Tomodachi Life U (known as WiiのUのためのトモダチコレクション, or Tomodachi Collection for Wii U) is the third game for the Tomodachi Life/Collection series and features the same gameplay as Tomodachi Life (3DS) with some new features. It was created by Float Island Inc. and is obviously for the Wii U. Production was started in early 2015 and was finished in early 2015, which was a surprise for fans who thought it would be released in late March/early April. It is rated E.
