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.)

I just failed to catch a big, scary spider thing and... I think it raped me or something in retaliation. The next thing I know, I woke up outside my house.

I feel violated like I've never been violated before in Animal Crossing, and I will seek revenge.

Haha you found a tarantula
Posted: 06/12/13, 14:28:59
Ha ha, is a tarantula a "deadly creature" in the world of New Leaf?
Posted: 06/12/13, 15:15:31
Before visiting Vicki in Pancakes (and meeting KerryAnn there as well), I tried my luck with the bees. I was 0/10 at that point. Shook a tree on my way to the train station and out came the bees! So I ran north, quick-switched to my net, swiped and...didn't get stung! Haha!

There's a beautiful bee sitting on a honeycomb in the museum now if anyone wants to see it.

Don't ask me how the other four bee hunts went later that evening...


I got bit twice, then caught one on my first night in Clifton.


It was a "deadly creature" in Wild World too, y'know.
Posted: 06/12/13, 16:42:29

That's how you do it. Run north, get out the net with the menu. Then back out and be armed. Swipe when approached.

I just wanted the one. More would have been house payments (which I don't need right now since I just paid off my first house), but that's what fishing is for really.

First time I was killed by the tarantula in Wild World, I turned the game off. So scary! Resetti yelled at me. There was no, "That bug was huge and on my face!" option.
Posted: 06/12/13, 16:59:46
K... killed? Come on, guys. Surely I was just picked up for medical treatment and dropped back on my front porch?

This is all too real to me because as I was downloading New Leaf, I found a brown recluse in my bedroom that I had to do battle with. I was going to go to sleep until I heard Animal Crossing was made available for download. So Nintendo may have saved me from a serious medical disaster if that fucking thing decided to get into bed with me later in the night. *shivers*

Edit: Oh. I just learned that I am a victim of misinformation/urban myth spread by people who don't know what they are talking about and that bites from these "Loxosceles deserta" (not even a brown recluse) are pretty rare and not a big deal. This innocent spider's blood is on my hands!

Oh sweet, there are medals (achievements) awarded to you when you accomplish certain goals.

I was just given a medal for filling up 50% of my fish encyclopedia

This was the guy who got me it. And I had the same reaction when I reeled him in, heh

What is that, a shark? Because I didn't get that reaction when I caught it last night.

Errr, wait...that's on your island, huh? I just got Tortimer to visit today, and I'll get to go to the island tomorrow!

In other news, Mayor Lewis enacted the "Keep Clifton Beautiful" ordinance today and it will take effect tomorrow.
Posted: 06/12/13, 20:44:31
So, if I go to Clifton and leave trash everywhere and uproot flowers, I'm gonna get arrested?

I've started addressing all my letters to the animals with "Greetings citizen" before their names. I'm considering signing them "Lifetime Mayor Vicki." I'm going off Tortimer's example and assuming there are no elections until I retire. Someone let me know if I'm mistaken in that! I'll have to start sending better bribes than sea shells and oranges.
Posted: 06/12/13, 20:55:25

Well I haven't built a police station, so...probably not. I just want less weeds and I want the villagers to water plants...don't have a watering can (and this was a chore for me before) and I want hybrid flowers (to get rarer bugs to appear). None of the rest of my choices really appealed to me.

Ugh I'm getting 018-0512 errors. Anyone else get this? Any work arounds?
Posted: 06/12/13, 22:19:50
I'm not getting it. But I found this. Does it help?

@VickiL Thanks

I tried this and still didn't work. It doesn't make sense as I was just in a far away town earlier during my lunch break @ work.
Posted: 06/13/13, 00:16:23
I cannot stop playing this game. What's wrong with me?
Posted: 06/13/13, 00:56:56
Absolutely nothing. At least I hope not because I am in the same boat as you. This game I find very addicting.
Posted: 06/13/13, 04:35:21
The island mini games are pretty fun with other people!

I proved myself to be a much more efficient diver than @VofEscaflowne ;p

Posted: 06/13/13, 04:44:47
How are you posting images?
Posted: 06/13/13, 04:54:51
I've pretty much spent my entire day off playing this game... I'm definitely rehooked on Animal Crossing.
