past and present contestants from RuPaul's Drag Race.
