Did anyone else spit their beverage out when Miitopia was announced? I did NOT see that coming.

I feel like maybe I didn't give Legend of Mana a fair shake back in 2000. I'm tempted to try again.

I was definitely surprised considering Nintendo hasn't been pushing Miis on Switch much. I'm hoping Nintendo considers Wii Sports Resort even it if rebranded the game to Mii Sports Resort or something.
