Like any good RPG, Miitopia is a lengthy adventure that is made even longer with heaps of extra side missions to complete. This is not even mentioning the hours you'll spend creating and downloading Miis. But the best part about Miitopia is that you are responsible for every face you see throughout the game, so every playthrough is guaranteed to be unique. However, there might be a point where you'd like to restart your adventure, with new faces in different roles.

There's no New Game Plus in Miitopia, so that means you'll have to restart your game to play a fresh save. However, doing so is a snap. Here's how to restart your game in Miitopia.

An adventure all your own

Miitopia is a unique RPG with tons of replayability, but it all depends on the creativity of the player. Play the game again after you restart Miitopia with new Miis in different jobs and personalities and save the world as many times as you'd like. Miitopia was lost in the shuffle of the Nintendo Switch when it originally launched in 2017, but it has an opportunity to strike gold with this remaster. Miitopia is sure to be one of the best RPGs on the Nintendo Switch when it launches on May 21.
