Animal Crossing: New Leaf Review (Nintendo 3DS) (9.7)  by  

Animal Crossing... I still remember getting up early before heading to my high school classes just to see what Tom Nook was selling that day. This game series has always held such a dear place in my heart. I think it has to do with the fact that heading to the land of Plaisant, Tranquil, or other towns of mine always being a great escape for me. Making Bells, filling my catalog, and fishing in the ocean were always points of peace for me. While I've been very public about my discontent with AC: City Folk, I have a new-found hope once more for New Leaf. From all the information that has been dished out due to the game's release already in Japan, and Nintendo pushing more information through Nintendo Directs, I am confident this game will be a fresh take on a classic and comforting idea.

The game released in North America on June 9th, 2013 and released in other territories shortly after.

Please use this thread for all discussion on the game. If you would like to make trades or visit towns, please use the specific Animal Crossing New Leaf Trading Thread for further assistance. It makes more sense to keep this focused on the gameplay and game discussion while leaving bartering out of it. There are no Friend Codes this time around for Animal Crossing, which is a blessing! Many of us have already befriended ourselves via the 3DS Friend Codes Thread thread. That thread will be where we continue to befriend each other and trade 3DS IDs for the sake of visiting each other's towns.

Many many years ago I discovered a wonderful Animal Crossing website which has a great catalog feature set up. Now, the new game will mean it'll take time for the site to get a full correct catalog up and running but I expect it to work beautifully once more to allow anyone to track their catalog there. You can find this website at the Animal Crossing Community page. They also have forums there which are very active right now in anticipation of this game. Granted, the general age of the members of that site fall a bit lower than here, but I've found over all the years I've been there that the discussion is still mostly pleasant and easy.

Lastly, I want you all to enjoy the music from this new game or any of the games, whenever you want. The following site will allow you to hear the "Xam" or "Xpm" music that would naturally occur in your life right now as if you were in the game. You can select from any of the Animal Crossing games and the music will continually loop until the hour changes. It's pretty cool. You can find that page here. It's by default at the City Folk music.

So again, everyone enjoy this game! Enjoy this discussion! If you're interested in being negative about the title, just find your way to a different thread for that because this thread is about the experience and meant to bring the community together during the launch of one of the most community driven games Nintendo offers.

Say hello to Kapp'n, cause we're about to make it into town on June 9th.

(One more quick note; Keep an eye out for the game's review, which I will write sometime in the end of June probably.)

Yeah, it's hard coming up with good names with such a low character limit.

May and I have been very busy lately with our 3-month son (lots of challenges lately); she almost forgot this game came out yesterday! Anyway, long story short, I wanted to get her the Animal Crossing 3DS XL special edition and it's sold out everywhere. Like, no matter how many stores I call or how many websites I go to, there are none available. I had no idea this thing was going to be this popular. Either that or Nintendo really did make this a true limited edition version. Lesson learned: I should have pre-ordered! Ugh.

She still has the regular 3DS. We shall see if we will continue to wait until the XL AC version becomes available again or maybe just get her a standard color XL.

She said maybe I could go ahead and get the game first so I can get my town going so that when she has her own copy of the game and her own town, I'll be able to help her out with stuff from my town. Hmmmm.

My girlfriend is having the exact same funky issue. Mine is on the UPS delivery trick though.

I downloaded it last night. Got up this morning and promptly fired up ACNL. Named my town Bree, played just long enough to get to where I could save and quit. Brought my 3ds with me to work, and I'll fire it up again at lunch.

Oh, and I got my real life favorite fruit, cherries! I don't know why that makes me so happy, but it does. I'm also in need of a 2nd bridge ASAP. That will be the first thing I do as Mayor.

I just bought the Digital Version because they ran out of the physical copy. I'm downloading now.

The going is slow for me so far. But I like the slower pace of this game...no need to rush. I'm going to work on getting a better house first. It's embarrassing to be Mayor and yet live in a tent.

It'll go super fast once you get a fishing rod.

I got my house today, and it's already going to be expanded by tomorrow morning

So, when can I change my Town Tune?
Posted: 06/10/13, 22:54:44
Once you get to do mayor stuff. For me that was today.
Posted: 06/10/13, 22:55:37
I changed my town tune and flag yesterday, while I was still living in my tent. You should be able to talk to Isabelle and do it now.

Nooks had the same tools as yesterday. I guess no bug hunting for me.
Posted: 06/10/13, 23:08:08
Mine came in! Off to play!

Breaking Bad style.

Isabelle won't let me do anything else. She's like, "You just moved in...blah, blah, blah." I really want to change the Town Tune.
Posted: 06/11/13, 04:09:04
Hmm... to start all over or not to start all over. I'm regretting my character's name, my town name, and my town map choice. But I already have close to ten hours logged, and I'm not horribly opposed to my choices... Oh my terrible indecisiveness!
Posted: 06/11/13, 04:24:56

What's bad about your town?


What's the best way to upload or share your photos? I've taken some but I don't know the easiest way to get them on my mac...
Posted: 06/11/13, 04:27:07
Are you talking to her at the front desk? The back desk is just for mayoral duties.
Posted: 06/11/13, 05:28:17
And after catching three of the four bees I found tonight, I am off to bed. Fun game.

I used img.ly to upload pics through Twitter... it's slow but I just wanted to check it out. Or of course just stick your SD card in a computer and grab them from there. Faster to just grab a phone and snap a pic of the screen
