Japan-only Nintendo DS title Tomodachi Collection is making its way to the small screen. Or the wide-screen. The flat-screen? The plasma screen. Or the LED screen? You get the picture.

Starting on May 5, program "Koi no Kaitou!? Tomokore Ni-Se" (Love's Answer?! Tomodachi Collection 2nd Gen) commences on Tokyo MX. It stars 25-year-old celebrity Mari Sekine (daughter of comedian Tsutomu Sekine), 18-year-old bikini model Maaya Morinaga (daughter of actress Marumi Shiraishi) and 16-year-old fashion model Rima Nishizaki (daughter of baseball player Yukihiro Nishizaki).

Notice anything? They're all the spawn of famous people — hence the "2nd Gen" bit in the show's title. That's the show's spin: It is hosted by the children of celebrities and will feature guests who are also the child of celebs. You know, people who are well-known for simply making their way out of a vagina!

The Tomodachi Collection connection? A Mii will be created for each guest. Last year, Tomodachi Collection was one of the biggest selling DS titles in Japan.
