    Tomodachi Life has now sold 2 million copies in Europe in under 3 years. While it's not as impressive as the Call of duty games or other first party games, we can still appreciate how many people have put their time into helping their miis in their everyday life.​

    That's great but the game seems to be censored here and there, just take the happy birthday song as an example. Instead of having them singing the lyrics it was swapped to "la la la" so my guess is that they did this to not offend religious people who don't celebrate birthdays. Nintendo trying to play parent for everyone will just end up doing more harm than good.

    That might acturally be of copyright reasons: https://www.unhappybirthday.com/
    While it seems it is public domain now, it wasn't a year ago.

    Awesome! 2 million is a huge amount for such a wacky title, especially one that was probably localized purely on a whim. Glad to see it sold so well.

    Agreed, and this is only in Europe so I wonder what USA sales are like. I haven't checked yet.

    I love this game! I wish my offspring that have been cast on the wind would return though. They never call, they never write. :(
