The Sims 4 Snowy Escape: Meet the Residents of Mt. Komorebi!

Presented by EA Game Changers

Welcome to Mt. Komorebi

The Sims 4 Snowy Escape comes with three premade families already living in Mt. Komorebi, but these families are unlike any premade families we’ve seen previously in The Sims 4. This is because for the first time since The Sims 2, every family in Mt. Komorebi has pre-existing connections with the other residents in the world; these connections range from positive to negative and are helped along by the new Sentiments system. This not only makes the Sims of Mt. Komorebi feel more real and complex, but also gives the player more tools to create powerful stories (and maybe some drama) between these Sims.

So without any further delay, let’s meet the residents of Mt. Komorebi!

The Ito Household

Household Description

Megumi Ito grew up in Senbamachi. A gold medalist skier, she aims to give her children the same upbringing, but memories of an old flame might drive her to distraction. Naoki Ito is a former medalist himself. A calculating businessman, his controversial vision of Mt. Komorebi includes more tourism, more money, and modernization. Nanami and Kiyoshi have their parents’ athletic talent, but their hearts lie elsewhere. Nanami just wants to be a kid and Kiyoshi is crushing on more than the slopes…

Household Notes

  • Megumi and Kado are ex-lovers. The household description hints that Megumi may be tempted to stray from her husband and rekindle her old flame with Kado; however, this may take some effort on the player’s part considering she has the Hurt sentiment about him.
  • Naoki has a negative relationship with Shigeru; they both harbour the Festering Grudge sentiment with each other. This could cause some tension in the household, considering Naoki’s wife is good friends with Shigeru’s wife and Naoki’s son has strong romantic feelings for Shigeru’s granddaughter.
  • Kiyoshi and Kaori have the potential for a forbidden romance, or “Romeo & Juliet” story, since Kiyoshi’s father and Kaori’s grandfather dislike each other.
  • Nanami’s Kleptomaniac trait might indicate she’s acting out and trying to rebel against the high standards her successful parents have imposed on her.
  • If Get Famous is installed, Naoki and Megumi will start out as celebrities; Megumi will be a Rising Star and Naoki will be a Noticeable Newcomer. This is most likely due to them both being former Olympian medalists.
